SpaceX mission with unprofessional crew successfully completed
The SpaceX rocket with four crew members landed into the Atlantic during the night of Saturday to Sunday just after 1.00 hours as planned. This successfully completed the first space mission with purely non-professional astronauts on board.

Four large parachutes delayed the descent of the capsule before it landed in the water. Boats immediately set out to pick up the vessel.

"It was a great ride for us, and we're just getting started," tweeted 38-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman, who paid for the flight.

"Congratulations, Inspiration4", said SpaceX boss Elon Musk after the water landing on Twitter. Inspiration4 is the name given to this mission.

The spacecraft with four civilians on board departed from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the night of Wednesday to Thursday. Since then, the spaceship has orbited at a distance of up to 590 kilometers around the Earth at a speed of about 28,000 kilometers per hour. Every day, the crew saw 15 sunrises and sunsets.

The rocket was further away from the Earth's surface than the International Space Station, which orbits the Earth at a distance of 420 kilometres.
