SpaceX Space Tourism Launch Set For Today

Hawthorne, California-based SpaceX is getting set to launch its first ever, space tourism focused mission today from Florida. According to SpaceX, there's a give-hour launch window today opening at 8:02 p.m. for the Inspiration4 mission, which it says will be the world's "first ever all-civilian human spaceflight". The mission is thanks to billionaire Jared Isaacman, founder of Shift4 Payments, who paid for the entire launch. Going along with the ride with Issacman are three other individuals -- Hayley Arceneaux, a physician assistant at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and pediatric cancer survivor, plus Chris Sembroski, an Air Force veteran and aerospace data engineer; and Dr. Sian Proctor, a geoscientist, entrepreneur, and trained pilot. Isaacman has been raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as part of his purchase of the space tourism flight.
