Initial data: As his source data, the expert used information from the site http://www.spacex.com, where it is indicated: The Falcon 9 rocket takes off from the start-up platform at cape Canaveral, puts payload into orbit, while the first stage returns to the shore site by itself - it lands vertically on the platform floating in the ocean (see video № 1, 2), http://www.spacex.com/news/2013/03/31/reusability-key-making-human-life-multi-planetary

Analysis of the program SpaceX, Falcon 9
In order to determine the technical feasibility of this project, the expert conducted a comparative study with a similarly known rocket, which is actively used to bring satellites into Earth's orbit. As a comparative sample, the technical data of the Proton-M rocket are taken by an expert, https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Протон_(ракета-носитель)
Proton-M rocket (three stages)
The payload, which the rocket puts into orbit - 7100 kg per orbit 200 km at the start from Baikonur; The mass of the rocket at the launch is 705 000 kg. Six first-stage engines with a total thrust of 10026 kN We divide the thrust by the mass and get 14.22 kN/t
Comparison of missiles Falcon 9 and Proton-M
The claimed characteristics of the Falcon 9 missile have a thrust of 13.85 kilo-tons per ton of launch rocket mass, and the Proton-M rocket thrust is 14.22 kilo-tons per ton. Those. The Proton rocket has more thrust per unit mass, and it yields less useful mass into orbit. In this case, the Proton rocket is a three-stage rocket, and the Falcon 9 rocket is a two-stage rocket. Accordingly, the separation of the first stage of the Proton occurs much closer to the launch site than that of the Falcon 9. This is how the flight trajectory for the Soyuz and Proton rockets and for the separated stages look in a three-dimensional view (see Fig. 1).
Considering the flight trajectory of the first stage of the rocket, it is clearly visible that after separating the stage, it is located not only at a considerable height from the surface of the Earth, but also far from the starting point for a considerable distance along the horizon. In this case, the stage has a high speed of movement from the starting point. Thus, to return to the launch site, the first stage of the missile, which actually does not have planes for airborne planning, must extinguish its speed with the help of rocket engines and again accelerate. The return stage must have: - a lot of lateral engines to ensure stabilization and turns in space; - on-board computer system for calculation of flight parameters and engine control; - fuel with an oxidizer, necessary to perform work on braking, acceleration and landing. The site of the project http://www.spacex.com shows the technology of the stage landing. (See video 3)
When carrying out the research of program SpaceX, Falcon 9, it allows you to draw the following conclusions, it’s established: 1. The first stage of the Falcon 9 missile does not have the technical capability to return to the launch site and moreover to return to the hore. 2. Video recordings on the website http://www.spacex.com are falsifications. 3. Falcon 9 missile has less fuel, less take-off weight, smaller engine thrust per unit mass, which prevents the Falcon 9 rocket from bringing into Earth orbit a payload greater than the Proton-M rocket. 4. The SpaceX project is a falsification.
The project's website states that this project is headed by Elon Musk, born in 1971, a photograph of which is presented in the Wikipedia Internet encyclopedia (see Figure 2).

As the initial data, the expert used information from the site http://www.spacex.com On the Internet page, the technical parameters of the declared program are posted, where the most significant are the following data: Falcon 9 rocket (two stages) The payload that the rocket puts into orbit - 8,300 kg The rocket mass at launch is 549 054 kg
"The first stage of the Falcon 9 includes nine Merlin engines and aluminum-lithium alloy tanks containing liquid oxygen and rocket kerosene (RP-1) .After ignition, the holding system before shipment ensures that all engines are tested at full throttle before the missile is released Then, with a draft of more than five 747 with full power, the Merlin engines launch rockets into space. "
The Merlin engines, nine with a total gross thrust of 7607 kN
The thrust of the engines is divided into the starting mass, receive 13.85 kN/t

There is also his biography, which on the English version contains the following information:
In March 1999, Musk co-founded X.com, an online financial services and e-mail payment company, with US$10 million from the sale of Zip2. One year later, the company merged with Confinity, which had a money transfer service called PayPal. The merged company focused on the PayPal service and was renamed PayPal in 2001. PayPal's early growth was driven mainly by a viral marketing campaign where new customers were recruited when they received money through the service. Musk was ousted in October 2000 from his role as CEO (although he remained on the board) due to disagreements with other company leadership, notably over his desire to move PayPal's Unix-based infrastructure to Microsoft Windows. In October 2002, PayPal was acquired by eBay for US$1.5 billion in stock, of which Musk received US$165 million. Before its sale, Musk, who was the company's largest shareholder, owned 11.7% of PayPal's shares.

For comparison, it is necessary to consider how similar Proton-M engines work. With the close crazed thrust of the engines, it is even visually clear that the expiring gases - the flame of the rocket engines are not comparable to each other in videos 2 and 3.

In 2001, Musk conceptualized "Mars Oasis"; a project to land a miniature experimental greenhouse on Mars, containing food crops growing on Martian regolith, in an attempt to regain public interest in space exploration. In October 2001, Musk travelled to Moscow with Jim Cantrell (an aerospace supplies fixer), and Adeo Ressi (his best friend from college), to buy refurbished ICBMs (Dnepr) that could send the envisioned payloads into space. The group met with companies such as NPO Lavochkin and Kosmotras; however, according to Cantrell, Musk was seen as a novice and was consequently spat on by one of the Russian chief designers, and the group returned to the United States empty-handed. In February 2002, the group returned to Russia to look for three ICBMs, bringing along Mike Griffin, who had worked for the CIA's venture capital arm, In-Q-Tel; NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory; and was just leaving Orbital Sciences, a maker of satellites and spacecraft.

With US$100 million of his early fortune, Musk founded Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, in May 2002. Musk is chief executive officer (CEO) and chief technology officer (CTO) of the Hawthorne, California-based company. SpaceX develops and manufactures space launch vehicles with a focus on advancing the state of rocket technology. The company's first two launch vehicles are the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 rockets (a nod to Star Wars' Millennium Falcon), and its first spacecraft is the Dragon (a nod to Puff the Magic Dragon). In seven years, SpaceX designed the family of Falcon launch vehicles and the Dragon multipurpose spacecraft. In September 2008, SpaceX's Falcon 1 rocket became the first privately funded liquid-fueled vehicle to put a satellite into Earth orbit. On May 25, 2012, the SpaceX Dragon vehicle berthed with the ISS, making history as the first commercial company to launch and berth a vehicle to the International Space Station.
In 2006, SpaceX was awarded a contract from NASA to continue the development and test of the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle and Dragon spacecraft in order to transport cargo to the International Space Station,[not in citation given] followed by a US$1.6 billion NASA Commercial Resupply Services program contract on December 23, 2008, for 12 flights of its Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft to the Space Station, replacing the US Space Shuttle after it retired in 2011. Astronaut transport to the ISS is currently handled solely by the Soyuz, but SpaceX is one of two companies awarded a contract by NASA as part of the Commercial Crew Development program, which is intended to develop a US astronaut transport capability by 2018. On 22 December 2015, SpaceX successfully landed the first stage of its Falcon rocket back at the launch pad. This was the first time in history such a feat had been achieved by an orbital rocket and is a significant step towards rocket reusability lowering the costs of access to space. This first stage recovery was replicated several times in 2016 by landing on an Autonomous spaceport drone ship, an ocean based recovery platform.
SpaceX is both the largest private producer of rocket motors in the world, and holder of the record for highest thrust-to-weight ratio for any known rocket motor. SpaceX has produced more than 100 operational Merlin 1D engines, currently the world's most powerful motor for its weight. The relatively immense power to weight ratio allows each Merlin 1D motor to vertically lift the weight of 40 average family cars. In combination, the 9 Merlin engines in the Falcon 9 first stage produces anywhere from 5.8 to 6.7 MN (1.3 to 1.5 million pounds) of thrust, depending on altitude.
Musk was influenced by Isaac Asimov's Foundation series and views space exploration as an important step in expanding-if not preserving-the consciousness of human life. Musk said that multiplanetary life may serve as a hedge against threats to the survival of the human species.
Musk's goal is to reduce the cost of human spaceflight by a factor of 10. In a 2011 interview, he said he hopes to send humans to Mars' surface within 10-20 years. In Ashlee Vance's biography, Musk stated that he wants to establish a Mars colony by 2040, with a population of 80,000. Musk stated that, since Mars' atmosphere lacks oxygen, all transportation would have to be electric (electric cars, electric trains, Hyperloop, electric aircraft). Space X intends to launch a Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon Heavy in 2018 to soft-land on Mars - this is intended to be the first of a regular cargo mission supply-run to Mars building up to later crewed flights. Musk stated in June 2016 that the first unmanned flight of the larger Mars Colonial Transporter (MCT) spacecraft is aimed for departure to the red planet in 2022, to be followed by the first manned MCT Mars flight departing in 2024. In September 2016, Musk revealed details of his plan to explore and colonize Mars. By 2016, Musk's private trust holds 54% of SpaceX stock, equivalent to 78% of voting shares.
Analyzing the biography of Elon Musk, no traces of his higher technical education have been observed, which would allow him to perform engineering and technical work for the project in the field of rocket engineering. His biography contains information on work in the field of information technology and manipulation of shares in financial markets.
From the information on the Wikipedia page, it follows that in December 2008, NASA signed with the company a contract worth $ 1.6 billion for 12 launches to the International Space Station (ISS) that could not be produced. It is advisable to bring a criminal case under articles on fraud and embezzlement of the US budget.
If a representative of Roskosmos Corporation, Russian government, Russian mass media confirm the facts of connecting the Dragon unit to the ISS, it is advisable to involve them in the criminal case as accomplices in the crime of embezzling USD 1.6 billion ($).

"On December 21, 2015, SpaceX first landed a rocket first stage back on land.Falcon 9 launched out of SpaceX’s launch pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida carrying 11 communications satellites. As a secondary objective following the primary mission, the first stage completed a series of engine burns that steered it back toward land and slowed down its velocity, allowing the booster to softly touch down at SpaceX’s Landing Zone 1 at CCAFS. This represented the first time in history a rocket first stage landed back on Earth following an orbital mission".
The group met again with Kosmotras, and were offered one rocket for US$8 million, however, this was seen by Musk as too expensive; Musk consequently stormed out of the meeting. On the flight back from Moscow, Musk realized that he could start a company that could build the affordable rockets he needed. According to early Tesla and SpaceX investor Steve Jurvetson, Musk calculated that the raw materials for building a rocket actually were only 3 percent of the sales price of a rocket at the time. By applying vertical integration and the modular approach from software engineering, SpaceX could cut launch price by a factor of ten and still enjoy a 70-percent gross margin. Ultimately, Musk ended up founding SpaceX with the long-term goal of creating a "true spacefaring civilization".
