SpaceX's First Astronaut Flight Reaches Earth Orbit

Thursday, September 16, 2021

SpaceX has succeeded in sending 'novice astronauts' into Earth orbit via a private flight.


The successful September 15 flight is the company's most significant breakthrough in space tourism. It was the company's first passenger chartered flight owned by Elon Musk, and the first time a crew that was not a professional astronaut was sent into orbit by a rocket. The rocket was launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center and was led by 38-year-old Gerard Isaac Mann.


Gerard Isaac Mann is a billionaire and the third billionaire to go into space in 2021, after Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos. She was accompanied by 29-year-old Hayley Arsenox, a physician assistant at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital after battling childhood cancer. Gerard Isaac Mann has donated Rs 100 million to the hospital and has promised another Rs 100 million.


He was accompanied by 42-year-old Chris Sambrowski and 51-year-old Sean Proctor. All of these passengers will return to the coast of Florida after spending 3 days in Earth orbit. NASA had no role in the flight, but its officials and astronauts described it as impressive.


Gerard Isaac Mann paid for the flight but did not say how many millions of dollars it cost. The capsule they have in space is automated, but for the flight, all four passengers were trained for six months to deal with any emergencies.
