SpaceX successfully launched four civilians into space on the evening of September 15, in a historic mission from Florida’s Kennedy Space Centre.
This footage, filmed across the Indian River in Titusville, Florida, shows the a bright light emanating from the launch, as the fully automated Crew Dragon spacecraft takes off.
According to the mission’s official website, Inspiration4 – the first spaceflight without a professional astronaut on board – is carrying an entrepreneur, a childhood cancer survivor and two sweepstake winners.
The flight is set to “make a low earth orbit” over three days before splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean. Credit: @natesdryerventcleaning321 via Storyful
