This summer SpaceX plans to launch the first-ever all-civilian spaceflight with four crewmembers on a mission called Inspiration4

The mission will send the crew on a three-day mission to orbit Earth in a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. It is scheduled to lift off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday, Sept. 15, riding to orbit on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The privately funded mission will raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. See photos of the historic mission here by clicking on the right arrows above.
