Elon Musk and SpaceX



SpaceX was established in 2002 by Elon Musk, the founder of PayPal and Tesla Motors. He founded the company with $100 million from his pocket and in 2008, SpaceX was awarded a $1.6 billion NASA contract for 12 flights of their Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station.  



In 2010, it became the first private company to launch obit and recover a spaceship. Musk already promised a $500,000 Mars flight by 2013.
