First All-Civilian Crew Launched Into Orbit Aboard Space X Rocket Ship A SpaceX rocket ship blasted off on Wednesday and carried a billionaire and three other, not billionaires. The group of people flew into Earth’s orbit.
A group of amateur astronauts led by the American founder and chief executive of the financial services firm Shift4 Payments Inc (FOUR.N), Jared Isaacman, launched their spaceship just before sunset from Cape Canaveral. The spaceship roared into the dark sky.
A SpaceX webcast showed a capsule called Resilience. The people inside were wearing black and white suits. They were strapped in, and they were called Isaacman, 38; Sian Proctor, 51; Hayley Arceneaux, 29; and Chris Sembroski, 42.
This rocket has a remarkable dome on it. It is called the Crew Dragon, and it went into space. This happened because we launched it with a two-stage Falcon 9 rocket.
The rocket’s first-stage booster, after separating from the spacecraft’s top half, fell to Earth. It landed on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean. This is called Just Read the Instructions.
Amid cheers heard in SpaceX’s mission-control center, the spacecraft climbed high above Earth. A man named Isaacman read a statement thanking everyone who made this journey possible. Few people have come before, and many people are about to follow.”
“The door is open now,” he said. “It’s pretty incredible.”
The mission will go as high as 360 miles from Earth. This is higher than the International Space Station or Hubble Space Telescope. It is the furthest anyone has been from Earth since 1972 when NASA’s Apollo moon program ended.
The spacecraft will be at the height of about 22 miles above the Earth. The spacecraft will circle the Earth in about 90 minutes. It moves at a speed of around 22 times faster than sound.
The first human-crewed mission with professionals on board is going to last for about three days. They will leave from the launch pad and land in the Atlantic Ocean.
This is the first flight for SpaceX’s new business. It lets people ride on rocket ships. This is better than other businesses because it has spaceflight.
NASA is excited about the commercialization of spaceflight. This means that more people will be able to fly into space to do research. This also means more opportunities for science.
Isaacman paid $200 million to fly with Musk and other people. The price was not said.
The mission’s primary goal is to raise awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It is also a favorite cause of the person who came up with this mission.

Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos are both billionaires. They each went on a trip to space with their company’s new program this summer.
It is hard to go to space when you only fly for a little while. That is different from Inspiration 4.
SpaceX is already one of the most well-established companies in this new industry. It has sent astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA. Two of its Dragon capsules are there now.
The Inspiration4 crew doesn’t fly the spacecraft. It is operated by people on the ground and by guidance systems on board. But two members of the team are pilots who can also help with flight.
The crew includes the chief medical officer, Arceneaux. He is a bone cancer survivor who became a St. Jude physician assistant. The mission specialist, Sembroski, is a U.S. Air Force veteran and an aerospace data engineer.”
So far, the four crewmates have spent five months getting ready. For example, they did fitness at high altitudes and a machine that makes you feel like you’re moving fast. They also had to learn what it feels like when gravity is not pulling on them and what emergencies might happen. In class, they learned how the body works during spaceflight, and they also got medical exams from doctors to make sure their bodies could handle spaceflight.
The crew will do experiments on things that we need for health. These could be good for people who live on Earth and those who live in space.
Medical data and samples will be collected from the people on the spaceship before, during, and after the flight.
Arceneaux was in charge of the experiments that were done onboard the spacecraft. She also made history as the youngest American to be launched into space and the youngest among just over 550 humans who have ever been in Earth orbit.
