On the 16th of November, SpaceX has launched its second crewed mission, marking the company’s continuation to become the leading human and cargo interstellar transport company.

The crew left off at the Kennedy Space Center with three Americans and one Japanese on board and has a final destination set at the International Space Station with an estimated flight time of 27 and a half hours.

SpaceX has had a meteoric rise in notoriety and public appeal after it flew past doubters to shattering what anyone thought was possible with modern day rocket technology.

From Landing rocket boosters on tiny barges in the ocean, designing interstellar crafts that may put us in reach of Mars and beyond, Elon Musk’s rocket company makes you gaze up in awe and gives a second wave of hope to humans aspirations among the stars.
