SpaceX Associated with the Military for its Secret Missions

Within the span of a few years, Elon Musk has taken a plunge in terms of technological advancement. Right from sustainable automobiles to space missions, Musk is a name which excels at every field he picks. His space organization SpaceX is one of the most prominent ones in the world. This organization comes up with something new on a regular basis and surprises us. Its successful innovations have become such a common feature that everyone has their hopes high. And undoubtedly, the spatial body doesn’t let us down. In the past, we have come across news about SpaceX lending its spaceships to the defense. This time, the organization plans to help the defense in confidential matters as well.

Recently, SpaceX left behind the United Launch Alliance by taking over the contract of carrying out space launches of the Defense Department. This broke the monopoly of the other organization and carved a niche for SpaceX in terms of efficiency. The first such launch took place in May which was a satellite for the National Renaissance Officer. This launch was made a public affair under the scrutiny of an innumerable quantity of people. The latest mission by SpaceX deals with the Defense Department but will keep the details under covers.

SpaceX and its association with the military

The latest association between the space organization and the military is regarding secret missions carried out by the defense. This means that the defense considers SpaceX credible enough to include it in such highly confidential missions. This says a lot about the reputation this Musk-founded organization holds for itself. It not only provides latest innovations to the defense group but also gives subsidized rates for the same. This is a major reason behind the defense giving preference to SpaceX in comparison to ULA.

ULA has been working to bring down its cost under $100 million but SpaceX has already poached a quotation of its prices worth $61 million. There is a significant difference in the prices yet Musk is known for its high-end technology. The space organization along with the government will test whether cheaper space launches will work for sensitive military missions or not this summer. For this, they will launch a premiere yet highly classified Pentagon into the earth’s orbit this summer. If it works out successfully, then the organizations will go ahead with the planning of such similar missions. Sources claim that the key source of income for SpaceX comes through its role as a military contractor.
