One small step for man, one big step for SpaceX. A space company of Elon Musk will send four crew on a three-day trip through Earth’s orbit. The mission, Inspiration4, it is the first time in history that “non-astronauts” are trained to survive in space.

The four crew will take off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. The scheduled time for the release is 9:02 pm Brasília time.

According to a press release, the latest US Space Force weather forecast predicts 70% chance of favorable conditions for takeoff at the launch complex. In case something happens, a window is available at the same time for the following day, on Thursday 16th.

The entire mission is funded by one of the participants, billionaire Jared Isaacman, as a way to raise funds for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, a charity hospital for children with cancer. The goal is 200 million dollars, but Isaacman has already donated more than half the amount.

To help raise funds, SpaceX even recorded a documentary series for the Netflix. “Inspiration4: Star Voyage” was released last Monday, the 13th, and shows behind the scenes of the space mission.
