Inspiration4 crew gears up for historic launch on Wednesday
BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Just one day before the Inspiration4 team prepares to make history, the crew of four held a briefing and talked about launch day activities, and took questions from the public.
The crew started the briefing by discussing some of the things they have done to prepare for Wednesday.
This week, they did a dry run of Wednesday's launch activities.
They spent many months and hours learning how to fly the Crew Dragon capsule and doing simulations like getting suited up and doing a 30-hour test inside the capsule.
