SpaceX's Inspiration4 Rocket Lights Up Night Sky Over South Carolina

SpaceX successfully launched four civilians into space on the evening of September 15, in a historic mission from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.

The mission – the world’s first all-civilian human spaceflight to orbit – is scheduled to take three days before the craft will splash down into waters off Florida, according to SpaceX.
