This is the first time that no one in a rocket has been a professional astronaut. Two men and two women in SpaceX’s Dragon capsule spent three days orbiting the globe from an orbit 100 miles (160 kilometers) above the International Space Station.
The flight was led by Jared Isaacman, 38. Jared is the Executive Manager of Shift4 Payments Inc. Besides them, cancer-recovered Hayley Arsinaux (29), sweepstakes winner Chris Sambrowski (42) and Sean Proctor, 51, a community college teacher in Arizona, were part of the flight.
Arsinaux is the youngest American to go into space, as well as the first person to go into space with a prosthesis. A titanium rod is lying in his left leg. SpaceX’s ‘Crew Dragon Capsule’ carrying four people left for space on Thursday morning from ‘Kennedy Space Center’ in Florida, US.
