SpaceX, visionary Elon Musk’s revolutionary space transportation company, is now in the Stennis Space Center flock.
The company will be testing rocket engine components with an eye on travel to Mars and other planets. A major big deal, to say the least.
If you’re not familiar with the company, SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 by Musk to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.
Fingers crossed that SpaceX will grow its presence at Stennis and help attract even more commercial testing business here in Hancock County.
SpaceX gave away down-to-earth ball caps and stickers at Monday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. If you want to own some SpaceX merch, go to www.spacex.com and check out the Occupy Mars “Heat Sensitive” Terraforming Mug for $15.
