The first tourist trip in history, by four American beginners who have never orbited the Earth before, and will spend three days alone in orbiting the Earth, after undergoing training.
"Inspiration4", the first flight in history for beginners to orbit, not including any professional astronaut; They have five hours to complete takeoff in favorable weather for the time being.
The Falcon 9 rocket, carrying a Dragon capsule at its top, will launch from the legendary Launch Pad 39A, at NASA's Kennedy Center in Florida, from where the Apollo flights to the moon took off.
The four Americans on board the spacecraft are flying farther from the International Space Station, aiming for an orbit of 575 kilometers, and they will circle the world about 15 times a day.
At the end of their journey, they will begin to return to Earth and the craft will land off the coast of Florida, and its enormous speed will be reduced by parachutes.
