SpaceX has launched its first ever all-civilian flight into Earth's orbit.
The Inspiration4 rocket successfully took off at 8:02 pm local time at the Kennedy Space Center.
The crew onboard will travel the farthest any civilian has traveled from Earth and will reach a maximum distance of 360 miles above the Earth.
That's more than 120 miles higher than the the International Space Station, which orbits at 240 miles.
This trumps the recent efforts from Virgin's Richard Branson and Amazon's Jeff Bezos.
