The first commercial crew Elon Musk will send into space via SpaceX will take off this September 15 at 7:02 pm (Mexico City time) in a Falcon 9 rocket, which will fly 580 kilometers from the Earth’s surface, that is, it will go further than the International Space Station, which is about 400 km from the surface of the planet.
Inspiration’s crew will include Sian Proctor and Hayley Arceneaux, Jared Isaacman and Chris Sembroski.
SpaceX Launchpad 39A, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, will host Inspiration4’s liftoff at 7:02 pm (Mexico City Time).
The Crew Dragon (ship), will be separated from the Falcon 9 rocket, so that the rocket can return to an Atlantic Ocean launch pad, while the ship can continue its journey into space. .
You can follow the launch live on YouTube, as you have with previous SpaceX launches.
What SpaceX has not yet made clear is whether there will be a live broadcast of the mission in space, which will last 3 days.
A few days earlier, it was revealed that 4 astronauts will be taking with them an Apple Watch Series 6, iPhone 12 Pro, and an iPad mini 4, to conduct a study on how travel to other planets affects 4 non-professional astronauts.
