  •  The space x teams are young. (4+ / 0-)

    And workaholic :)
    When I saw candid photos of the rocket, and mission control teams at work, it reminded me of early palo alto.

      the age juxtaposition between the SpaceX team and the NASA mission control team is always striking.  One looks like a bunch of grad students, the other like tenured faculty.  And every other aerospace company team looks like NASA's.  

      SpaceX owns the future.  Some of those young employees are going to found their own space companies with what they learn there, and at least a few might achieve similarly radical results.  That company is like a world-changer academy - Palo Alto is exactly the right analogy.  

      Another analogy would be the armies of Alexander, which given how rapidly SpaceX is sweeping away the old launch industry, might not be that far-fetched a comparison.

      Ask me if I'm afraid. I say, "Of course not. I'm a fool, and fools never die."
