Elon Musk founded SpaceX on March 14, 2002, paving the way for two remarkable decades transforming the aerospace industry in ways never thought possible.
The powerhouse commercial launch provider we know today has come a long way since it opened its doors in 2002. On this day back in 2008, on its fourth attempt, SpaceX launched Ratsat into space on its Falcon 1 rocket.
In 2009, Elon Musk wrote an article titled, “Risky Business” discussing his goals for the future and the challenges overcome thus far since SpaceX’s founding.
Eric Berger, the author of the new book “Liftoff” which tells the story of the early days of SpaceX, will be hosting a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread today at 6 PM EDT alongside SpaceX’s first launch director Tim Buzza.
