After several months of planning, SpaceX has finally completed the world’s first-ever tourist trip to space. The four-person crew touched down around 7.06 pm ET on the coast of Florida. They described the experience as a unique one as they spent three days orbiting the Earth on their Dragon Spaceship.
All four members of this tour group are amateur spacefarers that included billionaire Jared Isaacman, a successful businessman, Geoscientist Dr. Sian Proctor who is also a science communicator, Physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux; and Chris Semboski, an Engineer. None of them have any pedigree as an astronaut, but all completed their space tour. Isaac man was the man who shattered the flight and then proceeded to give away three seats to three people through a raffle draw.
The four-man flew over 367 miles away from the planet. This is more than there has ever been recorded in the history of the space shuttle. They had a lovely time and then took an ultrasonic scan of all their organs for research purposes. The crew started the plummet down to earth using the Dragon ship’s thrusters.
The vessel has tiles that protect its occupants from over 3500 degrees Fahrenheit heat caused by friction. The capsule then began its descent to earth and released its parachute with a few miles to reach the planet. The capsule landed in the Atlantic Ocean with a massive bob and soot. The capsule is known as Resilience and has been used for previous space travel for Space X.
Recovery crews swamped the scene to recover the vessels and the crew members on impact. This successful trip to space is considered a breakthrough to future tourist travels to space. It will open a new era where people can visit space and go back to earth.
Unsurprisingly, spaced has started preparing for another tourist trip to space lined up for January. The plan is to carry customers in their Dragon ship for an eight-day trip to Space. This travel has already been named AX-1.
This will surely be a revolution for the space tourism industry, and there’s hope for new technologies that will take space travel to whole new heights.
