The crew of SpaceX’s first civilian mission posted a video of the ship’s transparent observation dome. It shows the first opening of the dome.
Earlier on September 19, 2021, SpaceX’s Inspiration4 mission successfully landed on Earth.
Inside the reusable Resilience capsule were Mission Commander Jared Isaacman, Medical Officer Hayley Arseno (youngest female astronaut), Mission Specialist Chris Sembroski, and Dr. Sian Proctor, a geologist. It is the first fully civilian crew without professional astronauts on board.
After the space tourists landed, they posted a video that they made in orbit, one of them has a toy alien:
Cool video from 🐉 cupola w/ xenomorph. In hindsight, it wasn’t worth the trouble of repacking the alien and probably took away from the video… but the view is pretty incredible and my kids will like the 👽

There is also a 360-degree view, Australia and typhoons were on the footage:

One of the mission’s goals was to collect data on the effects of radiation and other conditions in the extraterrestrial environment on newcomers to space exploration. And also to raise $200 million for the hospital: Jared Isaacman, an American billionaire and the fourth member of the mission, who paid for all the places on the ship, personally donated $100 million.
