We all once in our life had a thought of going somewhere in space and exploring them but not all are possible to reach out but some do. Today we are going to talk about the person who is bringing our imagination and reality together, the man who thinks out of this world, yes! Really outside the world about the space, the man is none other than Elon Musk.

History of SpaceX

In 2001, Musk became involved with the nonprofit Mars society, he was inspired by the plans to build a growth chamber for plants on mars and started investing on those ideas. He later in Moscow with Jim Cantrell and Mike Griffin buy refurbished intercontinental ballistic missiles [ICBMs] that could send the greenhouse pay holds into space. He then met with NPO Lavochkin and Kosmotras , however , musk was seen as a novice and even spat on by one of the Russian chief designer.

He later came back to Russia to look for three ICBMs. They had a meeting with kosmotras and were offered $8 million for one rocket, musk rejected that offered and instead of that founded his own space company known as SpaceX. This shows that Musk ideas and his believes to his own idea made him todays star.


SpaceX Slogs

SpaceX attempted its first launch of the falcon 1 rocket in 2006, although the rocket failed even to reach the earth’s orbit but was awarded a Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program contract from NASA. SpaceX had to face back to back failures which gave many nightmares to Musk. In 2008, spacex Falcon 1 was the first one to be private liquid fuel rocket to do so. Later that year SpaceX received a 1.8 billion dollar contract from NASA, this gave the birth to Space x. This teaches us that believing in inner us more important than any other thing.

In 2017, Space x unveiled its next generation launch vehicle and space craft system known as Starship. SpaceX announced in 2018 that, they will start circumnavigation mission in 2023 and the project name is Dearmoon project. In 2020, Space X launched its first crewed spacecraft the DEMO 2 becoming the first private company to place a person into orbit.

Purpose of SpaceX

Musk and Space X main purpose is to have a life on mars till 2025, every day this company is gaining a road towards mars. Musk even have a started an electro car called Tesla which is automatic and the modern car this generation needs. Space X is even the dream of man workers working under it to achieve their goal to reach the mars.

 They want to make humanity multiplanetary, they are working on a next generation for fully electro and reusable vehicles that will be more powerful ever built by any another in this world. They want to achieve a kind of milestones that no one has ever dreamed of such as reusability, accurate landing without causing any harm, and launching more and more rockets to the space in the coming time.

I am totally glad that I am born in Musk era to witness him and his fallows achieving great things in this world and also beyond this world the space.


Finally, I would like to say a man like Elon Musk are born once in a million years who have successful companies such as Space X, Tesla, PayPal, Solar city and Tesla energy, Neural ink and more, this guy will surely make this solar system our new home in few years and will also teach us some new ways to live in this planet.
