Space "visoneering"

Elon Musk of SpaceX

Interesting profile of SpaceX's Elon Musk, heir to past "visioneers" who sought to move the human species up - and out - through technology.  To Musk and those who think like him, the author writer, "the present is only a prototype."  SpaceX has proven its Falcon 9 medium booster with two flights and its Dragon capsule with two - they still have a lot of work to do,  but they have gotten further towards transport of cargo and humans in reusable spacecraft than any company ever has.
