Elon Musk's SpaceX created history, sent four civilians into space for the first time

Businessman Elon Musk's American aerospace company SpaceX has created history by sending four ordinary people into space. SpaceX today set a new record by launching the Inspiration 4 mission into space with the world's first all-civilian crew. SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule carrying four people took off for space on a Falcon-9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA, at around 5.30 am (Indian time) this morning.

In fact, under this mission, four amateur astronauts are traveling at an altitude of 357 miles (575 kilometers) above the surface of the Earth, who will stay in the Earth's orbit for three days in a private spacecraft, that is, the spacecraft will orbit the Earth. The special thing about this mission is that there is not a single professional astronaut in it. This mission has been named Inspiration 4. Humans will be at such a height for the first time since 2009.

This SpaceX flight is powered by a Falcon 9 rocket. The launch took place from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, US, where the Apollo 11 mission once flew to the Moon. By sending such a team on a space mission, an attempt is being made to signal that space is now open to all. Billionaire businessman Jared Isaacman is behind this project. He hired the entire mission at his own expense and then invited three unnamed men to accompany him. A unique selection process was adopted to select his co-travelers.

A long-standing interest in space Isaacman, 38, is the founder of a company called "Shift4Payments" and is the commander of the mission. His company services shops and restaurants to complete bank card transactions. He started this company at the age of 16 from the basement of his house. He loves to fly airplanes and has a record of going around the world in a light jet.
