His company, SpaceX on May 30 became the world’s first commercial company to send humans into International Space Station.

But yes, it is true that Elon Musk worked for 18 years to accomplish this mission.
In a post-launch press conference held at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Saturday, he said, “It’s been 18 years working towards this goal, so it’s hard to believe that it’s happened.”
“I’m really quite overcome with emotion on this day, so it’s kind of hard to talk, frankly, he further said.
Musk was seen choked up with emotions after his organisation launched astronauts to space creating a history for May 30.
His comments came soon after SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the company’s Crew Dragon spacecraft was launched from Launch Complex 39A on NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station.
