SpaceX visit in Los Angeles

“I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact.” – Elon Musk

We visited SpaceX compound in California where the company currently puts together the second version of its Falcon 9 full thrust launcher and the Dragon capsule. These guys are revolutionizing the space exploration industry by cutting the cost of the market by up to 40% (source) by applying vertical integration, producing around 85% of hardware in-house and having a modular approach with software development. We are not building rockets (yet) but we apply the same approach to every one of our projects.
