This week SpaceX reached new levels of success for the privatize space industry that will bring great advances to the entire industry. This is absolutely great news because it shows just how powerful and how successful private industries can become if the opportunity is available. More importantly this success also shows that private industry will be able to make space travel cheaper and more available in the near future which should bring plenty of research opportunities.
This entire mission was a massive success which is great news in every way. The success came in parts as SpaceX not only completed the first major privately funded space launch but also the first successful docking with the international space station. The fact that SpaceX was so successful is absolutely great news for the ISS program because it means there is still a method available to continue brining goods and supplies thanks to a small private American company.
For the average person this project might not exactly be amazing news. But in the grand scheme of things it is absolutely great news for the science and space industries as a whole. It will only be a matter of time before private space launches begin to become more and more common which means that some day soon space travel may eventually become a very real possibility for the average person.
