new Delhi. America has created history in space amid Corona crisis. For the first time, the US space agency NASA successfully sent two astronauts into orbit with the help of a private company spacecraft. The spacecraft is designed by billionaire Elon Musk's company SpaceX. The launch was earlier scheduled for May 27 but was postponed due to bad weather. NASA has sent astronauts Bob Benken and Doug Hurley into space with the help of the spacecraft-designed spacecraft.

The move is also important for US space plans since Russia's services were being used to transport logistics and astronauts to the International Space Station since the closure of the SpaceShuttle, not only increasing costs. At the same time, NASA also had its own limitations on flying, which is why the US government was constantly encouraging private companies to build spaceships. For the first time since 2011, an astronaut has flown from US land since the special closure. On 8 July 2011, SpaceShuttle Atlantis flew to the International Space Center. Which was the last flight of the shuttle program.

At the same time, Elon Musk's company Space X is aiming for space tourism. After Saturday's launch, the plan is expected to reach the next stage, where anyone can travel to space with the help of a spaceship. Many people have already booked for the trip. Currently, the price of a ticket is being reported as crores of rupees. With the dream of space tourism, SpaceX was laid in 2002. The company is already offering satellite launch services before taking astronauts to orbit. NASA has made it clear that in the future it can launch several other ambitious plans with the private sector.
