Elon Musk Says SpaceX Will Now Start Working On 'Big F***ing Rocket'

Elon Musk Says SpaceX Will Now Start Working On 'Big F***ing Rocket'

Going by the irony and irreverence marking this endeavour, one is almost tempted to forget that the successful launch of the Falcon Heavy is simultaneously a great leap for mankind. However, the rocket carrying the car has overshot its trajectory, putting the car in an orbit that would extend to the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

"Tesla Roadster (spacecraft). Dummy payload from the first launch of SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch vehicle". Elon Musk, who founded SpaceX, the private enterprise responsible for launching the Falcon Heavy, said he hoped the launch would start a new "space race". It remains to be seen if Branson will be following in the footsteps of SpaceX by launching rockets into space. Plus, some space companies, like Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries, are working on technologies to mine water from asteroids someday.

Conspiracy theories have emerged online following the groundbreaking launch.

The company added that the only rocket to have had a higher payload capacity was the Saturn V moon rocket, last launched in 1973. AND to get those very large rockets to safely land back on Earth so they can be reused.

But space is not just the province of government. Its purpose is to help develop and fine-tune the way robots and humans interact in zero-gravity, with Toyota creating Kirobo's voice recognition functionality.

In fact the aluminum frame, glass and internal metals that aren't destroyed by collisions could last for millions or billions of years. Experts are wondering how long the car will last since it is being exposed to all of the harsh elements of space.

"We immediately spotted the Tesla Roadster, quite bright, around mag. 15.5", Masi wrote in a blog post.

Any time we write about the Tesla Semi electric truck and its much-better-than-expected specs, commenters rightly point out that Elon has a history of making big, bold claims and not necessarily delivering on schedule or on budget.
