Elon Musk's company SpaceX has been cleared to launch its first all-civilian crew into outer space next week.
The mission is called Inspiration-four, and it's scheduled to launch on September 15th from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The crew will be inside the Crew Dragon spacecraft, launched on SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket.
The mission is commanded by 38-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman, who is an accomplished pilot.
He's not said how much he paid for the flight, but he's donated a hundred million dollars to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
