(SpaceX) on February 2, 2021 in Hawthorne, California. - Inspiration4 mission commander Jared Isaacman, founder and chief executive officer of Shift4 Payments all-civilian Inspiration4 mission will raise $200 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through a donation based sweepstakes to select a member of the crew.

After the successful space mission of the SpaceX Inspiration4 crew last month, mission commander and billionaire Isaacman shared another photo of the view from the first-ever all-civilian spaceflight.

Aside from achieving the milestone for being the first crew mission without any professional astronauts, Inspiration4 also carried out medical research studying humans during spaceflights.

It is worth noting that the all-civilian crew used Apple products, such as iPad, iPhone, and even Apple Watch to collect data for the health study.

The smart wearable was tasked to collect numerous data from the civilian space crew, including their blood oxygen level saturation, heart rate, and rhythm, movement, ECG activity, and sleep.

The billionaire went on to mention that he "loves the nosecone in the picture."

It is worth noting that Isaacman is not the only one from the all-civilian crew that took some time to photos and videos of the impressive views from outer space.

According to News18, one of the crews of Inspiration4, Arceneaux, also posted a 360-degree view of the Earth during their spaceflight, calling it "absolutely life-changing."

On top of that, Isaacman previously also shared a 17-second video featuring the view of Brazil from space during their first day in orbit. The billionaire and commander of the mission further noted that he took the stunning video from his iPhone.

However, he also said that images taken by his Nikon camera will also be out soon.

Aside from making history and conducting medical research, the space mission also raised $250 million to aid the ongoing study of childhood cancer in the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

The CEO and founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, capped out the fundraising after donating the remaining $50 million for the charitable project.
