About SpaceX

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of Mars. SpaceX has developed several launch vehicles, as well as the Dragon cargo spacecraft and the Starlink satellite constellation, and has flown humans to the International Space Station on the SpaceX Dragon 2. SpaceX's achievements include the first privately funded liquid-propellant rocket to reach orbit, the first private company to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station, the first vertical take-off and vertical propulsive landing for an orbital rocket, the first reuse of an orbital rocket, the first to launch a private spacecraft into orbit around the Sun, and the first private company to send astronauts to orbit and to the International Space Station. As of 31 December 2020, SpaceX has flown 20 cargo resupply missions to the International Space Station under a partnership with NASA, as well as an uncrewed demonstration flight of the human-rated Dragon 2 spacecraft on 2 March 2019, and the first crewed Dragon 2 flight on 30 May 2020. In December 2015, a Falcon 9 accomplished a propulsive vertical landing. This was the first such achievement by a rocket for orbital spaceflight. In April 2016, with the launch of SpaceX CRS-8, SpaceX successfully vertically landed the first stage on an ocean drone ship landing platform. In May 2016, in another first, SpaceX again landed the first stage, but during a significantly more energetic geostationary transfer orbit mission. In March 2017, SpaceX became the first to successfully re-launch and land the first stage of an orbital rocket. In January 2020, with the third launch of the Starlink project, SpaceX became the largest commercial satellite constellation operator in the world.
