For the first time in 60 years of human spaceflight, no professional astronaut is aboard an orbit-bound rocket.
Four civilians have made history, after taking off on a fully-automated SpaceX mission without any professional space crew.
The 'Inspiration4' mission blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, a few minutes after 8pm local time on Wednesday (00:00 GMT Thursday).
