SpaceX Launches The First All-Civilian Crew Into Orbit!

Yesterday, SpaceX made history by blasting an all-civilian crew into orbit for the first time.

The three-day ‘Inspiration4’ mission was chartered by billionaire Jared Isaacman, and will raise more than $200 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
