In early 2009, SpaceX had just achieved the first successful Falcon 1 test flight and received the very important CRS contract from NASA, which awarded SpaceX the responsibility of sending the resupply missions to the International Space Station (ISS). During these very early days of the company, Mat Kaplan meets with CEO Elon Musk to discuss the company’s achievements and Elon’s vision for the future of the company.
