Will Elon Musk's SpaceX program revolutionizes the Space Transport?We all know that scientists are trying to find a suitable location and volunteers to colonize Mars. But the major challenge is the transport mechanism. Space research organizations such as NASA are using the classic jet (plane like) engines which carry the space shuttles along with the astronauts into space and bring them back to earth. They had many flaws and the project cost is also too high. In one such mission, some astronauts passed away including our India's astronaut Kalpana Chawla in a tragic failure during the journey back to earth.
To overcome the restrictions of this method, Elon Musk has come with new methods which are cost effective and the primary goal is to transport humans to Mars. Since they are a private organization, they are the first to set world records in sending spacecraft to International Space Station. They also successfully tested the space crafts that can be reused and can land back to the surface of the planet back from the orbit.
On February 6, 2018, SpaceX launched partially reusable heavy lift launch vehicle called Falcon Heavy into the earth's orbit which carried Tesla Roadster (Electric car). Well, there is no official release of when it is going to land back on to earth surface, it is designed in such way.
Do you think SpaceX program revolutionized (or will) the space transport system? Will it be the first company to take humans to planet Mars?
