SpaceX's Latest Crew Mission Is Unlike Any Other

    Hours from now, SpaceX will launch a crew of 4 people into space for a unique mission, a flight that's not part of NASA or any other space agency. Inspiration 4 will take Jared, Hayley, Sian and Chris into orbit for 3 days for a free flight, higher than the International Space Station, in a modified capsule with the largest window ever flown in space.

    Countdown: Inspiration 4 Documentary exclusively on Netflix

I'm a gnarly old guy but the documentary got me unexpectedly teary at times! It surfaced how these normal people may not return and how their families reacted to that tough thought, it's easy to play an alpha jock but crew were like the rest of us. If Hayley's prosthetic failed on the mountain then she wasn't going and the crew would lose a trained key ,it was a great documentary. I was really gutted and moved by Chris's wife's reaction on top of the launch stack when it suddenly hit her really hard the die was cast. Brilliant!

I’m currently in the USMC. I get out in 8 months. I will be transitioning to the Air Force/Space Force and work in Space System Operations, while also going to college for Aerospace Engineering. Really exited that I’ll be able to work on satellites, and space launches for the military, while also getting my degree. The big plan is to work for one of the best aerospace companies out there. Future looks bright. Oh, and I’m 26, so for anyone who thinks they’re too old to go to college, view me as an example. Haven’t been to school in over 9 years. It’s never too late

That launch went by with barely any notice by the media at all, and the coverage once they were up there was terrible, not even SpaceX showed or said much while they were there. Most people don't even know or care that it happened.

So what was the actual purpose of this space flight? Civilians in space? Already done; tourists paying their own way through Russian Space Federation to the ISS. All civilian crew? The mission commander is a quailed jet pilot and the entire flight was run by computer program, like all unmanned satellite launches and all previous SpaceX flights. For science? What kind of new science regarding human space flight can these 4 people do in that cramped capsule over 3 days that NASA hasn’t already done in 133 successful space shuttle missions and 20+ years of the International Space Station? Playing a ukulele while in orbit? See Commander Hadfield's rendition of Space Oddity while on the ISS. If the entire purpose was a publicity event to inspire “space tourism” and build the SpaceX brand, why not just say so? Everything else seemed to be a thinly veiled attempt to cover up the fact that it was just a publicity event, legitimized by being part of a fund-raising program (which was deemed a success only after Elon Musk, owner of the Inspiration 4 mission, coughed up $50M at the last moment). Cool mission, great images, certainly inspiring, but ultimately being sold as something it was not.

Ok Scott, this finally popped up on my home page. While watching the launch, reading about the mission, etc... Only one thing really freaked me out about the "dome". I said too myself when I thought it, "I need to ask Scott about this and see if he has any idea". The dome is awesome, and obviously everything worked well, which is great. However, removing the docking adapter blew my mind in the case of an emergency scenario. Follow me if you will, there's a problem that prevents re-entry, or delays the time, or, etc... With the docking adapter in place, a valid option would be to lower the orbit and dock with the space station to get resolution. Without it? Even though there is antire lab in space that they could get too, doesn't matter, no way too dock. Am I missing something here? Great observation window, amazing but? If this is the norm, and your in orbit, out of our atmospheric envelope, well if anything goes wrong? Anyway, thanks for the video, as always great stuff Mr. Manley.

Scott, would be fascinated to see a video explaining how the SpaceX Dragon was able so easily to move from that initial orbit about 200km out to its eventual orbit +500km out, and that with the second stage already jettisoned. What is the risk of losing the spacecraft to deep space during such a manoeuvre?

Wonder if SpaceX is thinking about having a cadre of Dragon pilots? Why train new pilots for each flight, be like the airlines do. That way Dragon passengers all they have to do is make sure their seat back and tray is in the upright and stowed position.

Scott, so when are *you* going into space? You're in fact a space nerd celebrity and have reported so much extremely well researched scientific and technical information about SpaceX that they ought to consider you! I do not want to diminish Everyday Astronaut's contribution to scientific education, but you do it without, let's be frank, a sensationalisation of the information that he does not always manage to avoid. But you never cross the line. You do not try to be entertaining, and this makes you the most scientific of all educators working on all space exploration topics that I know of. I hope so much that you fly one day and look at us from high above. That would be so well-deserved of you! Fly safe!

@Scott Manley , I've just watched the video; it sounded "twelve or thirteen hours" to my ears. "Twelve or thirty" would not make sense linguistically; it would need to have been twelve and thirty, but the 12-hour simulation training is not that important when they underwent 30-hour so-called "end to end" simulation (although it included sleeping in the capsule). People should watch the interviews, they were quite good.

I know, some people here will hate to hear this, but it´s "missions" like these, that make it hard for me to justify my enthusiasm for space exploration in front of "normal" people. I for once wont cheer for those who literally ascent into the heavens while the rest of us toils away on a quite as literally burning world. IMHO space flight should be a concerted effort of society with the goal of serving all of mankind, not vanity or profit projects for the priviged. I am all in for the former, but am disgusted by the later. When the "the billions should be spent on feeding the hungry" comes from "anti-spacies", i still have no issue standing by, say, the Apollo program or the Mars probes - but this? Yeah, that money SHOULD be spent on feeding the hungry, first, cause it happens just for the lulz. Yeah, making a show about it will probably foster support for space flight, but for all the wrong reasons. It´s like getting attention, Kinski style.
