History was created by the Elon Musk’s company SpaceX as the company has sent 4 ordinary people to space for the first time ever in the human history. The Folker 9 rocket was launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Research Center in Florida, and the Dragon capsule separated from the rocket after about 12 minutes. This capsule will orbit the Earth at an altitude of 575 km for 3 days.
After 12 years, that is, for the first time since 2009, man has reached such a height. In May 2009, scientists went to an altitude of 541 km to repair the Hubble telescope, but today the common man has reached 575 km. Although the International Space Station is frequently visited by the astronauts, but it is at an altitude of 408 kilometres, which is one and a half hundred kilometres less than today’s distance.

The four members of the mission have never gone to space before, after 5 months of training, these people were ready for the mission.
Through the Inspiration 4 mission, funds are to be collected for the Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee, USA.
