“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.”
I’m posting this for two reasons. First, my last employer in Sacramento before I came back to Ireland was Elon Musk, and his two South African cousins. Elon is the SpaceX CEO so I’m kinda proud of that. I was on a team responsible for mobilizing the world’s first and only vertically integrated sustainable energy company–Solarcity which became Tesla.
The astronauts arrived at the launch site in a Tesla car.
Second, these are hard times. I want to show something positive and pure about America, my second home and a country that gave me citizenship, wonderful relationships and gifts.
This is what we can do when we work together.
Before this historic achievement today the only way for astronauts to reach the International Space Station was through Soyuz. NASA was paying Russia more than 90 million per seat for rides to the agency for the last nine years.
