SpaceX is a non-governmental spaceflight entity, which places satellites into an orbit and then takes cargo to the International Space Station (ISS). It was the foremost non-governmental entity to take an aircraft to the International Space Station in 2012. The entity is working on making a powerful rocket and a space ship with the capability of carrying people into space. Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of the entity stated that he wanted people to debut flying aboard on the brandy huge rocket ship of his company in the coming year or so.
Who owns SpaceX?
Musk, who is a businessperson and an entrepreneur who was born in South Africa invented SpaceX. He is 30 years of age. He first got his lakh when he sold his two ever-progressing entities namely; Zip2, which he sold for $307 million back in 1999 and PayPal of which eBay bought for $1.5 billion in 2002. This is a report from the New York Times. He then made a decision of venturing into a non-governmental funded space entity.
Previously, Musk had an idea of transporting a greenhouse, dubbed the Mars Oasis, to Mars. His aim was to direct the curiosity of people into adventures at the same time providing a science locality on Mars. However, the expenses ended up being expensive, and rather, Musk began a spaceflight entity known as Space Exploration Technologies Corporation or SpaceX. currently, it is located in Los Angeles, the periphery of Hawthorne, California.
He spent like a third of his said fortune, $100 million to get SpaceX on track. There was criticism that he could be successful, which went on into SpaceX’s first years.
After finishing 18 months of private toiling on a spaceship, SpaceX revealed the spaceship in 2006 with the name Dragon. Elon Musk named the spaceship after the ‘Puff, the Magic Dragon.’ This was a 1960s hit song from a family group of Mary, Paul, and peter. He confirmed that he chose the name because the skeptics thought his spaceflight targets were futile.

Elon Musk was already a successful executive with vast experience when he launched SpaceX and he strongly had faith that more reliable and frequent launches could bring down the exploration cost. He sought out a firm consumer that would finance the early development of a spaceship.
