Last year, Elon Musk’s company became the first to successfully send a team to the International Space Station. SpaceX showcased its starship rocket, designed to carry large crew and cargo for large space travel, and which can land directly. The prototype of the rocket is currently being tested in Texas, but exploded on all four flights.
