Fresh photos of the Earth from the Crew Dragon capsule appeared on the network
On September 16, SpaceX successfully launched the Crew Dragon as part of the Inspiration4 mission, which sent a civilian crew into space unaccompanied by professional astronauts. The flight lasted for three days, after which the team successfully returned to Earth. During this time, space tourists managed to capture the planet at a distance of 575 km. The images have already appeared on the web.





The standard Crew Dragon capsule has a docking connector in the bow required for docking with the ISS. Since this time the device did not need it, the connector was removed, and a large transparent dome was installed in its place. It was he who allowed the crew to enjoy the magnificent view of the Earth from space.

During the flight, the tourists were exposed to a higher radiation effect than the astronauts on the ISS or at the Chinese Tiangong station. Therefore, doctors had to carefully monitor the condition of the team members. Also, this expedition will help assess the impact of congestion and space travel on an unprepared person.
