I don’t know much about this man who is suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome or Autism. Autism effects your nervous system & so overall emotional, cognitive, social & physical health of an individual. I have been with such patients & one could observe how difficult it was for them to communicate & socially interact. Such people have obsessive interests & so this crazy man has of whom I am going to write about in this blog. Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX didn’t have any background of space tech, rockets or Mars (the planet).
Elon had the curiosity to explore Mars & see if life does or does not exist on this red planet. He used to visit NASA website to know when they would go to Mars. Elon Musk was in his late 20’s when he went to Russia on a hunt for a rocket in order to reach Mars. But he didn’t get a good deal from the Russian space organization as he found it way too expensive for a ride to Mars. Just think that this crazy man with no background of rocket science & space travel already had an idea about the expense of the travel.
That’s how the journey of SPACEX started. The thought of manufacturing own rockets landed in his mind & that too such rockets which could be reusable and cost effective. You must know that a capsule is attached to the rocket. Now what is a capsule? It is a human spaceship or in simple words it is a chamber that carries crew/ humans to travel in space. You need a 3 stage rocket to carry this capsule in space. Rocket separates from the capsule in 3 stages.
