SpaceX
Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX, pronounced «Space-Ex») is an American space technology company headquartered in Hawthorn, California, USA.
It was founded in 2002 by the former shareholder of PayPal and CEO of Tesla Motors Ilon Mask in order to reduce the cost of flights to space, opening the way for the colonization of Mars. The company developed the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles, from the very beginning with the goal of making them reusable, and the Dragon spacecraft (put into orbit by the same Falcon 9), intended for replenishment of the International Space Station. The passenger version of Dragon V2 for transportation of astronauts to the ISS is in the final phase of development. Since 2015, is also involved in the implementation of the vacuum train project Hyperloop.
In order to control quality and cost, the development, production and testing of most of the components of the product is based on internal resources, including the Merlin, Kestrel, Draco and SuperDraco rocket engines used on Falcon rockets and the Dragon ship.
