Not since the Apollo Program has the world seen such excitement surrounding the space industry. In today’s world, we are entering a new space race, however this is not a race between global super powers, but rather a race between multiple private space companies; in particular, SpaceX and Blue Origin.
SpaceX and Blue Origin, although have different long term visions for longterm space exploration, they will both be extremely important to the advancement in space technology. Currently SpaceX has been sending cargo to the International Space Station and satellites to space for years, and recently have sent humans to the ISS. SpaceX’s goal is to lower the cost of space travel by making rockets fully reusable to reach their ultimate goal of colonizing mars. SpaceX’s new rocket that is in development that is aimed at revolutionizing space travel is Starship.
Blue Origin was founded in 2000 with the goal to also lower space travel and to open space for space tourism. Like SpaceX, Blue Origin’s upcoming New Glenn Rocket will be fully reusable and will be capable of landing its first stage booster on either land or a floating drone ship.
At the end of the day, the race to develop the next largest rocket between two private space companies is amazing for human advancement. Both companies are capable of creating extraordinary rockets that will revolutionize space travel forever. Which rocket are you more excited about? Vote now in our Raging Patriot poll below!
