It marked the debut flight of SpaceX owner Elon Musk's new orbital tourism business. Isaacman paid an undisclosed sum to fellow billionaire Musk for the flight; Time magazine has put the ticket price for all four seats at $200 million. Rival companies Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc and Blue Origin inaugurated their own private-astronaut services this summer, but those suborbital flights lasted just minutes.The Inspiration4 crew has no part to play in flying the spacecraft, which is operated by ground-based flight teams and onboard guidance systems, even though two crew members are licensed pilots.Isaacman, who is rated to fly commercial and military jets, has assumed the role of mission "commander," while Proctor, a geoscientist and former NASA astronaut candidate, has been designated as the "pilot."The crew also brought the arts with them into space."Because we're trying to open the frontier for more people and open up space to more humans, or we're going to be bringing more of our humanities with us," Chris Sembroski said. "And so along with art and music, and so we have this custom ukulele that was made."Sembroski then serenaded the crew and audience with a quick melody.

France plunged into an unprecedented diplomatic crisis with the U.S. and Australia on Friday, after it pulled its ambassadors from both countries over a trilateral security deal between the two nations and Britain.The rare decision, made by French President Emmanuel Macron, came after Australia said it would scrap a $40 billion deal with French company Naval Group to build conventional submarines. Instead, it would build at least eight nuclear-powered submarines with U.S. and British technology.The new alliance - called AUKUS - is meant to strengthen security in the Indo-Pacific.France called it a stab in the back.THe U.S. and Australia said they regretted France's decision, and would work to resolve differences in the coming days. Earlier on Friday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison rejected criticism from France that it had not been warned about the new deal, saying he had raised the possibility in talks with Macron."These are matters that President Macron and I have discussed on many occasions." France so far has made no mention of pulling its ambassador in Britain, but a diplomatic source said France believed Britain joined the deal in an opportunistic manner.The strained ties among the long-time allies come as the U.S. and other countries seek additional support in Asia and the Pacific, given concern about the rising influence of a more assertive China.

'If he's forced by politics to reform, he deserves support.'
Martin Diky said he panicked as a huge wildfire started racing down a slope toward his wooden house near Lake Tahoe. The material that can withstand intensive heat for short periods resembles tin foil from the kitchen drawer but is modeled after the tent-like shelters that wildland firefighters use as a last resort to protect themselves when trapped by flames. Diky, who lives most of the time in the San Francisco Bay Area, bought $6,000 worth of wrapping from Firezat Inc. in San Diego, enough to cover his 1,400-square-foot (130-square-meter) second home on the edge of the small California community of Meyers.
