Our Latest SpaceX News special feature has so much to cover. There has been a lot of happening in the last few days so far as the Elon Musk-owned space venture is concerned. 

For the uninitiated, SpaceX remains the largest provider of satellite-based high-speed, low-latency broadband internet in the world. It also enjoys a solid backing from NASA thanks to a multi-billion deal, which was inked years back. In this regard, we must note that this very deal forces it to race against time to meet up the 2025-deadline set by NASA to showcase that it can actually take human beings to the Moon. 

The last year went quite eventful for SpaceX, as we saw the SpaceX Starship Launch and the SpaceX Dragon Launch, in quick successions. This year too, it had a bright start in the form of the new SpaceX launch. However, there’s a lot in store for Elon Musk’s dream space startup, when it comes to 2023. 

To the utter exhilaration of the space enthusiasts, a series of exciting events, which are going to play a pivotal role in shaping up the venture’s future pathway and hold huge significance in terms of advancements in space science, unfolded in style in the span of just a few days.
