After a three-day trip to Earth… Breaking through the frictional heat of the atmosphere at 1,900 degrees and landing in the Atlantic Ocean
Every day, I travel around the world 15 times to eat pizza and pasta… Charity fundraising, science experiment
(Los Angeles = Yonhap News) Correspondent Yoon-seop Jeong = Four civilians who went to orbit the Earth aboard the SpaceX spacecraft, an American space exploration company, returned safely to Earth after a three-day trip.
SpaceX space tourists set off on the Atlantic Ocean near Florida on the 18th (local time) just past 7 pm eastern time.
“The four space tourists safely completed their pioneering orbital journey,” the Associated Press reported.
The space tourists who have returned to Earth are billionaire Jared Isaacman (38), nurse Haley Arseno (29), university science lecturer Sian Procter (51), and Iraq War veteran Chris Sembrosky (42).
They flew aboard the SpaceX ‘Crew Dragon’ spacecraft on the night of the 15th.
Arriving at a point 160 km higher than the International Space Station (ISS), they orbited the Earth more than 15 times every day for three days.
Initially, the target altitude was 575 km, but in reality, it reached the point of 585 km.
It is the farthest point in space that has been reached by humans since NASA’s Apollo program, which ended in 1972.
Tourists took group photos inside the automatically controlled spacecraft, listened to songs provided by the world’s largest music company Spotify, or enjoyed the trip while eating pizza, sandwiches, pasta and lamb.
He communicated with star actor Tom Cruise, who was thinking of shooting a movie on the space station, and shared his space experience, and just before returning to Earth, Sembrowski was seen watching the sci-fi comedy movie ‘Space Ball’ in the spaceship.
They also raised charities to help American children’s hospitals and children’s patients, and conducted several scientific experiments to observe the impact of the space environment on amateur travelers.
After completing the three-day itinerary, they boarded the ‘Crew Dragon’ and descended back to Earth.
The spacecraft was revealed this afternoon by safely passing through the atmosphere generating frictional heat at 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1,927 degrees Celsius).
As it approached the starting point, the spacecraft deployed its parachute to slow its descent to 24 km/h, and soon succeeded in ‘splashing down’.
SpaceX broadcast live on YouTube about the return of space tourists.
The SpaceX mission control team cheered, “Your mission showed the world that space is a place for all of us,” said Isaacman, “and it was a great ride for us.”
SpaceX, which successfully completed its first space tour, is planning to launch a tour ship up to six times a year from now on. Four reservations have already been made for the space tour of the course, which transports paying customers to the space station.
