Elon Musk Announces Latest SpaceX Idea And It Will Blow Your Mind
It’s time to have some fun with rockets! Imagine a giant party balloon descending from outer space, transporting a space rocket back into Earth’s orbit. No, this isn’t a joke! Elon Musk from SpaceX is back with a new idea that will leave you amazed. Just wait until you hear what Musk wants the rocket to land on. It will blow your mind!
The Big Picture
If this idea came from anyone else, it would be considered insane. But, since it’s Elon Musk, we’re going to take it seriously. The genius behind SpaceX tweeted in April that he envisions a “giant party balloon” serving as a ferry to transport a space rocket back from orbital velocity. But, that’s not all he has planned…
Designing More Rockets
SpaceX has gathered attention in recent years since launching and landing its first successful rocket in 2012. Now, the company is producing larger rockets and announced this year that engineers are working to design a high-speed boat and large net to catch part of a rocket. However, this hasn’t worked, until now…
Operation Bouncy House
Musk replied to his own tweet after making the announcement that he wanted to use a giant party balloon to bring a rocket back from orbit. He said, “And then land on a bouncy house.” This isn’t a joke! Musk wants everyone to have fun and this certainly would be an experience no one would ever forget…
Designed Just Right
Musk has since added that a giant balloon is “great for creating a giant object that retains its shape across all Mach regimes and drops ballistic coefficient by two orders of magnitude.” The balloon would be able to withstand the supersonic descent back to the planet, and it would be an amazing sight for the observers on Earth.
An Amazing Sight
We don’t know yet when SpaceX plans to use a party balloon and land a rocket on a bouncy house, but the space company will most likely surprise everyone with a spectacle you wouldn’t want to miss. Here’s the important question: Will you be watching when this happens?
