Timelapse Footage Shows Launch of SpaceX's All-Civilian Mission

SpaceX successfully launched what it said was the world’s first all-civilian spaceflight to orbit from Florida’s Kennedy Space Centre on the evening of September 15. The mission, Inspiration4, has an all-civilian crew of four, SpaceX said, who were launched aboard a Crew Dragon spacecraft by a Falcon 9 rocket. The crew will splash down off Florida after a three-day journey, the company said.
