About SpaceX

SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not.

SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars.

Today, SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft in-house from the ground up. The company has more than 3,000 employees at its headquarters in Hawthorne, California; launch facilities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California; rocket development facility in McGregor, Texas; and offices in Houston, Texas; Chantilly, Virginia; and Washington, D.C.

"SpaceX is like Special Forces... we do the missions that others think are impossible. We have goals that are absurdly ambitious by any reasonable standard, but we're going to make them happen. We have the potential here at SpaceX to have an incredible effect on the future of humanity and life itself." - Elon Musk
