Way to space
On June 4, 2010, at 5:45 am Atlantic time, a spaceship that did not belong to any government organization took off from Cape Canaveral and entered a low Earth orbit . In my opinion, there is not even a small step - for SpaceX and for all of humanity this is a big step.
Unlike last year’s launch , the Falcon 9 is SpaceX’s oldest rocket.
SpaceX is going to ride passengers around the earth and to the international space station. Up to seven passengers per flight.

A little bit about people: SpaceX's CEO is Elon Musk. In the photo below, it is on the right.
Those who have seen this face before, could only become aware of the fact that this same person is the executive director of Tesla Motors , the leading electric car manufacturing company , which actually produces electric cars and has already delivered more than 1,000 cars. Yes, what kind of cars: acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4 seconds! This is not just just an electric car.
Tesla recently entered into a venture with Toyota and will begin a series of 20,000 cars this year.
Elon is also the chairman of the board of directors of Solar City , a company that produces solar panels with installation, support, etc. Check out their website and what they offer.
And more than 10 years ago (in 1998-1999) he organized, and then sold eBay the progenitor of electronic money - PayPal.
Here is such an unusual person. Let good luck in undertakings accompany him, for, God sees, he does what the future holds for; what is really really cool in the correct sense of the word, and not in the understanding of sawing 14 billion into magic nanofilters.
