Chinese scientists and engineers are said to be close to finishing a futuristic spaceplane capable of flying into the orbit and returning to Earth at hypersonic speeds.
China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation released a statement on Tuesday that the reusable spacecraft should be ready to launch in 2020, Xinhua reports.
Elon Musk recently unveiled the future of Tesla with the new Model 3 that made the company $7.5 billion in a day. However, the CEO and co-founder of Tesla Motors saw this day coming nearly ten years ago when he shared his mastermind plan in a revealing blog post on Aug. 2, 2006.
The post titled “The Secret Tesla Motors Master Plan (just between you and me)” details the company’s mission to not only develop a high performance electric sports car, but to provide a wide range of models and affordably priced family cars. Musk writes:
SpaceX recently released the dramatic footage of their first successful landing of the Falcon 9 rocket after sending it up to low-Earth orbit to deliver 11 satellites. The landing occurred on December 21, 2015.
Reusable rockets serve as a big leap for the development of space travel, and the excitement of SpaceX’s employees over the successful landing certainly outlines how epic of a feat that is.
Elon Musk’s SpaceX unveiled the interior for their new spacecraft, the Crew Dragon, on Thursday.

Elon Musk, billionaire entrepreneur and possible savior of humanity through technology, runs multiple companies. He co-founded PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla Motors and Solar City, and yet he claims he doesn’t even know what a business is.
That’s what he told Tim Urban of Wait But Why when asked about his knowledge of business. Musk scolded him, saying:
Earlier this month, an internet firestorm was set off after Isis Wenger, a 22-year-old San Francisco-based engineer, was criticized online for being too pretty, and thus an unrealistic choice, to portray an engineer in an ad campaign for tech startup OneLogin. The only problem: Wenger is actually an engineer at the company.
In response to the criticisms, she began the #ilooklikenaengineer campaign on Twitter to encourage other female engineers to be seen and heard.
On Monday, singer Lana Del Rey premiered her latest single “High By The Beach” on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe and spoke on a number of topics, including one interesting little detail: she is a fan of Elon Musk and SpaceX and even spoke to him about it.
Lowe asked Del Rey about her interest outside of music:
As far as the future of humanity goes, there are five areas that will shape us the most: the internet, sustainable energy, space exploration, artificial intelligence, and human genetic code manipulation.
Elon Musk, one of the greatest innovators of our time, has already helped shape three of those areas — he co-founded Paypal for online financial transactions, Tesla Motors has given us a future with automobiles that don’t require fossil fuels, and SpaceX is making leaps into affordable and efficient space exploration.
There are probably a few things you could say to Elon Musk to tick him off, like, “Building a rocket to Mars is lame,” or “Electric cars ain’t shit,” but neither of those probably makes him more upset than hearing this word: “impossible.”
In Ashlee Vance’s new biography, “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future,” former SpaceX engineer Kevin Brogan explains how salty the billionaire entrepreneur gets when you tell him that something is impossible.
It turns out that even billionaires need a buddy with an extra bedroom (or six) to sleep over at sometimes.
In Ashlee Vance’s new book, “Elon Musk, Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future,” set to be released May 19, Google co-founder and fellow billionaire Larry Page reveals that Elon Musk hits him up every week to crash at his Silicon Valley mansion. Page explains in the book:
