US launched Crew Dragon (Inspiration4 mission) spacecraft.
15:09

On September 16, 2021 at 00:02 UTC the American SpaceX’s Crew Dragon “Resilience” (Inspiration4 mission) spacecraft was launched from Kennedy Space Center (LC39A), Florida, USA. The space vehicle was orbited by the “Falcon-9” rocket-carrier.

There are 4 crew members aboard the spacecraft – Mission Commander Jared Isaacman (left); pilot Sian Proctor (second left); medical officer Hayley Arceneaux (second right); mission specialist Christopher Sembroski (right). All 4 are from the USA. Inspiration4 is the first human spaceflight to orbit Earth with only private citizens on board and the first spacecraft to orbit with an all-rookie crew since “Shenzhou-7” in 2008. The last time NASA launched an all-rookie orbital crew was STS-2 in 1981. The Inspiration4 mission is the second flight of the “Resilience” spacecraft, following its use for Crew-1 mission. It also marked the 4th crewed flight of a “Crew Dragon” spacecraft (also known as “SpaceX Dragon 2” spacecraft).
