Default Elon Musk: Falcon Heavy and His Roadster

Yesterday was a good day. Pisses me off that the government hasn't done shit to support space exploration in the past decade, and I was skeptical years back that a privatized entity could successfully pull it off and gain the precious momentum of success, but he/they did.

The marvels of hard science and engineering.

that's ok......sadly a lot of people in government don't see a need for space exploration of what it can do. Thankfully people like Musk have the sense and capital to forge forward.


awesome thing they did. Watching the two boosters land in tandem was bad ass.

He's a revolutionary. World-changing.

Also, the 3rd booster failed on landing on the sea-faring drone ship. Apparently hit the water at 300+mph very close to the platform, which may have sustained damage as well.

Still a successful mission. Big time.

Yeah Baby.
now I know why that roadster and astronaut launched by Elon looked so familiar (thought I was having a 'Mandela Effect'):

From the movie 'Heavy Metal' from back around 1981-82:
