Space X

This post is a bit different than the rest. Space X is a private rocket company founder by the founder of Pay Pal, Elon Musk.  Space X employs close to 2000 people in Hawthorn CA.  I wish to work for them one day. Space X has an up coming Test flight.  This is a very difficult Test flight.  Things can and probably will go wrong.  I will try not to be disappointed if it does.  However, if all goes well it will be an absolute amazing achievement.  NASA has been working on the Orion capsule for years and its still years away from flying.  Space X launched and more importantly retrieved their Dragon capsule last year.  Something only the US, Russia, and China have done.If Elon Musk is successful we may yet see man on Mars in our life time if not this decade. Two more weeks!  Go Space X!
