An influential space company, SpaceX is getting ready to launch its first “all-civilian human” space mission under the name of Inspiration4, Reuters reported on Sunday.
Scheduled to be sent to space on September 15, the team of the mission was announced on Twitter after passing the required spaceflight tests.
The spaceflight will be launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the selected four persons will conduct their historical tour around the Earth in SpaceX’s Crew Dragon space device.

On September 15, SpaceX will launch Inspiration4, its “historic first all-civilian human spaceflight mission,” into orbit.
Billionaire Jared Issacman, Dr. Sian Proctor, Hayley Arceneaux, and Chris Sembroski will start their final preparations for the historic flight on Thursday in Florida.
They will be trained on how to adapt to the conditions in the spacecraft, weather, pressure, and emergency landing.
During the three-day tour, the four civilian astronauts will orbit around the earth once every 90 minutes.
SpaceX started sending manned-space missions to the International Space Station using the company’s Crew Dragon Capsule. The number of these habited trips reached three spaceflights in less than a year.
The latest one was launched in April 2021, and it carried four astronauts who belong to different leading space agencies.
The four travelers are from the US, Japan, and France. It reached the ISS on Saturday in a 23-hour route. Two of them were conducted from NASA, 1 from the European Space Agency, and 1 from the Japanese Space Agency.
