For a long time, the development of the space technology has promoted the humankind to go further in outer space. In September 2016, Space Exploration TechnologiesCorporation, also known as SpaceX announced the "Mars Plan" that would build the launch vehicle and spacecraft part of the Interplanetary Transport System, a long-term project which could achieve the idea of human access to Mars, but the project could be only implemented with significant demand from people and institutions.
fast development of technology, the aerospace
industry has made a
significant progress over
these years. It is known that travelling to the
universe was prohibitively expensive. SpaceX was founded with the goal of
technologies to reduce space transportation costs and
enable the colonization of Mars. It has successfully launch (by Falcon 9),
orbit and recover a spacecraft (Dragon). SpaceX is also the first private
company to send spacecraft to the International Space Station and satellite
into geosynchronous orbit. So far, SpaceX has entered the major commercial
launch market. The company now is making a concerted effort to make competitive bids for US military launches of EELV-class payloads.
Data shows that currently the market value of global aerospace economy is more than 330 billion US dollars while the commercial space industries account for 8%. In 2020, the output of global aerospace industry will exceed 485 billion US dollars, growing by around 59%. Within China’s space programs, launch vehicles, satellite applications and space broadband internet will be priority of developing aerospace industry.
