Well done SpaceX I think this will be the start of some interesting space things over the next 10 years Im already saving for my ticket!


What stands out is their new kit and space module looks so much like Stanley Kubrick's gear in 2001 a space odyssey.. I always wondered why they never made a new update of that movie.. one of the best movies ever made..

Hopefully still alive but cryogenic will do as long as I can see some thing, if money gets tight I will just preserve my head in some kind of jam jar.. to be woken once in space.. :laugh:

Come join Trump's new Space Force military branch. You'll get paid to go into space. The movie below was based on a true story.

Launching satelites is big business.

For decades up to ten years ago the Americans and Russia had the majority of the market of putting satelites into orbit. The Chinese and Europeans were also competing. By 2017 some 45% of satelites launches were done by SpaceX. In 2019 it was almost 60% with as far as I can see Russia not launching a single commercial satellite.

Perhaps most importantly the cost of satelite launches has fallen dramatically because of SpaceX's pricing.

Incorrect,

example S.Korean CAS500-1 and 2 ...



 though they seem to have given up competing in the Commercial launch market
