SpaceX’s first private flight blasted off Wednesday night with two contest winners, a health care worker and their rich sponsor, the most ambitious leap yet in space tourism. It was the first time a rocket streaked toward orbit with an all-amateur crew — no professional astronauts.

Leading the flight is Jared Isaacman, 38, who made his fortune with a payment-processing company he started in his teens.
