Elon Musk and SpaceX Will Re-Launch Falcon 9 on March 30th
Elon Musk is revolutionizing the entire world with his technological endeavors. It all started when Elon Musk started mass producing the Tesla cars which are becoming the most popular auto vehicles, but this isn’t enough for the Tesla CEO. Elon Musk is also the CEO of SpaceX and he is making immense progresses when it comes to space traveling.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO is known for having a different approach when it comes to his companies. He doesn’t only look at profits and he is more inclined towards being independent. For example, SpaceX prides itself in the fact that it’s able of producing 90 percent of its rockets. This is quite impressive, especially when considering that other rocket companies usually depend on over 2,000 individual manufacturers in order to be able to function.
Reducing the cost of Space Travels
Elon Musk has made many promises along the years and he always kept true to his words. A couple of years ago, Elon Musk made a bold statement where he promised that space travels are going to be way cheaper than usual. In order to achieve this goal, Elon Musk and SpaceX are going to re-use rockets. In fact, this is about to happen on March 30th.
Falcon 9 Re-Launch
The rocket in cause has already been used in order to deliver a satellite into the orbit and after its mission was completed, the rocket has self-landed itself on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean. We should mention that usually, rockets that are flown into space are never landed safely and they just end up in the ocean.
If the weather is nice, Falcon 9 will be launched once again on March 30th. Elon Musk has announced that this procedure will offer a high 30 percent discount to SpaceX customers. This discount might not seem that large at first but it stands for around $62 million.
Falcon 9 Mission
Just like before, Falcon 9 will be in charge of delivering a satellite into the orbit. The difference is that this time it will be for a different customer. Considering the 30 percent discount, we can be sure that all interested customers are going to start using SpaceX in order to get their satellites into space from now on.
