On Wednesday, SpaceX launched the first fully civilian crew into orbit from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on the Crew Dragon spacecraft. The crew included Chris Sembroski, an engineer from Lockheed Martin; Jared Isaacman, billionaire leading the mission; Sian Proctor, a University professor from Phoenix; and Hayley Arceneaux, pediatric cancer survivor and current medical assistant.
During the three-day space mission, SpaceX advised that “the @ Inspiration4x crew will conduct scientific research designed to advance human health on Earth and in future long-duration space flights.”
The Crew Dragon spaceship landed successfully back on Earth off the coast of Florida on Saturday.
The mission also aimed to raise $ 200 million for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where Arceneaux has already received treatment. The Inspiration4 mission had raised $ 160.2 million when the crew returned on Saturday, and Musk pledged an additional $ 50 million donation, bringing the total to $ 210 million.
Although Biden and the White House have not commented on the historic theft, other high-profile agencies, businesses and officials have.
