The first all-private civilian orbital spaceflight, the SpaceX mission Inspiration4, spent nearly three days in space. The crew blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on September 15, 2021, and splashed down on September 18. In orbit aboard the Crew Dragon capsule Resilience, the four-person crew was circling the Earth every 90 minutes at over 17,000 mph.
