SpaceX Sends 4 Civilians Into Orbit

By Sean Idriss, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

Last night, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 heavy rocket carrying only civilians from Kennedy Space Center in Florida which marked the first “All Civilian Crew” in space.

The orbit will go 575 kilometers high into space, making the expedition go farther than the International Space Station. The civilian crew prepared for 6 months prior to the launch and will spend the next 3 days in orbit before splashing back down in Florida.
