The future of the space transport : SpaceX

Do you know really Elon Musk? After the electric cars, it's time to discover what is SpaceX, a silmultaneous project of the businessman.

Elon Musk is a visional businessman. Before becaming famous with its Tesla models called SX3, he had another scientific and crazy dream. He created SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corp) in 2002. If you've known Mass Effect, a science-fiction video game, I'm sure you're not certainly amazed by knowing Elon Musk is working on the first public space transport services. The future is coming soon. The concept is simple. You embark in a spaceship from New-York/London to Hong-Kong/ Tokyo in 30 minutes! You don't need to wait for hours in the airports. You can work far from your home without leaving your family for a few days.

​Elon Musk would want to make the future journeys on Mars easier as he said in the past. Maybe, he found the solution by creating the first public spacecrafts. The aerospace might be a new commercial transportation in 2018 as we can see it in futuristic movies in the 1990s.

Finally, the flying cars are useless if we replace them by commercial spacecrafts. The idea was great in Star Wars or in the world(s) of Doctor Who. What do you think about that project? Is it really possible in our society? What are the advantages and the disadvantages? Debate and share your opinions in the comments and on the #lifestyle channel.

  • Provocative article (in a good sense). Having in mind that we have changed horses to cars, it is safe to assume that cars will also be replaced at a certain point. We may theorize whether the replacement will arrive in a shape of personal starships. Sounds not that unnatural.

    However, before this happens, we should discover immortality ;)

    • All those concepts are really fascinating because you imagine how our society would be in 20/50 years. We are not used to see the new transports as new things we could develop today.It seems so unreal. Who would have guessed the internet...
