On Wednesday (Sept 17), Space X created history by launching its first ever all-civilian flight to space without any astronauts! As per reports, the flight set out to the Earth's orbit, had one billionaire e-commerce executive and three other private citizens on-board.
The four were sent to space under the mission, called 'Inspiration4' and blasted off from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in U.S's Florida. Leading the flight is Jared Isaacman along with his companions - Sian Proctor, Hayley Arceneaux, and Chris Sembroski.
A SpaceX webcast of the launch showed the four strapped into the pressurised cabin of their gleaming white SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, dubbed Resilience, wearing their helmeted black-and-white flight suits.
Isaac is the fourth billionaire to enter the race into Space tourism after SpaceX founder Elon Musk, Blue Origin's Jeff Bezos and Virgin Galactic's Richard Branson.
