SpaceX and Inspiration4 teams met on September 2 at SpaceX's Hawthorne headquarters to discuss the readiness for the upcoming space flight. After the meeting, the company announced that the launch of the first all-civilian crew into space would take place on September 15 from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
If the launch does not take place on September 15, another launch is scheduled for September 16. The exact launch time will be announced three days before the flight and will depend on weather conditions.
Today, on September 9, all crew members should arrive in Florida for the final preparations before the flight.
The crew of the Inspiration4 mission has no professional astronauts. It will consist of businessman Jared Isaacman who will be the commander, physician assistant from the Children's Research Hospital Hayley Arceneaux, educator and entrepreneur Dr. Sian Proctor, and United States Air Force veteran Chris Sembroski.
The Inspiration4 mission will spend 2-4 days in space. It will be launched using the Dragon capsule from SpaceX. After completing the flight, the crew will splash down in the Atlantic Ocean.
