SpaceX made history: propels astronauts into orbit

SpaceX, the private rocket company of Elon Musk, launched two American astronauts into orbit from Florida making the first spaceflight of NASA astronauts from U.S. soil in nine years.

‘It’s incredible, the power, the technology,” said U.S. president, Mr.Trump who was at Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the launch.It marks the first time commercially developed space vehicles-owned and operated by a private entity rather than NASA have carried Americans into orbit.

Apart from SpaceX, Boeing Co, producing its own launch system in competition with SpaceX is expected to fly its CST-100 Starliner vehicle with astronauts aboard for the first time next year.
