SpaceX and Rocket Flights
Have you ever wondered why everyone wants to use rocket ships to take us to other planets? Well, Elon Musk had the same thought and then he asked himself, why not use these rockets to get us around THIS planet? Yes sir, that is the idea – a revolutionary, completely insane idea and we simply LOVE IT!
These are the bold statements that he made before the 68th Aeronautical Congress this morning. This and saying that his company SpaceX plans to:
- Build a massive rocket which could put a satellite ten times of Hubble (13.2 × 4.2 m) which was launched in 1990 and is one of the largest satellites in space.
- Put a base on the moon
- Have two manned missions to Mars by 2024
The thought is to use the newest rocket – whose name is (Big F*@%ing Rocket) to shuttle people around this planet.
What a cool concept –
The thought is, that if time is money and we can be more productive by saving time, then why not use rockets to get us where we need to go? There are flights that last anywhere from 45 minutes to 23 hours depending on what part of the planet and how far you need to go.
Can you imagine how amazing it would be to go anywhere on planet earth in only an hour’s time? This is one of the many reasons that Elon Musk is a genius. This does not exist yet, but he did give us videos to show us what this might look like. The idea is to fly close to the earth’s orbit – at speeds of about 18,000 mph.
Now the question on everyone’s mind is cost. The concept is a great one, but who will be able to afford it. Although with Elon’s latest video he states that the price should be roughly the same as a full fare economy flight. WHAT????
