Elon Musk's SpaceX seeks next space milestone with launch this week

Elon Musk’s SpaceX is aiming to cement its position as a major space enterprise with a mission this week that seeks to get four civilians into orbit for several days and then return them to Earth.

According to industry executives and consultants, the Inspiration 4 flight, which could launch on Wednesday, is more ambitious and technically difficult than the one conducted over the summer by the space companies founded by Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson. SpaceX has said it is taking only commercial astronauts, or fliers without government support, into orbit for the first time.
