SpaceX to launch world’s first all-commercial astronaut mission

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has announced recently that in the fourth quarter of this year Falcon 9’s launch of Inspiration4 – the world’s first all-commercial astronaut mission to orbit – from historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. 

The company’s technology entrepreneur Jared Isaacman, founder and CEO of Shift4 Payments, will be the man to command, donating the three seats alongside him. So, the general public can be anyone and they will be announced in the weeks ahead. You can potentially join this historic journey to space by visiting Inspiration4.com.

SpaceX in a statement has said:

“The Inspiration4 crew will receive commercial astronaut training by SpaceX on the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and Dragon spacecraft, orbital mechanics, operating in microgravity, zero gravity, and other forms of stress testing. They will go through emergency preparedness training, spacesuit and spacecraft ingress and egress exercises, as well as partial and full mission simulations.”

“This multi-day journey, orbiting Earth every 90 minutes along a customized flight path, will be carefully monitored at every step by SpaceX mission control. Upon conclusion of the mission, Dragon will reenter Earth’s atmosphere for soft water landing off the coast of Florida.”

“This is an important milestone toward enabling access to space for everyone,” Musk said on a conference call with Isaacman, according to news agency Bloomberg.

This first all-commercial astronaut mission could be a very important milestone as Space missions will get more commercial in the future. Musk’s SpaceX is doing a great job with this mission as not only it seeks to raise support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital but also make human spaceflight more common.
