SpaceX tourists call Tom Cruise while orbiting earth


Four space travelers called American actor Tom Cruise while orbiting the Earth to discuss life onboard the spacecraft.

Cruise met with the crew members of SpaceX’s first privately chartered mission on Friday, according to representatives for the company. Cruise is planning to star in a movie shot in space.

“Maverick, you can be our wingman anytime,” the flight mission’s Twitter account wrote, referring to Cruise’s character in the film Top Gun.

The conversation was kept under wraps for the time being.

Last year, NASA said that it was in negotiations with Cruise about shooting a film on the International Space Station.

The space tourists are orbiting Earth at a height of 585 kilometers in the first space voyage without any qualified personnel.

The group, which includes two contest winners and a hospital worker, is led by billionaire Jared Isaacman, 38.

In a 10-minute live broadcast on Friday, crew members chatted with mission control.

Hayley Arceneaux, a 29-year-old physician assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, demonstrated her zero-gravity flipping skills.

Arceneaux, a childhood cancer survivor, had previously spoken with St. Jude’s pediatric cancer patients.

Chris Sembroski, a 42-year-old veteran of the United States Air Force, played his ukulele, while Sian Proctor, a 51-year-old community college teacher, displayed a drawing of SpaceX’s Dragon capsule.

The Inspiration4 flight took off on Wednesday and is scheduled to land in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida on Saturday.

SpaceX was founded by billionaire Elon Musk, who tweeted Thursday, “Missions like Inspiration4 help advance spaceflight to enable ultimately anyone to go to orbit & beyond.”
