America’s dwindling enthusiasm for space exploration is an unfortunate result of greater societal issues. Thankfully, tech leaders Elon Musk and Jeff Bezo are combatting our apathy by founding their respective innovative aerospace companies SpaceX and Blue Origin. To celebrate their accomplishments, I created SpaceX Flights, an open source tool to visualize every SpaceX Flight from their first mission to their latest.
Users first select the mission they would like to view using an interactive chart that displays the payload mass color-coded by orbit type.
Many other aspects of the flight are displayed including payload information, rocket type, launch site, and the press video.
