Elon Musk of SpaceX is set to make a major announcement February 27. Rumors say it’s about a mission to the moon. Musk said the press conference would begin at 3 p.m. EST, however it appears to be delayed.
Musk’s company SpaceX is a transport services company that he founded in 2002. Its mission is to reduce the cost of space transportation and try to colonize Mars.
SpaceX has had numerous great achievements in space technology. It successfully sent the first privately-funded, liquid-fueled rocket into space and successfully recovered it.
In 2010 after years of research and investment, SpaceX successfully launched Falcon 9.
Then just a few months later, they sent a capsule to orbit around the Earth. On its return, it safely crashed into the Pacific Ocean and made it the first commercial spacecraft ever to do so.
