The Space Tourism Industry Will Soon Become a Reality...

SpaceX Rocket

With the strides SpaceX is making, people don't realize how we've suddenly ended up on the fast-track to space tourism and everyday people getting to leave the planet, for fun.

SpaceX's Elon Musk says that SpaceX is planning to launch a second company around the year 2022.

The company's chairman is planning a manned mission to Mars with the help of Mars One, an international organization that would establish a base for humans and settlers on the Mars. The Mars One plan has been met with some criticism regarding the number of future human missions they would need as well as funding to make the whole thing possible. However, the idea is still a good idea.

This is another case of a company who has shown great interest in the future of space exploration that can be quite successful and help others learn about that future. SpaceX is a good and well qualified organization to help people learn about space, especially when it's a new industry and a new type of business.

The company is also developing its own reusable rockets and is building a crewed version of the company's Falcon 9 rocket after the company bought another company, Orbital Sciences, for $1.6 billion just six years ago. Both companies are aiming for the Moon but they will both fail if they don't have the resources or determination to build and launch themselves. The first and the second Mars missions will be a good test of those.
