SpaceX's Inspiration4 Crew Blasts Off Into Orbit

Elon Musk's space company made history again on Wednesday with the launch of its first all-civilian crew mission into orbit. The four-person team will spend the next three days circling the planet and conducting experiments before landing back on Earth. Dubbed Inspiration4, this trek is designed to help raise funds for St. Jude's Children's Hospital and some of the items that accompanied the astronauts will be auctioned upon their return. Here's what happened on launch day.
