The crew of #Inspiration4 had an incredible first day in space! They’ve completed more than 15 orbits around planet Earth since liftoff and made full use of the Dragon cupola.

True to their mission, the #Inspiration4 crew answered questions from @StJude patients (and future astronauts) today from space💙
This just in from @inspiration4x Mission Control. We can confirm that St. Jude patients got to speak with the crew live this afternoon, asking the questions we all want to know like "are there cows on the moon?" Standby and follow us for more. 🐄🌙

The @Inspiration4x crew is healthy, happy, and resting comfortably. Before the crew went to bed, they traveled 5.5 times around Earth, completed their first round of scientific research, and enjoyed a couple of meals
