A historic mission by the American company SpaceX ended successfully on Saturday, with the safe return of four tourists who became the first all-civilian crew to orbit the Earth.
After three days in orbit on board a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, they splashed down off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida in the Atlantic Ocean.
Billionaire Jared Isaacman, who paid for all four seats on the trip and commanded the capsule, showed that private space travel is now a reality.
SpaceX hopes that this mission will build up a new line of business of commercial trips to the stars.
