It’s a glass dome with a view.

When SpaceX launches four civilian astronauts on the private Inspiration4 spaceflight, they’re going to have the ultimate window: a glass dome offering panoramic views of Earth from space.

While SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft for the mission is already equipped with flat windows, the Inspiration4 mission — which is set to launch later this year with billionaire Jared Isaacman, who chartered the flight with SpaceX, commanding the crew — will include a unique domed window, allowing crew members to get a 360-degree view of their surroundings. That new window, and the Inspiration4 mission’s full crew, were announced in a press conference today (March 30).
