SpaceX had a successful launch of the Inspiration4 mission on Wednesday, and since the event, the crew has been enjoying the Dragon spacecraft’s cupola, as shown in some pictures shared on Friday.

The Inspiration4 crew has officially completed 15 orbits around the Earth since its Wednesday launch, according to @SpaceX. The post was accompanied by photos depicting the crew, which is made up of Jared Isaacman, Hayley Arceneaux, Dr. Sian Proctor, and Chris Sembroski.

During the three-day mission, the Inspiration4 team will conduct a number of health experiments about human space travel for SpaceX, as well as studies for the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH), Baylor College of Medicine, and Weill Cornell Medicine.

You can also watch a documentary on Netflix about SpaceX’s Inspiration4 mission, which is now live on the streaming platform and will continue to release episodes after the mission is complete.

On Monday, the Inspiration4 crew completed a static fire test of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 booster, signaling that the equipment was officially ready. While SpaceX planned for (and completed) launch during Wednesday’s 8-hour launch window, it also held Thursday as a potential backup for the launch in case of inclement weather on Wednesday.
