El primer vuelo espacial privado de SpaceX despegó el miércoles por la noche con dos ganadores de un concurso, a una trabajadora del sector salud y a su rico patrocinador, en el salto más ambicioso hasta ahora en el turismo espacial.

Es la primera vez que un cohete se dirige a la órbita con una tripulación carente de astronautas profesionales.

Los dos hombres y las dos mujeres a bordo de la cápsula Dragon pretenden pasar tres días dando la vuelta al mundo desde una órbita inusualmente alta, 160 kilómetros más alta que la de la Estación Espacial Internacional, y luego acuatizar en el mar cerca de las costas de Florida este fin de semana.

Al frente del vuelo está Jared Isaacman, de 38 años, quien hizo su fortuna con una empresa de procesamiento de pagos que creó en su adolescencia.

El viaje representa la entrada del fundador de SpaceX, Elon Musk, en la competencia por los dólares del turismo espacial. Isaacman es el tercer multimillonario que se lanza al espacio este verano, tras los breves vuelos de Richard Branson de Virgin Galactic y Jeff Bezos de Blue Origin en julio.
