Inspiration4 astronaut Sian Proctor reflects on historic SpaceX spaceflight experience

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Sian Proctor, the pilot for SpaceX’s historic Inspiration4 mission, is on cloud 9 after returning from her epic three-day-long spaceflight. Joined by Jared Isaacman, Hayley Arcenauex, and Chris Sembroski, the quartet made up the crew for the first all-civilian human spaceflight mission, called Inspiration4

Proctor and the rest of the crew launched on Sept. 15 from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Strapped inside a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft, they blasted off atop a used Falcon 9 rocket on a flight that circled the Earth for three days before splashing down. She spoke with Space.com to talk about the mission and just how much fun flying in space really is.
