SpaceX and Falcon 9

Space Featured Image 7


Very sorry for the late post but now that im up and ready lets get it on!

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., doing business as SpaceX, is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk {tesla founder}with the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of Mars.

Now is this a good idea of the colonization of mars and harmful pollutants being ejected into the air, if so this could repeats historys flaws however; considering the following factors of:tourism,life and extraterrestrial life this might not be such a bad idea deducing this by bringing into the fact that there are Crisises on earth and if spaceX can bring in tech thgat will drastically help us then that will be amazing!Now onto the quite hard and unknown side,falcon 9 and dragon capsules what are they?Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. Falcon 9 is the first orbital class rocket capable of reflight. SpaceX believes rocket reusability is the key breakthrough needed to reduce the cost of access to space and enable people to live on other planets.

Falcon 9 was designed from the ground up for maximum reliability. Falcon 9’s simple two-stage configuration minimizes the number of separation events -- and with nine first-stage engines, it can safely complete its mission even in the event of an engine shutdown.

Falcon 9 made history in 2012 when it delivered Dragon into the correct orbit for rendezvous with the International Space Station, making SpaceX the first commercial company ever to visit the station. Since then Falcon 9 has made numerous trips to space, delivering satellites to orbit as well as delivering and returning cargo from the space station for NASA. Falcon 9, along with the Dragon spacecraft, was designed from the outset to deliver humans into space and under an agreement with NASA, SpaceX is actively working toward this goal. If this is the future then so be it?

    Thank for your providing so much information. You've said: If this is the future then so be it? - what do you by that and should we accept space tourism as the new reality?

    Well, what meant by "if this is the future then so be it"is that we allow this new type of tech to immerse and begin a new era for us human because it will benefit all mankind as crisis's on earth will reduce gradually and we should accept space tourism as the new reality as it is a start and this innovation will lead to better things like new space tech which will allow us to inhabit planets and explore space as we know it!
