Inspiration4: Impressive shots of the Earth from space

Mission passengers Inspiration4 from Spacex have captured breathtaking panoramas of the Land From space.

From the mission’s Twitter account, space tourists are posting photos taken from an altitude of more than 500 kilometers, even higher than the International Space Station.

“When you look at the sky, you dream of being among the stars. When you are with the stars and you look down, you dream of being back in the Land”, Chris Sembroski stated, showing four great images of the planet.

We still have a lot to see

Jared Isaacman, mission commander, assures that the four members of Inspiration4 They have taken about 700 images from the dome of the Crew Dragon capsule, from where they orbited the planet for 3 days.

Orbiting at about 28,000 km / h, they circled the world more than 15 times a day.

Before the trip, the four trained for only about 6 months, while professional astronauts spend years preparing.

This mission ends a boreal summer marked by multimillionaire flights into space. The first was Richard Branson, on July 11, who took off aboard the Virgin Galactic spacecraft, and a few days later Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, with his company Blue Origin. But these flights only offered a few minutes of weightlessness.
