Passengers aboard the world’s first all-civilian space flight have posted spectacular footage of the Earth from their trip.
SpaceX’s Inspiration4 touched back down to Earth safely last week after a three-day mission in space.
The incredible results of the Inspiration4 all-civilian crew have been shared on social media.
The crew included mission commander Jared Isaacman, who financed Insipiration4’s trip, Hayley Arceneaux, a physician assistant, aerospace data engineer and Air Force veteran Christopher Sembroski and Dr. Sian Proctor, a geoscientist.
Images and footage were captured through the spacecraft’s cupola hatch – a transparent dome that was specifically added in lieu of a docking hatch.
Each crew member was able to see the Earth from the hatch and captured footage from it.
Proctor captured the moment when the hatch was opened, and the crew members got their first glimpse at planet Earth.
Meanwhile, Isaacman posted footage of the stunning view of Earth which also featured a Xenomorph toy from the film Alien he’d brought on his journey.
Arceneaux posted a 360-degree view of Earth from space and called the experience “absolutely life changing”.
Sembroski captured stunning images of Australia’s vast country, as well as some amazing storm spiral clouds.
