Elon Musk’s SpaceX Launches First Ever All-Civilian Flight to Orbit

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has launched the first-ever All-Civilian Flight to orbit on early Thursday morning.

The three-day expedition is the first mission to space without any professional astronauts on board.

The mission is aiming for a maximum orbital altitude of 360 miles above Earth, higher than the International Space Station or Hubble Space Telescope, according to SpaceX.

 

The Crew Dragon capsule will spend three days circling Earth before re-entering the atmosphere and splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Florida, according to SpaceX.
