SpaceX All-Civilian Crew Show Excitement before the Launch

SpaceX All-Civilian Crew Show Excitement before the Launch

The Index Today

The first ever all-civilian crew chosen for the SpaceX rocket ship revealed their excitement for the upcoming orbit launch. The “Inspiration4” team is due for liftoff on Wednesday at 8pm GMT at the launch complex 39A Kennedy Space Center. The orbital flight is expected to last for three days before making its final landing back on earth.
The crew received telephone calls from former first lady Michelle Obama who wished them luck on the firs-of-a-kind journey. The crew includes Sian Proctor, geoscience professor, Jet pilot Jared Isaacman, physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux and data engineer Chris Sembroski.
The orbital flight carries greater risks as compared to the astro-tourism flights made by SpaceX rivals Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin. Inspiration4 may face the risk of radiation exposure and will spend more time in outer space.
However, the crew showed complete faith and confidence in the SpaceX which is owned by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk who conducted a pre-flight check in call to give his assurance. The team is excited and looks forward to the space mission.
