This expansive, comprehensive, 1,869-word sample post was crafted by engineer, musician, and rock climber Marc S., who was recognized in our February writer spotlight. Besides being a legendary writer for BlogMutt, having sold 2,575 posts total, he has a background in engineering and physics and has been a space enthusiast for over three decades. This expertise made him the perfect candidate to cover in technical detail how the Falcon Heavy works, why it succeeded, and more, which can serve as an example of top-of-funnel or middle-of-funnel piece content for a very technical or engineering company who wants to stay in the conversation about current, timely topics.
In 1961, president John F. Kennedy committed the United States to putting astronauts on the moon within a decade. Eight years later, it happened. This remarkable achievement occurred despite limited space flight experience and the primitive technology available at the time. But during the 45 years that followed the last Apollo moon mission in 1972, humans never again ventured beyond earth orbit despite vastly improved technology.
