SpaceX, a company owned by Elon Musk, the same man who owns TESLA, is starting to sell trips into space. But don’t get your hopes up, because unless you are in the insane upper class, you wont be going any time soon. The cost of a trip is 200,000 dollars, and the preparation for the trip will take months. SpaceX has announced very little about the trips, and how to get on board. Even if you are one of the lucky few who get a seat, you will be risking your life for a view. There are so many terrible things that have happened on space ships. Countless people have died and been seriously hurt.

This article relates to engineering because people have to design rockets to be launched into space for the peoples needs.
