SpaceX’s Inspiration4 is scheduled to launch at 8:02 pm Eastern Time on September 15 (5:32 am on September 16th, US Standard Time). Netflix will broadcast the takeoff of the all-civilian mission from 7pm EST (4:30 a.m. IST September 16th). The live broadcast will be broadcast through Netflix’s YouTube channel. SpaceX will carry four people aboard its spacecraft and will orbit the Earth during a three-day mission. Netflix has a special documentary series called Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission to Space, dedicated to reporting on the first universal space flight.
As mentioned earlier, Netflix has reported on SpaceX’s civilian orbital flight through a special documentary series that follows the crew to prepare for launch into space. Now, the streaming platform will live broadcast the launch of the Falcon 9 spacecraft through its YouTube channel. The live broadcast will be hosted by Queer Eye star Caramo Brown and Soledad O’Brien of Fact Matter, as well as astronauts and celebrity guests. The spacecraft will take off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. Interested viewers can also watch the live broadcast below:

Chris Sembroski is the third passenger on the ship. He is a data engineer and a U.S. Air Force veteran. The last passenger on board was Dr. Sian Proctor, an earth scientist and science communication expert.
