The crew of the SpaceX Inspiration4 space flight which is the first astronaut crew where everyone is a civilian started a live stream in which they talked about their experiences. 


The broadcast was 10 minutes long and the four members took part in a show and tell session as their SpaceX’s Dragon spaceship flew above Europe at a speed of over 28 thousand km/h.

The four crewmen are the American billionaire Jared Isaacman, the geology professor Sian Proctor, Jude Children’s Research Hospital physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux, and the data engineer and Air Force veteran Cristopher Sembroski. 

During the broadcast, Sembroski played on a ukulele. 

Hayley Arceneaux suffered from bone cancer but she survived it and now is even fit to launch into space. 

"Hayley is a champ at spinning. She's been spinning from the moment we got in orbit," Proctor said.

During the live stream, she and Isaacman talked about some of the biological experiments on the Inspiration4 crew mission.

 

The crew also showed the audience the view from the cupola window of the spacecraft. 

 

The flight was reportedly sponsored by billionaire Jared Isaacman who paid around $200 million for the flight to become a reality.

The crew is expected to soon arrive back on earth.
