SpaceX Inspiration4 mission shares first dazzling photos from orbit

The views from 360-miles above the Earth are quite spectacular when you orbit it.
SpaceX's Inspiration4, the first all-civil space flight, took off Wednesday evening from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The crew has completed over 15 orbits around the globe.

Following the launch, reports indicated that crew members were well-fed and were in good spirits. We all waited to see inside the Crew Dragon spacecraft. The crew finally released their first glimpse and it appears that they have been busy with their cameras.

The official Twitter account Inspiration4 shared four images from the flight on Thursday night. These included some amazing shots of the cupola, which is a transparent viewing dome that gives passengers a rare view of the Earth far below.

The Crew Dragon spacecraft can hold up to seven passengers, but Inspiration4 has four crew members: Jared Isaacman, founder of Shift4 Payments, is the commander; Hayley Arceneaux is the physician assistant; Christopher Sembroski is an Air Force veteran and aerospace data engineer; and Sian Proctor is the geoscientist.

They are expected to stay in orbit for three more days and complete a full orbit of Earth every 90 minutes.

Crew Dragon's spacecraft has been modified for this mission. The cupola that replaced the docking port on the ship is no longer needed as they are not stopping at any stations in space.

The Inspiration4 will reach the Florida coast soft water style at the end of their journey. Follow their journey here.

We're hoping to see more photos from those locations in the interim.
