On the official Inspiration4 website, there are many details connected to the first all-civilian orbital mission. All the data and research conducted during the mission will help scientists to understand our universe better. It is a great accomplishment for the four lucky crew members considering that less than 600 people have flown into space. Flying into space might become a dream come true for many civilians in the near future.
