Tonight, I’m instructing NASA to build a permanently staffed space station within the next decade.

Endeavor has already reached a top speed of 575 miles per hour.
The shuttle Endeavor carried the following module, Unity, the first American part made by Boeing, two weeks later.
It was the start of an engineering masterpiece when Zarya and Unity came together.
Hundreds of launches followed, each one putting the station piece, tens of thousands of pieces at a time.
The finished result was a 109-

Elon Musk’s business beat Boeing to the Dragon in May 2020, which I discussed in another article.
Boeing should have flown people by now, but an uncrewed test trip in December 2019 didn’t proceed as planned when the Starline spacecraft entered the wrong orbit, delaying a crewed journey until 2021.
