SpaceX has safely and successfully completed the Inspiration4 mission, launching crewmembers Jared Isaacman, Dr. Sian Proctor, Hayley Arceneaux, and Christopher Sembroski to and from orbit. The crew lifted off on Wednesday, September 15th, at 8:02 PM EDT from Kennedy Space Center flying aboard a Dragon being launched by a Falcon 9 rocket. The crew returned from space three days later, splashing down off the coast of Florida.
