The Falcon Heavy rocket took off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 3:45PM ET yesterday. This was it’s first test flight, and while it was not 100% successful, it was judged to be a success and carried Musk’s Tesla Roadster into space.
The launch’s success moves Musk and SpaceX one giant step closer to reaching their stated goal of sending people to back to the Moon and onto Mars, and it opens the doors wider for private companies seeking to commercialize space travel.
Then there’s this. There is now a convertible car travelling at 18,000 mph through space.
