One Step Closer

SpaceX’s demo-2 launch scheduled on 31st May 12.52 am IST will make it the first private company to conduct operational crew missions. The success of this rocket launch will usher in a new era of space upon us. NASA relied on Russian rockets for sending astronauts and cargo into orbit. It is also a historic launch as it’s the first crewed launch from U.S in nearly a decade. The SpaceX mission is to create human settlements on Mars and these orders will fuel that mission. With NASA having no intention of interplanetary travel, this will put them on the map as one of few organizations that want to make human beings a multi-planetary species.

After several years of research and development, SpaceX finally made reusable rocket. The Falcon 9 on its first successful landing opened many opportunities for SpaceX to grow. The Falcon 9 booster has performed various cargo missions for the International Space Station (ISS) and has also successfully launched over 422 Starlink satellites into orbit. This experience and performance have given SpaceX and NASA the encouragement and confidence needed to perform the demo to launch where they will be sending Robert bahan Ken and Douglas Hurley on board to the ISS. The very Falcon 9 booster that is being used for this mission has been flown for 51 times and is hence a very reliable piece of machinery. This advantage of reusability of boosters is one of the primary reasons SpaceX can get orders from NASA with zero competition.

Elon thought Mars exploration was next logical step for humanity.  He realized profitable business can be built by selling cheaper rockets and fund for his MARS mission. He needed an outstanding team to make this dream come true. SpaceX used unconventional method of hiring young achievers giving them a purpose and fresh air to breathe.

We are lucky to witness space becoming Affordable! Who knows one day space tourism becomes a thing?

    I’m part of a movement that talks about this. This same movement talks about Paradism and our Origins.
