"A video of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) CEO and CTO, Elon Musk, speaking at the Space Foundations 25th National Space Symposium, April 1, 2009." Musk shows dramatic video of the successful Falcon 1 rocket launch, a recent Falcon 9 engine firing, and a high-quality animation of a future Falcon 9/Dragon capsule launch of human crew, transport of the Dragon capsule to the International Space Station, docking, undocking, reentry and water recovery using parachutes. In Q&A he reiterates their long-term goal of developing a fully-reusuable launch system, competing strongly in the international launch market, being a major cargo transporter to/from the ISS, and wanting to transport humans to LEO, the Moon and even Mars.
