SpaceX to launch first all-civilian space mission in 2021

SpaceX will launch a Crew Dragon capsule into Earth's orbit with four private individuals on it, which will be the "world's first all-civilian mission," the company announced on Monday.

The exact date of the mission, dubbed Inspiration4, has yet to be determined, but Elon Musk's firm unveiled that it will likely take place in the first quarter of 2021.

Shift4 Payments, LLC CEO Jared Isaacman will be one of the crew members, the statement read, and added that Isaacman decided to donate the remaining three spots to figures chosen to represent "leadership, hope, generosity and prosperity."
