Inspiration4 commander Jared Isaacman tweeted, “We have arrived at @NASAKennedy . . . it was a great morning of flying with my @inspiration4x crew. Right side is in! Standard. Expect more flights around KSC as we get closer to the big launch.”

Issacman is the billionaire responsible for the mission, and paid the way for the other three crewmembers. The billionaire is the founder of Shift4 payments. The mission will launch at 8 PM EDT on Tuesday, September 14.
