For the first time, an all-civilian crew has been launched into space.

SpaceX's first private flight streaked into orbit Wednesday night with two contest winners, a health care worker and their rich sponsor.

The two men and two women in the Dragon capsule are looking to spend three days circling the world from an unusually high orbit, 160 kilometers higher than the International Space Station, before splashing down off the Florida coast this weekend.

The launch is SpaceX founder Elon Musk’s first entry in the competition for space tourism dollars.

Isaacman is the third billionaire to travel to space this summer, following the brief space-skimming flights by Virgin Galactic`s Richard Branson and Blue Origin`s Jeff Bezos in July.
