SpaceX is the most well-known name in the private spaceflight industry and needs little introduction. It was founded by dotcom billionaire Elon Musk in 2002, with the goal of making humanity multi-planetary. They have repeatedly made ambitious development claims and stunned the world by delivering upon them.

2 years before that, however, in the year 2000, Jeff Bezos, one of Princeton physicist Gerard O’Neill’s ex-students, founded a private spaceflight company called Blue Origin, with the goal of enabling millions of people to live and work in space.

The technologies being developed by these companies seem to largely overlap, but they are just similar answers to 2 very different questions. Today we’ll be looking at these differences in their approach to spaceflight.
