Funded by 34-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman, Inspiration4 is a fundraising space mission that will launch four civilian passengers into space aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon vessel on a Falcon 9 rocket, for a three-day trip orbiting Earth.
The mission was announced back in February, and last week we got a glimpse into the nature of the experiments the crew will be conducting during the voyage.
With the launch mere days away, SpaceX is in the process of making final preparations to send civilians into space. The Inspiration4 crew successfully completed their pre-launch flight readiness review earlier this month, and are looking good to go.
Given favorable launch conditions in SpaceX’s chosen window of opportunity on September 15, the Inspiration4 crew will carry out SpaceX’s first all-civilian space mission. The Inspiration4 mission is going to be documented, in “near real-time”, in a Netflix series.
