Space Transportation System or STS) in 2011, the mantle of responsibility for US interest in space has been passed to private companies like SpaceX. SpaceX, of course, was established in 2002 by inventor and engineer Elon Musk, founder of PayPal and Tesla Motors.

    Keep up to date with the space mission at the official SpaceX website.
