For a man considered dreamy and simply passionate, Elon Musk will surely have his last laugh of the day after overtaking Amazon's Jeff Bezos to become the world's richest man, when a large chunk of that money is basically one. History of Tesla and SpaceX.

But before Musk became captain at Tesla and transformed the company, he had launched Space X. The man believed that humans are likely to kill the planet we live in and the time to find space for a new home is imminent.

Mars had been in his mind for a while, so SpaceX was launched just for that purpose, to make rocket and rocket launching cheap and affordable. So this is the guy behind the cheap invention of space and the electrification of the car, and like everything else, the two babies are inextricably linked. More than what the average SpaceX or Tesla group fan will recognize.

In doing so, Musk managed to use the best of SpaceX and Tesla to work with each other, which in the end seems to work for his bank balance and of course for the end user, you. Here's a glimpse at the history of Tesla and SpaceX ...

Not many know, but Musk founded SpaceX before he became part of Tesla, or even before Tesla appeared. SpaceX was founded in 2002 by Musk and Tesla in 2003. However, Musk did not join Tesla until then, in 2004, and became CEO in 2008 after the founder left.

The business between the two companies is natural because Musk knows how to use each company's USP to each other's advantage. It could be argued that a maker of reusable missiles and a maker of electric automobiles may have nothing in common. But you are wrong, or rather, you are not a musk.

SpaceX's idea was to create reusable rockets - ones that are cheap to build, cheap to send into space, land safely on Earth, and then can be reused for other missions. The ultimate goal is to build viable spacecraft that can eventually inhabit a planet like Mars, a rocket that can safely transport people to and from Earth as well as to other colonies.

This means that SpaceX rockets must be lightweight and experienced in making lightweight materials. This is what  Musk believes could work for Tesla. Because of this, the Tesla Model S has an aluminum body chassis, and Musk goes on to say that it is the only aluminum car ever made in North America.

Tesla, on the other hand, has experience with remote batteries, and that's where SpaceX takes advantage of all the research - and Musk mentions how the Dragon Space Capsule takes advantage of the R&D benefits of Tesla batteries.

In addition, Musk believes that SpaceX should seek inspiration for the auto industry, as its main idea is to build rockets that make sense for passengers and perhaps even human colonies in outer space, each one specially adapted to the type of planet that is ideal for it.

All of this may sound a lot like science fiction and bogus, but at one point even the electric car was seen as more of a joke and an alternative to gasoline. Tesla has proven that people are wrong. With Musk's skillful guidance and vision, we can see bigger things than SpaceX.

For Musk, the car was the inspiration for the SpaceX rocket - it was cheap, could be 200,000 miles long, and had airbags that were used to save lives. This is what SpaceX missiles are supposed to be.

In a recent SEC document, the roles of Tesla and Space X in their respective research and development became clearer.

For example, SpaceX buys millions of battery components from Tesla, including $ 2.2 million in 2019 and 2020. Not only that, SpaceX also buys vehicle parts without batteries, and that's also millions - oddly, they are the most serviced auto parts. Tesla. the center needs to fix the Tesla car. SpaceX paid Tesla an additional $ 700,000 for an undetermined "special tool" and that includes construction costs. In 2019, Tesla sold such a system to SpaceX for $ 300,000.

In contrast, SpaceX charged Tesla $ 200,000 in the first quarter of 2020 for using its private jet.

Tesla became better known, especially when SpaceX had a fleet of Tesla vehicles to publicly transport astronauts and their employees to important events, launches, and the like. Tesla appears to be at the end of this trade, but we believe Musk has more aces for SpaceX. Reuters
