SpaceX is gearing up to send an all-civilian flight into orbit

The universe is about to see another billionaire entrepreneur – one who is preparing to ride into space, bucked-up inside the capsule of a SpaceX rocketship.

It’s part of an astro-tourist team poised to make history as the first all-civilian crew launched into Earth orbit.

American founder and chief executive of ecommerce firm Shift4 Payments, Jared Isaacman is set to lead three fellow spaceflight novices on a trip expected to last three days from blast-off at Cape Canaveral, Florida, to splashdown in the Atlantic.

The 38-year-old technology king has plunked down an unspecified but presumably exorbitant sum to fellow billionaire and SpaceX owner Elon Musk to fly Isaacman and three specially selected travel mates into orbit aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule.

The crew vehicle is set for launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

Samsung has reported its lowest quarterly profit in eight years, dropping 69 per cent

The company believes sluggish demand and macroeconomic uncertainty will make for a tough first half, though demand will likely recover in the second half.
