SpaceX is an American aerospace company that designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. Founded in 2002, SpaceX was launched with the purpose of creating the technologies needed to build simple and relatively inexpensive reusable rockets and reduce space transportation costs. Many vehicles have been designed by SpaceX, including the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9, which were designed to become reusable. With an employee base of more than 4000 people, SpaceX has gained international recognition for its historic milestones and was even awarded a number of contracts from NASA to design, develop and demonstrate launch systems.
