Elon Musk achieves low cost space travel for all human kind through the successful launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
Elon Musk received SpaceX Falcon orbit launch approval after being awarded a licence by the Federal Aviation Administration. To date SpaceX travellers have spent over 29,000 days in space and over 100 in space walk.
The Orbit makes history as it follows suite in the path of greatness, launching where humankind’s most celebrated space machines and humans will launch in NASA’s Apollo 11 pad, the home to the famous Neal Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The Human space transporter heading to mars is top heavy at all levels weighing in at a whopping 2.760 pounds and 13 feet long. Its mission saw a $90 million investment while its licence demanded another $110 million insurance liability and an additional $100 million for government housing insurance.
The triple core heavy Falcon leads all others alike in this age since space shuttle is set to transport the Tesla Roadster at a hyperbolic orbit. SpaceX will play a crucial role in this event as it carries the responsibility to boost an electric car with accurate and powerful speed to escape earth gravity bound, Falcon Heavy boasted of 3 approved and confirmed missions: two for commercial telecom companies and one for the Air force.
Tesla Roadster’s modified document contains the following: “Flight shall mean the flight of a Falcon Heavy launch vehicle, commencing with the ignition of the first stage from Kennedy Space Centre (KSC) and transporting the modified Tesla Roadster to a hyperbolic orbit. Flight includes landing of the Falcon Heavy first stage core and inside boosters as indicated in the license application. A flight is concluded upon SpaceX’s last exercise of control over the Falcon Heavy vehicle, including the de-arming of Falcon Heavy vehicle stages or components that reach the hyperbolic orbit.”
‘’There’s a lot of risk associated with Falcon Heavy, a real good chance that the vehicle does to make it to orbit. I want to make sure to set expectations accordingly. I hope it makes it fair enough beyond the pad so that it does not cause pad damage’’, says Musk.
Connect World Sector News Magazine ( CWSN) took to the streets on, “The people’s Views” to hear what the general public referred to as civilians really have to say about firstly the existence of such machines and the possibility of travel. Here’s what they had to say:
‘’I would never go to space, reason being a space craft has too much power and uses the force of gravity, so a craft that carries 100 people is huge and there are many risk and the trip only takes an hour that is just too good to be true’’.
‘’I would love the opportunity of having to see the space and its earths, that would be a great experience, so yes I would definitely take that opportunity as such as it is risky but it’s a risk I’m willing to take’’.
