- you're a member of Here Be Dragons, and you're bored, and figured you'd browse this thread,
- you made the mistake of asking me, "Hey, Ali, tell me more about this space stuff you're always going on and on about!" and I linked you here.
Now, there is a lot of cool stuff going on, in and around outer space, and there are a lot of people and companies making it happen; I couldn't possibly cover it all, and wouldn't dare try. But there's one thing in particular that's happening, that's near and dear to my heart, and so I'm going to tell you a little more about that, and show you why it matters to me.
The "thing" in question is a company called Space Exploration Technologies Corp., familiarly known as SpaceX, rather famously founded by Internet billionaire Elon Musk, and the reason I'm so fond of them is because, well, they're doing some amazing stuff.
Don't believe me? Watch this.
This is SpaceX. This is what they do.
And this is only the beginning.
