The first all-civilian crew set to launch into orbit has arrived at Launch Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center and is boarding their capsule. 

The launch window opens at 8:02 pm ET.  

This mission, dubbed Inspiration4, is the first orbital mission in the history of spaceflight to be staffed entirely by tourists or otherwise non-astronauts. 

The crew includes 38-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman, who personally financed the trip, Hayley Arceneux, 29, a childhood cancer survivor and current St. Jude physician assistant, Sian Proctor, 51, a geologist and community college teacher with a PhD, and Chris Sembroski, a 42-year-old Lockheed Martin employee and lifelong space fan who claimed his seat through an online raffle.
