A new video released by Space X shows the Inspiration4 crew revealing their extraordinary view of Earth, as seen through a domed window on their Crew Dragon spacecraft.
The 90-second video was posted on the Inspiration4 YouTube channel after it was filmed by crew member Sian Proctor during the mission, who landed safely back on Earth on Saturday (September 18th).
The video shows crew members Chris Sembroski and Jared Isaacman (the billionaire who booked and commanded the SpaceX mission) slowly removing the lid from the dome. In the foreground, Hayley Arceneaux gets some equipment ready before looking out the window in awe, along with the other crew members.
During their short flight, the team reached an orbital altitude of approximately 364 miles above the planet’s surface.
This is the highest achieved since STS-103, a Hubble space telescope it served in 1999, and the fifth highest human space flight on Earth overall.
