SpaceX just launched humans to space for the first time

Elon Musk’s aerospace company, SpaceX, just successfully launched its first two people into orbit, ushering in a new age of human spaceflight in the United States. SpaceX is now the first company to send passengers to orbit on a privately made vehicle, and the flight marked the first time astronauts have launched into orbit from American soil in nearly a decade.

    Eric TiradoEric TiradoVor 16 Tage
    • NASA by and large only uses private industry to manufacture their parts. The Saturn 5 had Boeing make the first stage, North American Aviation made the second, and the third stage by Douglass Aircraft Company. Rocketdyne provided the F-1 and J-2 engines. IBM provided the instruments. All NASA did was basically assemble the parts, but they didn't go building a Saturn 5 rocket themselves.

  • This was so unbelievable to watch live on TV, as someone who never saw any of the shuttle flights live. Also being too young for any of the older US manned space flight missions, this felt like I was watching history in the making. Tears of joy are all I can describe watching Bob and Doug leave from US soil and watching them dock on the ISS the following day. Truly inspiring as a starting aerospace graduate student looking to fulfill my dream of working at NASA. Space Guitar Strap Link: Please check out my DE-visions channel and subscribe. I am creating many NASA/space-related content in the near future. To celebrate this massive success of Launch America, I made a time-lapse video of myself making a NASA inspired outer space guitar strap. Please check it out and share it with other space enthusiastic, I made a custom guitar that is all space-themed as well, huge video of that coming soon. Stay tuned.

    NitePremiumNitePremiumVor Monat
    • That's not even remotely true. NASA is primarily a research agency that from now until forever ago has always contracted out private companies. SpaceX will never develop and operate something like the JWST. Because there's no return on investment, and SpaceX is a business. NASA hires spacex to do things that aren't really all that important for them to do. Developing and operating something like GLAST, Hubble, or Parker Solar Probe is NASA's job. Getting those objects into space can be done by any private contractor able to do so safely and cheaply. SpaceX qualifies, so they can get government contracts, but they are not even attempting to do what NASA does. If they ever start, and Elon is running both Tesla and SpaceX still, then remind me to short tesla immediately, because Musk apparently has lost the principle of "a business is supposed to at least have a potential revenue stream from investment." Doing NASA's job would not qualify. Something like gamma ray astronomy does not have a clear revenue stream. At all.
