Billionaire Elon Musk made history when he launched the first spacecraft carrying all normal passengers, without astronauts.
Recently, billionaire Elon Musk’s company SpaceX has surprised the whole world when launching a spacecraft into space, but all the crews this time are just ordinary people.
Accordingly, this is not the first time that passengers are ordinary people who pay to fly into space, but this is the first flight into space without a professional astronaut on board. This historic flight will open a new stage in sending people into space, not only for governments and research agencies and companies.
This special and historic flight is called the Inspiration4 mission. It is known that on the spacecraft was a technology entrepreneur, 38 years old named Jared Isaacman, a geologist, 51 years old – Sian Proctor, Chris Sembroski – an aerospace data engineer, 42 years old and Hayley Arceneaux – a physician assistant, 29 years old. These 4 passengers will have 3 days of flying in Earth orbit.
In fact, not all of these 4 passengers did not have to pay for this flight. It was Isaacman, founder and CEO of a transaction processing company in Pennsylvania, who paid an undisclosed amount for this particular SpaceX ride. As the Inspiration4 mission is part of a charity run to raise money for St. Jude, so Isaacman donated $100 million to this hospital.

The successful launch of this spacecraft with all humans this time is considered an impressive step forward for SpaceX and Elon Musk in the race into space with 2 other billionaires, Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) and Richard Branson. (founder of Virgin Group).
In the past, Elon Musk has repeatedly said that he will soon send ordinary people into space. And finally, the promises that seemed exaggerated and could not be fulfilled, now the whole world has to admit that Elon has fulfilled many of his “crazy” promises that many people consider to be very “crazy”.
