Four amateur astronauts flew into space on Wednesday from Florida, United States, on a private mission to stay in orbit.

The crew of Inspiration4, made up of a billionaire and three “common citizens,” took off from the Kennedy Space Center in a Dragon capsule from the rocket company SpaceX.

The quartet will spend the next three days orbiting the Earth.

This is another milestone in the space tourism market, which is experiencing a resurgence after a decade-long hiatus.
