SpaceX broadcast a live stream from orbit on Friday with the crew of the historic Inspiration4 mission giving an update on their second day in space.
The company noted that after the third day of crewing in orbit, it was targeting Saturday at 7:06 p.m. ET to hose down the Crew Dragon capsule Resilience.
Commander Jared Isaacman, pilot Sian Proctor, medical officer Hayley Arceneaux and mission specialist Chris Sembroski orbit the earth at an altitude of 585 kilometers (363.5 miles), which is the highest altitude that humans have traveled in years.
“We’re really proud to share this experience with everyone. We know how happy we are to be here,” said Isaacman from space.
Inspiration4 shared photos from the first day of the crew in orbit, which gave a first look at how the four passengers were doing and a glimpse of the expansive views of the earth from the spacecraft’s “dome” window.
SpaceX modified the top of the Crew Dragon Resilience capsule to add a massive window for the astronauts and to replace the docking hatch, located under the spacecraft’s nose cone, with the dome.

Inspiration4 was paid for by Isaacman for an undisclosed amount with the aerospace industry’s primary goal of raising $ 200 million for St. Jude.
