Space x will be doing manned space flights soon.

Elon is so inspirational that i would ride his rocket if he was looking for guys to volunteer.

Nope. Memories of the test crash death are still firm in the memories of the ticket holders.

He started it with 100 mill of his own cash he made from PayPal.

Spacex is now earning of course. NASA contract them to re-supply the space station and other projects.

A lot of the expertise came from NASA though. I think they have over 1 billion worth of skin in the game. The future savings on reduced space flight cost should pay off.

Have they recovered the central core yet ?

Not that I've heard. I'd say it's fooked. It hit the water @ 300 miles per hour and probably sank. Plus they weren't going to reuse it anyway.

Yeah, he said he'd release the footage and usually does. It depends if there was an off board drone camera. If it ain't out by now, safe to say they don't have it.

They're bringing in revenue so he personally probably isn't funding a huge amount any more.

NASA are their biggest customer, so they're providing a huge amount of the funding.

He said it blew up the camera in one interview I read
