Being in the past, people were watching the sky and wondering what was beyond it. Although technology has improved dramatically over time, space travel has remained relatively underdeveloped. By the beginning of the 21st century, space travel was a complex and costly affair. And it was completely ruled by the governments of different countries. The world needed a new concept to overcome this situation. One man had a dream to change all this. The man was named Elon Musk and his dream was SpaceX
SpaceX, or Space Exploration Technology Corporation, was founded by Elon Musk in 2002 with the goal of creating the technology needed to reduce space travel and the settlement of Mars. Elon Musk’s vision was to create relatively low-cost rockets and make space travel as easy as an existing airline. It is a technology that can transport cargo or passengers into space and re-land them on Earth and reuse them.
In the early 2000s, Elon Musk joined a Russian space program and worked on his dream. Unfortunately, it failed. Later, Elon Musk believed that Russia or anyone else needed help to overcome his dream and that rocket production had to be carried out in a new way. Since no one was interested in private space travel, Elon Musk had to do all the work on his own and pay the expenses with his own personal wealth. Finally, Elon Musk was able to produce a rocket at very low cost.
What is so special about SpaceX?
Elon Musk used the least expensive methods. For example, the cost of a one-time aerial rocket manufactured at NASA is estimated to be between $ 100 and $ 260 million. But SpaceX’s Falcon 9 reusable rocket cost $ 57 million. Also, NASA’s rocket will burn $ 200 million to fly, while SpaceX’s one flight will cost $ 200,000. When SpaceX was founded, Elon Musk was working on rocket science, such as software engineering and business, but he also studied rocket science by reading books.
What are the future goals of SpaceX?
Elon Musk’s main goal is to make space travel extremely easy and cost effective. In 2015, SpaceX launched 4000 satellites and launched a worldwide Internet service. Elon Musk’s long-term vision is to settle on Mars. He is expected to be transported to Mars by 2030.
This is the story of SpaceX. It is amazing to see one man and his idea make a big difference in the most complex industry in the world. Finally a reminder. The reason why SpaceX succeeded was not Elon Musk’s extraordinary intellectualism or his intense dedication. The main thing is Elon Musk’s reluctance to accept defeat and his perseverance.
