  • There is a saying that if something is not that hard to do it's not rocket science

  • Implying that if something in fact is rocket science. It is really hard to do Elon Musk

  • The founder of SpaceX has never had any proper training in rocketry

  • He started SpaceX in 2002 with a spreadsheet and a dream of colonizing Mars

  • Competing with companies like Boeing Lockheed Martin or orbital ATK musk has proven countless times that he knows exactly

  • how to position a company and how to think out of the box and to separate his inventions from the rest of the competition

  • Elon Musk once stated in an interview that he does not care about degrees when it comes to candidates for his company's

  • Far more important in his opinion is a portfolio of work and the drive to achieve greatness

  • SpaceX has always had a passion for creativity. Not only their creations are out of this world

  • Also the names they give their inventions can be called very creative to say the least

  • Probably the most prominent examples of creative name giving are the Falcon rocket

  • Family named after Han Solo's Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars franchise the Dragon capsule named after Papa

  • and

  • the drone ships used for recovery of falcon boosters on the ocean called just read the

  • instructions and of course

  • I still love you

  • Both names taken from the science fiction novel the player of games

  • Which is part of the culture series by Scottish writer Ian M banks last but not least the now called

  • starship super heavy rocket currently in development by SpaceX was formerly known as

  • bfr or big Falcon rocket inspired by The BFG

  • 9000 weapon from the video game Doom where B F G stands for a big fucking gun

  • Elon Musk has proven repeatedly

  • that he has a sense of humor just in case that you haven't noticed by now that he knows how to make a joke or

  • Two he has a framed poster in his corner cubicle at the SpaceX headquarters that reads when you wish upon a falling star

  • Your dreams can come true unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth

  • Which will destroy all life then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for

  • Unless it's death by a meteorite

  • Starship will revolutionize space

  • Where the total capacity of payload to low Earth orbit right now is roughly 500 metric tons

  • starship will boost this to roughly 10 million tons a single starship would launch the weight of the ISS, which is

  • 420 tons into Lille in a bit more than a day

  • launching the current yearly

  • Capacity of the whole world into space would take a starship roughly two days as it will be capable of lifting off into space

  • three times a day

  • NASA recently announced that a single SLS launch will cost the US taxpayers roughly two billion dollars

  • SLS block 1 will be capable of lifting roughly 77 tons to Leo in

  • Comparison according to Elon Musk a spacex starship launch will cost two million dollars and is capable of the mentioned 100 tons

  • Now how much would we be able to lift into orbit with a starship for two billion dollars?

  • 2 billion divided by 2 million times 100 tons

  • 100,000 tons of cargo

  • So for the cost of one SLS launch instead of getting 77 tons to low Earth orbit

  • SpaceX promises to lift the weight of

  • 238 International Space Station's

  • This is the world of the Space Exploration Technologies

  • Corporation

  • SpaceX has already disrupted the launch industry and it will probably continue to do so in the future

  • Elon Musk will get his place in the history books as the man who switched the world to electric transportation

  • the man who invented PayPal the man who founded the first successful private launch provider the man who reused the first orbital

  • Rocket the man who launched the first car into space the man who built starship the man who colonized Mars
