The world's first SpaceX space tour conducted by civilians only was successfully completed on Saturday. Elon Musk's Dragon capsule named Resilience parachuted shortly past 7 pm ET.

The Inspiration4 team of four civilians spent three days in Earth's orbit, marking a debut of Musk's space tourism business that could become more accessible to people across the globe in the coming years.

The team was led by Shift4 Payments CEO Jared Isaacman who reportedly paid around $200 million to SpaceX, according to Time magazine.
