From the SpaceX website:

Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft.

The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk to revolutionize space transportation and ultimately make it possible for people to live on other planets. Today, SpaceX is advancing the boundaries of space technology through its Falcon launch vehicles and Dragon spacecraft.

The company’s prototype rocket, Falcon 1, was the first privately developed liquid-fueled rocket to reach orbit. The more powerful Falcon 9 rocket debuted with back-to-back successful flights in June and December of 2010. The December 2010 flight included the first flight of the Dragon spacecraft, making SpaceX the first commercial company to send a spacecraft to orbit and return it safely to Earth.
