Elon Musk's company SpaceX sent four tourists into space. The rocket started at Cape Canaveral at 4:03 Tbilisi time, the BBC reports.
The mission includes Inspiration4 amateur, non-professional astronauts who were preparing for the trip for six months. The crew members include billionaire Jared Isaacman, tourist Hayley Arceneaux, entrepreneur and researcher Xian Proctor, and U.S. Air Force veteran Chris Sembroski.
It is noteworthy that Hayley Arceneaux has health problems. As a child, Arceneaux had bone cancer, which required a leg amputation. Space tourists will travel around the Earth for the next three days.
