Primeira missão espacial civil

By Jordi Bou

September 15, 2021 - A Inspiration4 é a primeira missão a orbitar a Terra sem um astronauta
profissional a bordo. O milionário Jared Isaacman comprou quatro voos da SpaceX para reunir $200m para um hospital pediátrico em Memphis.

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 NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sep 15, riding to orbit on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

The privately funded mission will raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The crew includes Jared Isaacman, contest winner Sian Proctor, childhood cancer survivor Hayley Arceneaux and raffle winner Chris Sembroski.

Along with the recent space journeys by billionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, Inspiration4 is seen as part of an effort to open up space travel to non-professionals

Netflix’s five-episode docuseries will depict crew preparations, live launch on Sep 15, and return to Earth.
