SpaceX Is Finally Launching Very Soon
It’s not so often that it feels like science fiction is becoming a reality. Sure, in aggregate, looking over our own lives, we can spot the points where the future happened. Cell phones, self-driving cars, the internet: these were all ideas of fiction, in novels and television, brought out of our dreams and into reality.
But the future really is happening this time, and it is happening now. Manned space missions for the United States (outside of ones to our space station) are becoming a reoccurring reality again, and, maybe within our lifetimes, these flights will not only be somewhat commercial but a routine event.
Sure, predicting the future is a crapshoot, but I hope the high-minded goals of SpaceX succeed. That man be allowed to live on Mars. That our moon becomes a place of activity again. Man has for so long dreamed of flying—so let’s fly all the higher.
SpaceX Represents The Great Hopes of Humanity
As I type this, I do not know what will happen with the mission. I do not know if it will be successful. But, if all does go well, we are going to see something that will change the face of multiple planets.
And, regardless of the scope achieved, I think this is a wonderful step for humanity. NASA is responsible for the invention of materials that we take for granted now, so who knows what innovations made for SpaceX might trickle down to our day-to-day.
The SpaceX Launch Might Just Change The World
But perhaps even more important than the actual singular mission is what it might do for the sciences. Everything nerdy is cool now, but science, ethical and forward-thinking science, is especially amazing. It’s how humanity goes further, lifts people’s survival, and to see it getting a much-needed boost in the mental space of a nation is heartwarming.
I don’t think anything that convinces people to look at our world and other worlds and want to understand them better is a bad thing. How could something that fills a starry sky with wonder, that makes people dream of things that they can really accomplish, ever be a detriment?
It may be finally time for humanity, not just a few brave amazing people, to see the stars for the glory they are.
