Futurity Channel on Youtube shows that SpaceX handles two-thirds of NASA’s launches (including many research payloads). It is interesting how Elon Musk manages to get his SpaceX employees to build successful rockets so quickly.
Since June 2010, rockets from the Falcon 9 group have launched 114 times, with 112 successful launches.
It seems that SpaceX is currently the only privately owned company that successfully delivers humans to the international space station.
It seems that the SpaceX flights are as cheap as $62 million, roughly two-thirds the price of a rocket from United Launch Alliance, a competitor.
How exactly does SpaceX manage to build their rockets so fast?
It sure takes exceptional engineering.
Their rockets are all made with innovative technology. Some cost-saving options have been chosen, such as stainless steel (which costs about $3 per kilogram). Take a look at the full video for more explanations.
