    There was a bunch of space missions planned to be accomplished by different space companies. For example, the crushed mission Mars One was closed because of the lack of money and now SpaceX plans to lead the Mar colonization to the end. Thanks to launcher rocket company all over the world the space colonization doesn't seem to be impossible.

    From 2015. They aren’t claiming to be the first space rocket. The historic part of this is the successful landing of an orbital rocket... things that used to fall off and drop back to earth. It’s pretty darn cool that these rockets self-pilot back to landing pads where they are recovered for later use.

    Big picture, great, so we can export all of humanity's stupidity, greed and self-importance all over the galaxy? Yay!
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.

    I can't stand McDonalds here, on Mars, their Beef supply chain would be pretty terrible.

    Exactly so. The quest to go to Mars befuddles me. Sure, many like to explore and that's ok. But most seem to put some sort of hope of human's future in colonizing Mars. There just isn't any rational thinking in that. The very fact that we can't stabilize humanity in it's breeding and consumption on a planet that we have been optimized to live on. The fact that we have pandemics, water shortages, food shortages, hundreds of millions of starving people, energy issues, and basically can't get along with each other. All of this on a planet that is optimized for our existence, and we have people wanting to colonize a hostile planet.

    It's as though they think "Well, we turned earth into a giant turd. But Mars, well on Mars we will start anew and live in a utopia.". It's so stupid. If you can't fix your planet, then don't go exploring to crap up other planets.

    Yes, man!
    You're absolutely right. Space exploration makes sense if it can improve life here. Some just played too. We have a planet full of garbage. Let's make another garbage planet!
    (Haha ...)
    But launching satellites seems to make sense right now.
    After all, we can get the best quality of communications, the best quality of tracking climate change, etc.
    And here we can be helped by lesser-known companies that are more interested in real offers for the planet.

    The takeoff, flop and almost successful landing of Spacex Starship today was one of the most amazing things I've seen--

    Tom Cruise and director Doug Lyman will go into space in October 2021. This is stated on the page "Space Shuttle Almanac" on Twitter, which published a waybill for the next three years. Their flight is designated as a tourist trip.
    The new action movie with Cruz will be partially or completely filmed in space.
    There are no details of the plot of the picture yet. It is known that filming will take place at the International Space Station.
    A new kind of films awaiting us? Or a new kind of business?
