SpaceX Launched The First-Ever All-Civilian Crew Into Space

Our dreams of launching into outer space might be closer than we think.

Elon Musk’s space company launched the first-ever all civilian spaceflight, making it the first space mission without any astronauts on board.

Leading the mission is billionaire and pilot Jared Isaacman, who seems to be living it up above our stratosphere alongside the rest of his civilian-filled mates.

The SpaceX Dragon capsule took off on Wednesday Night, launched by a Falcon 9 rocket from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Dragon capsule holds names like Chris Sembroski, Dr. Sian Proctor, and Hayley Arceneaux. What makes the trip all the more “intimate” is that the civilian crew will have to share a toilet, shower, and sleep in the same reclining seats they took off in.

Space tourists were thrilled to witness the launch and celebrate the historical takeoff, and the same goes for those back home in mission control (and, of course, those on board too).

The Dragon capsule will be in orbit and floating through space for the next three days, passing by earth about once every 90 minutes and taking in earth’s unimaginable birds-eye-view.
