When Elon Musk first launched a space mission in 2010, he completed a "test run" for NASA. Now, after completing several successful missions under the SpaceX umbrella, the billionaire is stepping up his game by announcing the Falcon 9 mission, which will launch in 3 weeks.
According to Space News The Falcon 9 mission will lead satellites for the commercial fleet operator Iridium and a joint mission for NASA and Germany
The 70 meter high Falcon 9 ship, which, according to him Named after the launch of nine commercial operations using liquid oxygen and kerosene, in 2013 it embarked on commercial missions (such as this one) and launched as a direct competitor to the Atlas V rocket, which was formed as a joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
To date, Elon Musk has launched more successful missions under the SpaceX umbrella than anyone else.
The mission will have its origin at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and will initially provide gravity recovery and climate experiment follow-on satellites to low-ear orbit. This will then be followed by the delivery of five Iridium Next satellites.
One of the things that makes Elon Musk and his company so powerful, according to Quartz is that it has specially designed both the company and the company to launch the rockets ̵

For example, musk reusable booster can increase the payload ( in this case the satellites) into space and back the rocket to earth autonomously. Compared to Atlas V's $ 100 million prize, Musk's Falcon 9 is worth about $ 60 million, making it both affordable (NASA-compliant) and environmentally friendly.
And even though there were a few glitches that brought SpaceX 2015 to a standstill and in 2016, Elon Musk is ready to overtake all of the competition in the space arena by the end of 2020, if the current forecasts prove true.
