On Sunday, the company launched a record 143 satellites in its first “rideshare” mission. With rideshare, SpaceX aims to offer low-cost access to space for smaller companies and institutions. This is a huge step for the company as it cuts down costs massively.
In 1957 the Soviet Union launched the first satellite into space, Sputnik. Afraid to fall behind… the U.S. quickly stepped up their game, starting what we now call the space race. Today there is another space race going on. But this time it isn’t between rival countries.... It is between some of the biggest, and richest, names in tech.
