We live in the future, folks. We're looking up into the sky like never before, and we've got our sights set on the red planet, Mars, and with SpaceX development making great strides, and you can (virtually) take a tour of Mars in this 360-degree viewer courtesy of Curiosity.
The United States plans to certify American aerospace manufacturer SpaceX to carry its national security payloads into space and has so far been ‘encouraged’ by the approach the company has taken to replace Russian rocket engines, US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday.
Rocket will carry European communications satellite from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
It looks like SpaceX is gearing up for another round trip with its Falcon 9 rocket, as partner SES S.A. announced today the company would shuttle a new SES satellite and attempt a water landing on February 24. This is the fourth sea-based landing attempted by SpaceX, which hasn’t had any luck making it happen. Show More Summary
The company has tried three sea-based returns before. Will the fourth one stick?
The man behind Tesla and SpaceX says he's "quite tempted" to move forward with work on an electric-powered jet.
Once you’ve conquered cars and rockets and batteries, what’s next? Well, if you’re Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, planes would be a logical choice. At the Hyperloop Pod design awards, Musk announced that he is very interested in vertical take-off and landing technology (VTOL) and making electric jets. Show More Summary
