All the civilian Inspiration4 crews of SpaceX, after performing a groundbreaking mission from Cape Canaveral the night before, conducted scientific research on orbit and talked with children at the Pediatric Cancer Hospital. They spent the first day on the orbit.
St. Jude Tweet Its patients had to talk to four U.S. space tourists, “ask questions we all want to know, such as’Are there cows on the moon?'”
The charter billionaire Jared Isaacman is trying to raise US$200 million (approximately Rs 14.7 billion) for the research facility.
Inspiration4 is the first orbital space flight for ordinary citizens.
Earlier, Elon Musk’s company said on Twitter that the four people were “healthy” and “happy” and had completed their first round of scientific research and enjoyed several meals.

Musk himself Tweet He personally talked to the crew, “Everything is fine”.
By now, they should also be able to stare out from the dome of the Dragon spacecraft-this is the largest space window in history. It was installed on the ship for the first time and replaced the usual docking mechanism.
Most people are in space
The Inspiration4 mission also brought the total number of humans currently in space to 14-a new record. In 2009, there were 13 people on the International Space Station (ISS).
There are currently seven people on the International Space Station, including two Russian astronauts and three Chinese astronauts. They took the Shenzhou XII spacecraft. The crew of the spacecraft returned home after spending 90 days at the Tiangong space station.
Isaacman, physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux, geoscientist Sian Proctor, and aerospace data engineer Chris Sembroski are orbiting the earth at an altitude of sometimes 590 kilometers (367 miles).
This is deeper than the International Space Station, which has an orbit of 420 kilometers (260 miles), the longest distance humans have ventured since the Hubble Telescope maintenance mission in 2009.
Their boat travels at approximately 17,500 mph (28,000 km/h), and they will experience approximately 15 sunrises and sunsets per day.
Due to a phenomenon called “relative speed time dilation”, their high speed means that the time they experience is slightly slower than that of people on the surface.
In addition to raising funds for charity, the mission also aims to study the biological effects of deep space on the bodies of astronauts.
“Mission like Inspiration4 helps advance space flight, ultimately enabling anyone to get into orbit and beyond,” Musk added in a tweet.
The space adventure ended a summer when billionaire Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos competed for the final frontier.
But these flights only provided a few minutes of weightlessness—not the full three days of orbital flight that Inspiration4 crews would experience before splashing off the Florida coast on Saturday.
