Welcome back, Richest fans! At the time of their creation back in 2002, SpaceX was venturing into a very new territory with the private sector getting into space. And now, the Elon Musk company is worth billions of dollars! None of this could have been possible without the incredible tech the team at SpaceX have developed. Today, we’re going to look at some of their biggest successes. We’ll explore what each piece does and the various costs of creating it. Plus, we’ll take a gander at the mountain of cash SpaceX have made for each of their technological marvels.
Now for the spoiler paragraph. If you like surprises, we suggest you stop reading and watch the video multiple times. We start off with the rocket that got their name in legend by being the first of its kind, the Falcon 1. We then have one of the most important aspects of their rockets, the Dragon capsule. Which is meant to keep the astronauts safe. We’ll then explore the Falcon 9 which has made over 100 launches since its creation. We have the autonomous spaceport drone ships which are named after the work of science-fiction writer Iain M. Banks. We have the heavy reusable launcher the Falcon Heavy which is really powerful! Next is the Starship which has ambitions to take civilians to the moon and mars. Then we have Starlink. A vast collection of communication satellites that can provide the world with high-speed internet. Finally, we’ll briefly explore NASA’s Space Shuttle Programme and the cost behind it.
