Inspiration 4 is an unprecedented SpaceX space mission that aims to orbit the Earth for three days. It is the first made up of civilians only: entrepreneur and initiative promoter Jared Isaacman, medical assistant Hayley Arceneaux, space data engineer Chris Sembroski and geoscientist Sian Proctor.

The mission hopes to raise $ 200 million to help find cures for childhood cancer and other dangerous pediatric diseases, in addition to supporting the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

As part of the project, Netflix will shoot a documentary about the mission experience, the proceeds of which will also add to the goal of Inspiration 4.

The space mission will also allow for scientific studies with the goal of promoting health during future long-duration space flights.

How to watch Inspiration 4 take off

The Inspiration 4 mission is scheduled to take off this Wednesday, September 15 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center launch complex 39A, the same one used by the Apollo missions or space shuttles.

According to SpaceX, the flight has a five-hour launch window, which opens from 8:02 pm ET on Wednesday the 15th. Details can be followed at the SpaceX YouTube channel, which will begin broadcasting about four hours before takeoff.

Orbit the Earth for three days

Dragon Capsule for Inspiration 4
The Dragon capsule was modified for this unprecedented space mission.

When in flight, SpaceX’s Dragon space capsule will reach a maximum distance of 575 kilometers from Earth. Thus, it will exceed the 540 kilometers of the Hubble space telescope and the 420 kilometers of the International Space Station (ISS)

The Dragon spacecraft, which will orbit for three days before returning to Earth, is the same one that has been used by Elon Musk’s company for its flights to the ISS, although it has some modifications to provide a unique view of space.

The capsule was equipped with an observation dome that will provide the Inspiration 4 crew with a 360-degree view of space. The dome was installed in the same place where the mechanism that allows it to dock with the International Space Station is generally located.
