SpaceX is so popular nowadays that almost everybody has known or heard its name. The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk. Their goal seems to be the colonization of Mars and making space affordable (relatively!). They develop and operate different rockets, spacecraft, and satellites. There are pioneers in private spaceflight and more successful than any other company. They have sent astronauts to the International Space Station.
Have a look at these images that shows how futuristic SpaceX is.

- THERMODYNAMICSIt is the branch of physics that deals with the concepts of heat and temperature and the inter conversion of heat and other forms of energy.
- THERMAL PROPERTIES OF MATTERTemperature is a relative measure or indication of the hotness or coldness of a body. The temperature of a body determines the direction of the flow of energy. The SI unit of temperature is kelvin (K). °C is a commonly used unit of temperature.
- MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS – PART 2The viscous drag increases with increases velocity of the body, but it is found that the body after attaining certain velocity starts moving with a constant velocity called terminal velocity.
- MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS – PART 1The materials that can flow are called fluids. Liquids and gases are collectively known as fluids. Unlike a solid, a fluid has no definite shape of its own.
