We have been hearing about SpaceX for a while, but very few people know about SpaceX in detail.
What is SpaceX?
I am Quoting the Line which they have given in their official website:
‘SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.’
Elon Musk is the CEO and the founder of SpaceX.
It is a private Company, which was founded in 2002. Mr. Musk is the CEO as well as Lead Designer. SpaceX, right now has nearly 5000 employees, all together in its headquarters, launch facility centres, rocket development centre and other offices all over the United States.
Who is Elon Musk?
He has a patent for Funnel shaped charge inlet, notable one among many he has.
He has three doctorates. In Designing from the Art Center College of Design, Aerospace Engineering from the University of Surrey and in Engineering and Technology from Yale University.
He is also the co-founder, CEO and product architect of a company Tesla.
Tesla makes electric cars, giant batteries and solar products.
He is also the co-founder and chairman of OpenAI, a nonprofit research company working to build safe artificial intelligence.
He was also the co founder of X.com, which later renamed as today’s Paypal.com.
He is also the founder of Zip2, one of the first internet maps and directions services, which helped to bring major publishers, including the New York Times and Hearst, online.
So what does SpaceX actually does?
The founder, Elon Musk himself has told, “I want to die in mars”. He have clearly mentioned from that, what he will be doing.
The Official mission of SpaceX is to enable humans to become a space faring civilization and a multi-planet species by building a self-sustaining city on Mars.
Space Tourism, Space Travel and Habitation in other planets are plans to be precise.
In my View, he is building new homes and Roads to them, through Space to eternity.
