SpaceX’s Inspiration4 mission is a resounding success. The crew made up of all civilians had no space professionals on board. Jared Isaacman, Hayley Arceneaux, Dr. Sian Proctor, and Chris Sembroski all received only 6-months of training. 

The capsule’s four main chutes opened as the Inspiration4 capsule made a perfect landing.  Splashdown took place in the Atlantic Ocean near the Florida coast on September 18.

Each of the four crew members represented Leadership, Hope, Generosity, and Prosperity.

They began their journey on September 15, from Hangar X at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.

The crew, launched by a Falcon rocket, rode in a modified Crew Dragon module during their 3-day mission. They were flying 360 miles above the Earth’s surface.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk was on hand to see the crew off. And he monitored the mission closely. Musk was excited to see the launch. And was interested in the modifications he had suggested for the module.
