多年来，我们’ve met quite a few webcast hosts who are all actual 太空X engineers. John Insprucker is a fan-favorite, though. He currently works as the Principal Integration Engineer but he has actually spent his entire career working with rockets.
伊隆·马斯克（Elon Musk） is the public face of 太空X but there are lots of other extremely talented people at the company who sort of live in Musk’s shadow. One of them is Tom Mueller who was in charge of engine development at 太空X during the most crucial years.
龙准备期间发生了有趣的情况’s first mission in 2010. It illustrates how 太空X takes a very different approach to solving problems compared to most aerospace companies.
太空X is preparing for the first Starhopper flight and two Falcon 9 launches, Musk’秘密公司Neuralink将首次公开宣布，特斯拉将公布其创纪录的第二季度财务业绩。所有这些都将跟随麝香’关于“飞船”火箭的介绍，该火箭在最近几个月进行了许多设计更改。
In another installment of our 太空X Stories series, we bring you a 2017 interview with former 太空X employee Daniel Frolich. He was actually the very first intern the company hired back when 太空X had just 15 employees and was located in El Segundo. The interview contains some interesting stories from the early days of 太空X and also from Dragon development.
伊隆·马斯克（Elon Musk） has claimed in the past that the extremely quick 24-hour Falcon 9 reusey might happen in 2017 or 2018. This was yet another 上 e of his overly optimistic statements, because two years later, 太空X seems to be far from achieving such a feat. So I thought about what it would take to reuse a booster in 上 e day, what it might look like and what is preventing it from happening.
太空X’s fairing recovery efforts are gearing up again after a 3-month-long slow period caused by Mr. Steven suffering damage in late February. Luckily, Mr. Steven has now been fixed and should be ready in time to try to catch a fairing in about a month. In the meantime, 太空X has been recovering fairing halves by landing them in the ocean. I have a theory that until Mr. Steven manages to catch a fairing, we’仅在Starlink任务中看到重复使用的整流罩。
