SpaceX is set to make history Wednesday evening, blasting an all-civilian crew into orbit for the first time.

The three-day 'Inspiration4' mission was chartered by billionaire Jared Isaacman, and will raise more than $200 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Isaacman will be joined by engineer Chris Sembroski, artist Sian Proctor, and cancer survivor Hayley Arceneaux, who at 29 years old will be the youngest person ever to travel to space.

The crew will blast off from Kennedy Space Center at 8:02pm EST and climb 360 miles into orbit - that's 100 miles farther than the International Space Station.
