SPACEX launched the first ever all-civilian crew into Earth's orbit on Wednesday - in a major leap for space tourism.
The Inspiration 4 mission, which is the first chartered passenger flight for Elon Musk's SpaceX, took place in NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Commanding the historic flight is billionaire Jared Isaacman, who took control of the Falcon 9 rocket as it took off as scheduled - carrying the Dragon capsule toward it's three-day orbit 357 miles from Earth's surface.
