On Wednesday, SpaceX launched another four astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA. This happened less than two days after completing a flight chartered by millionaires. The millionaires aboard paid $55M US each to travel to space.
NASA’s crew consists of 2 men and women, including the first black woman to make a long-term spaceflight, Jessica Watkins. Kathy Lueders, NASA’s space operations missions chief said “This is one of the most diversified, I think. Crews that we’ve had in a really, really long time,”
The astronauts arrived at the ISS Wednesday night, only 16 hours after the launch from Kennedy Space Center. So far, SpaceX has launched five crews for NASA and two private trips in just under two years. The company has had an especially busy week after finishing the trip with three businessmen.
