Washington. The dream of space travel seems to be coming true now. Till now scientists or researchers were sent for research in space, but now for the first time common people have been sent to space as space tourism. Elon Musk’s company SpaceX has done this.
SpaceX has sent four people into space from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. He has been sent on a space walk through the Inspiration 4 rocket. All these people will travel to space for the next 3 days and after that they will return to Earth. Through this first of its kind campaign, now the path of space tourism is also getting easier.

Before going to space, the Inspiration 4 team said in a tweet, “Hastec Inspiration 4 and Atdarate SpaceX have completed our flight readiness review and the track is ready for launch.” In February this year, SpaceX announced a charity-run mission called Inspiration 4.
At the same time, Jeff Bezos also went to space with three people on the first flight of his company ‘Blue Origin’ for space travel in July. Bezos, the founder of ‘Blue Origin’ and Amazon, is the second billionaire who went to space on his own rocket.
Richard Branson of ‘Virgin Galactic’ went to space nine days before Bezos. Blue Origin’s spacecraft reached an altitude of 66 miles (106 kilometers), 10 miles (16 kilometers) higher than Richard Branson reached in space on July 11.
