Countdown to mission Inspiration 4 by SpaceX
It is with great interest that the departure of the first manned space mission – Inspiration 4 – is expected, which will include – not astronauts – but ordinary citizens. Space X by the now well-known Elon Musk has announced that the team will “leave” the earth on September 15. The Inspiration 4 spacecraft will be launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and we will be able to watch live!
Through the frequency of Netflix, space fans can watch the training, launch and landing of the crew. The documentary series “Countdown: Mission Inspiration 4 in Space” follows the crew of the craft, with the first two episodes already in the air.

We know that the trip will take 3-4 days. A rotation around the Earth is programmed every 90 minutes, on a predetermined course and under the close monitoring of SpaceX’s control center. In the first episode of the documentary, the preparations for the mission of the 4 citizens to space begin. In the second we see how the crew members are selected, with impatience peaking.
It is noted that four people successfully passed the training required for such a trip. They are Sian Proctor, a professor of Geoscience at South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, Arizona, Chris Sembroski, a former air force pilot, Hayley Arceneaux, who works as an infirmary assistant, and American billionaire Jared Isaacman, who inspired the mission.
According to SpaceX, the target for launch is now Wednesday, September 15. There will be a five-hour launch window, starting at 8:02 pm EDT.
