Once A Space Nerd…

Today’s pair is in honor of SpaceX’s largely successful launch of its Falcon Heavy rocket. Twenty-seven engines powered the thing our if Earth’s gravity, and then delivered Elon Musk’s 2008 Tesla Roadster into deep orbit. If that’s not an achievement worthy of rocket socks in a age where it’s been 45 years since a human being set foot on a natural celestial object that wasn’t Terra Firma, well I don’t know what is. Musk’s Roadster will probably never actually reach Mars as intended (as it’s trapped in an elliptical solar orbit), but damn if it’s not cool to imagine the possibilities.

What do you think?
