It's been a massive year for space travel. Firstly, we had not one, but TWO famous billionaires go to space and now, the first all-civilian crew of astronauts will blast off for a three day jaunt around Earth's orbit.
Inspiration4 is the latest project being run and it's a collaboration between Space X and billionaire tech guru Jared Isaacman. The crew of four feature Jared, a doctor and two people who have won their seats on board through competitions and sweepstakes.
