USA Gymnastics, SpaceX, and Time’s 100

By news / On / In Development

SpaceX. Yesterday, Elon Musk’s space company made history after its all-civilian mission launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This year, the space race among billionaires has taken off with Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos lifting off. Now, this mission (dubbed Inspiration4) sent four ‘regular’ people into orbit. Including a physician assistant (and cancer survivor), a geoscientist, and a US Air Force veteran. Jared Isaacman, the billionaire who purchased the flight to help raise money for childhood cancer, is leading the crew. They will be flying higher than the International Space Station – the farthest any human has gone from Earth since 2009. The crew will carry out experiments on human health (think: studying balance, running blood tests) during their three days circling the Earth. And are expected to splash down in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday. via
