Florida: Space full of mysteries and wonders is no longer a tourist destination for man. The four astronauts aboard the SpaceX spacecraft have returned safely to mark the end of their historic journey. They return after spending three days in space. The parachute carrying the passengers landed in the Atlantic Ocean near Florida at 7.06pm local time on Saturday.
With the help of four giant parachutes, the Space X Dragon capsule touched the sea carrying the passengers. The waiting Space X boats carried the tourists. They were later taken to the Kennedy Space Center.
The mission was completed without even an astronaut. The group includes two men and two women, including billionaire Jared Isaacman. The women were identified as Hayley Arsenex, a 29 – year – old cancer survivor, and Cian Proctor, a 51 – year – old geoscientist. The fourth passenger was 42-year-old Chris Zembrowski, a former U.S. Air Force pilot and aerospace data engineer. ‘It was an amazing trip. This is just the beginning ‘- Jared Isaacman responded.
They traveled 575 km from Earth in space. Orbited the earth 15 times a day. The spacecraft was traveling faster than the International Space Station.

The spacecraft was successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center as part of the Inspiration 4 project. The spacecraft was launched by a Falcon 9 rocket.
The passengers were selected six months ago. This is the first phase of Elon Musk’s space tourism project. The total cost for all four is $ 200 million.
SpaceX is the world’s first private space company. The company has been experimenting with manned Mars exploration for years. In the future, a giant rocket is being built to carry humans and more than 100 tons of cargo to the moon. The September 16 test flight of the StarShip-built Starship was a partial success.
