SpaceX will launch the first all-civilian crew into orbit tonight, with no professional astronauts.

For the first time, a group of four individuals will fly aboard a SpaceX mission scheduled to launch Wednesday night.

Jared Isaacman, the founder and wealthy CEO of Shift4 Payments, will lead the flight, which will also include Hayley Arceneaux, a physician assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Chris Sembroski, an aeronautical data engineer, and pilot and geoscientist Sian Proctor.

It’s the most recent move in space’s commercialization. The four-person crew will travel further into space by going into orbit than the recent privately funded Blue Origin flight, which included Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos.

It is unknown how much Isaacman paid to have himself and his team launched into space.

The Inspiration4 mission will aid Isaacman in his objective of raising $200 million to help cure children’s cancer. According to SpaceX, the crew will conduct research while in orbit “designed to advance human health on Earth and during future long-duration spaceflights,”

The launch will take place from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. Wednesday evening is the start of the five-hour launch window. Three days later, the astronauts will touch down off the coast of Florida.
