Why SpaceX Is Saying "IP-No" to Going Public

October 16, 2017

Will SpaceX go public soon? Will Goodman, Managing Editor at Rockets are Cool, says the short answer is no. Elon Musk has stated he has no plans to IPO in the near future. Goodman also talks about how demand for telecommunications and satellites will prove that SpaceX is worth $50 billion.

Plus, Richard Branson announced an investment in Hyperloop. Goodman believes the project will benefit from being attached to Virgin Galactic and Richard Branson, if nothing else. He discusses the idea of everyone being focused on the idea of getting anywhere in the world under an hour. However, he says we just don't have the guarantee that this can happen yet.
