The Space Race is on! And it’s not just between the US and Russia. Could private tech companies like Elon Musk’s SpaceX be the future of space travel? Can SpaceX rockets, like the SpaceX Dragon or Falcon make a moon landing? Or a Mars landing?

 

Space, The Final Frontier

There are many reasons why people want to explore outer space. Humankind wants future in space. But it’s also really expensive to get there. That’s why only three countries on Earth have managed to launch humans into space: Russia, The United States, and much more recently, China.

Because of the cost involved, all of these space programs are government-run. In The U.S. that program is NASA. It was founded in 1958. It’s put a man on the moon, launched the Voyager probe into the furthest region of our solar system.

Now there is a new challenger in the space arena–SpaceX. It’s the first private company taking a serious crack at getting humans into space. According to the SpaceX website, “The company was founded in 2002 revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.” It was founded by eccentric billionaire Elon Musk.
