No launch day jitters for SpaceX’s civilian Inspiration4 astronauts


The four civilian crewmembers of SpaceX’s private Inspiration4 mission launching into space today are spending their last few hours on Earth without preflight jitters or fear.

Speaking in a news conference yesterday, all four participants agreed that they were more excited than nervous for their launch on a SpaceX rocket and Dragon spacecraft tonight (Sept. 15).  Liftoff is set for 8:02 p.m. EDT (0002 GMT) and you can watch it live here, courtesy of SpaceX, beginning at 3:45 p.m. EDT (1945 GMT).
