Elon Musk arrives on Netflix with ‘Back to Space’, the story of SpaceX

Elon Musk, the multimillionaire of three nationalities, co-founder of PayPal, Hyperloop or Neuralink, Tesla Motors and SpaceX, among other leading technological initiatives, is a character with a great capacity to produce a lot of news; although they are not necessarily related to their commercial activities. So it’s no surprise that Netflix produced back in space (2022).

This documentary film, apart from the controversial personality of the businessman, which will surely attract many spectators, deals with the work of this SpaceX; and the commitment of his Elon Musk to give him a new impetus for space exploration. What greatly satisfy those of us who are already thinking of adventures like those of Isaac Asimov’s novels, for example.

It’s not an easy goal. Reviving the ambition to snoop around the cosmos, going back to the days when astronauts were viewed with great admiration as heroes, is a far cry from the current situation. With people busy or entertained by other problems; and some insisting that there are other pressing issues to be resolved before To look for.

But those who censor science programs like those of Elon Musk and SpaceX, who tend to discredit them with the huge budget that their fabulous activities entail, do not understand that the guarantee of human survival go through. Because our blue world is over, and there is no incompatibility between looking up and fighting for something better here.
