Inspiration4 | In-Flight Update with the Crew
Join us for the first live, on-orbit update from the Inspiration4 crew – the world’s first all-civilian human spaceflight to orbit!
The Inspiration4 mission is part of Jared’s ambitious fundraising goal to give hope to all kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Visit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to learn how you can help the Inspiration4 crew reach their $200M fundraising goal.
During their multi-day journey in orbit, the Inspiration4 crew will conduct scientific research designed to advance human health on Earth and for future long-duration spaceflights.

really exited for the day I get to see a stream like this from inside a starship!
@T.J. Thunder With CRISPR Cas-9 it’s not entirely impossible that you could live to see your life extended maybe indefinitely, so if I where you, and I’m getting close (38), I wouldn’t resign myself to anything quite yet. We might not just live to see the Moon and Mars colonized, we could live to see them prosper, to go there on vacation one day, maybe even see humanity venture beyond our own solar system. Living to be a two hundred, a thousand, or more, is quickly becoming a real possibility within our grasp. It’s a strange new aeon.
@Waker of Winds Very Interesting concept of how fast technology is evolving to bring costs down. We also must consider why it’s evolving as a “for profit” commercial industry. I believe in our lifetime we will see mining jobs in space either from platforms on the moon or asteroids. There are potentially unimaginable profits to be made from rare raw materials : metals such as gold, platinum and many others mined from space. Bases in space, on the Moon and Mars will be needed to support these efforts. Private industry will lead the way in small incremental steps and inventing ways to solve the big problems of living and working in the most dangerous of environments. We are at the forefront of a explosion of new science breakthroughs in health, safety, energy and propulsion. All of it will benefit mankind here on earth!
EL ON Is God. Mars= Future Earth. Tesla and BTC= Future KING. The Rest and Their Family will be our SLa ves who Work till Dead to supply energy for Bit coin!!. G-AY BIT-CHes Hate Bitcoin just because it use more Energy like Argentine. BUT Space X AND TESLA all Have Bitcoin. KING ELon Himself has both Bitcoin and Ethereum. ELon = Ironman who will Crush Tha nos and critics Should use their cash to wipe their Huge A.n u.s.. Just don t do G.AY things like environment. Tesla and Bit coin all the way!! Vir.gin Haters Forever Sad and Broke. Cathie Says BTC will go 500,000! 💲💵🤑💸 Get TSLA and BTC while they are very low. Let’s Go. We will beat Haters
@Zombie D Man, you must be fun at parties
@David The temperature isn’t the point. If you can’t do it on earth, you sure as hell ain’t gonna do it on Mars. Antarctica has supplies coming in regularly…they are not independent or self sustaining. They don’t have to make fuel or food or oxygen.
I’ve heard the theory, I don’t live under a rock.
So they’re going to get this vertical water flow from……? All those lakes on Mars? Plants use a LOT of water. People use a LOT of water.
Send a robot over, let’s see it start making a lake. You’re going to need a lake.
“Sorry can’t talk, orbiting the Earth”
@R Long the flat earthers live in there own world they cant help it that they are stupid
@Sumrise no you are orbiting the earth
While the earth is orbiting the sun
@R Long hi
U mean like everyone is ???
I am so happy for these guys, what an absolute treasure of an experience.
Yes I am more than envious.
They’re having so much fun, so nice to watch adults feel like children again
@Just Some Guy With A French Mustache You are the REAL CRINGE.
Damn you are right…
@Just Some Guy With A French Mustache melt
And here I am, 35 years old, having a huuuuuge smile from ear to ear and tears in my eyes, like an innocent child, just watching these incredible people and what they represent 🙂 What a time to be alive! Congrats Spacex and Inspiration4 team, you guys are the best!
I am sixty years old and have the same reaction…glad to be alive to see this…..
Poor guy. Literally you are so poor you should be ashamed of yourself while rich people are going to space.
Wtf? I hate “i fecking love science” types. I bet you are a test subject too.
Yeah… me too I’m feeling that
U do realise that its a billionaire pr stunt right
I absolutely loved the new official sounding titles that the crew now have after a year of training. A miracle transformation!
I was 4 years old when Armstrong landed on the moon. What a privilege to live long enough to see regular folks go into orbit. Wouldn’t mind heading out there myself one day….
@R Long You are a liar.
@R Long are you a flat earther? Coz thats really a dumb thing to say. Go n research again.
Well, some say those landings were all filmed on a stage set in Area 51, this SpaceX production is much more realistic. It is a welcome distraction during the Pandemic.
@Jonathan F and another one…
@R Long this may help https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLybg94GvOJ9GEuq4mp9ruJpj-rjKQ_a6Ethe
Took me a while to warm up to this mission, but Haley is now one of my favorite astronauts now! 🙂 Pure joy. Let’s get her some boots for the moon… seriously.
Jared stands head and shoulders above the other recent billionaire adventurers. This has not been a showcase of ego. He has fully shared the spotlight with his crew of remarkable but regular people and made this flight a symbol of good and a beacon for philanthropy. Kudos!
@Susana Hollenback Untrue. While each US military branch has its own version of astronaut wings, “astronaut” is not a military position. Even some Apollo astronauts were civilians- Neil Armstrong, for instance. (Neil had civilian/NASA astronaut wings until the Navy presented him with honorary navy astronaut wings in 2010)
I agree that the sub orbital thrill rides (Virgin and BO) no more deserve astronaut wings than a roller coaster passenger.
However, with Inspiration 4, nothing happened that wouldn’t have happened if NASA bought the flight instead of Jared Isaacman. After Hurley and Behnken’s test flight, the launch and on-orbit flight operations are just the same for these Astronauts as they would have been for NASA astronauts. It’s 2021 – the nature of the beast has changed. It’s quite possible civilian astronauts could beat NASA (or China or Russia) back to the moon…
@M Wa they are doing science BTW, testing blood sugar levels, checking retina, using the equipment that interfaces with medical equipment for use on phones (specifically iPhones) so are they astronauts then?
Dipping your toes in the water isn’t swimming
@KryptixFaMe Nope, but swimming in water certainly is swimming. BO and Virgin: dipping. Orbital flight: quite a swim. Many NASA astronauts (including some famous ones) only “dipped their toes” into space once.
@Daniel “Clearly SpaceX has handled it way better than the others though.”
“One of the key things was probably that they kept Elon almost entirely out of it,”
I mean, it’s not hard to keep Elon out of it, because it really isn’t about him.
The fundamental problem Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic have is that neither company had achieved nothing major yet, and then they both made “putting their founder in a sub-orbital flight” into their first (and for now still only) achievement.
By contrast, SpaceX had done more than 100 orbital flights, 3 of them with astronauts already, before this Inspiration 4 came along. Heck, Inspiration 4 isn’t even their flagship project, just an offshoot of their major successes.
Wow. Seeing art and music in space is truly a surreal moment. Didn’t know how inspiring it would be until you see it
They are all so multitalented! What an adventure! I’m glad that I’ve lived long enough (75 years) to see this. I’ve always fantasized about space travel — we keep getting closer every day!
@C.I.A. im only 6, and I feel the same way!
Make sure u are a billionaire
@dodie b why would we care you are asian ?
@C.I.A. joking right ? people have instagram and being rich fantasies probably 0.1% of people think of space travel
@Chris723 sure, nobody cares about my dream, that’s fine . No body likes you and your attitude
