It seems that all ambitious men are going to the space, I think.
Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, said he was willing to launch hundreds of satellites to enable people all over the world to utilize the internet connection.
He is a great inventor and investor. In the past, he developed an online-publishing company. Using the profit of selling it, he entered e-commerce industry, creating Zip2, the predecessor of Paypal. After that, he founded SpaceX to develop a space rocket. He also invested to Tesla Motors in developing electric cars.
According to the media, he is collaborating with Greg Wyler, a satellite-industry veteran and former Google executive. Their aim is to launch a total of 750 satellites each weight is less than 250 pounds. I am not sure how this task is challenging.
Elon Musk is said to be a model of Ironman. To be shameful, I had not known him till a couple of months ago. Indeed, he is very energetic and handsome man.
As I wrote, Google and Facebook is eager to broaden the availability of the internet with several methods. It seems definitely worthy to accomplish the true world wide web. Musk's plan is more greater.
Takafumi Horie, an ex-CEO of Livedoor, is also participating in launching a rocket. He said that it was based on his own curiosity. Space travel will be no more fantasy.
However, the technical hurdle is still tough. Recently, an experimental spaceship of Virgin Galactics fell on the ground accidentally, killing a pilot. It made the plan of commercial flight of Virgin seriously damaged.
It is no doubt that satellites are much easier to throw into the space than space shuttles. I hope Musk and his competitors will be successful and bring us more dreams.
