A SpaceX rocket soared into orbit Wednesday night, September 15, carrying four people none of whom are professional astronauts, in the first-ever mission to Earth's orbit with crew entirely made up of tourists.






The team of tourists include a billionaire who funded the mission, a cancer survivor, a community college teacher and a Lockheed Martin employee.



The launch pad was located at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
