I didn't think I'd get so emotional over that. Goodness that was awesome.

The imagery of that roadster with Starman behind the wheel heading off on its interplanetary journey is seriously one of the coolest effing things I've ever seen.

Bummer.

The mission wasn't a complete success.

The main core rocket either blew up or landed in the ocean.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/3k7nx9/what-happened-to-spacex-falcon-heavy-central-core-third-rocket


The people want to know what happened to the core of SpaceX’s biggest rocket.

About two hours after the rocket, the Falcon Heavy, launched, two of its three reusable rockets had successfully touched back down on their launchpads. But they’re only reusable if they don’t blow up, and the third, the center core engine, is officially unaccounted for.

The core was supposed to land on what SpaceX called a “drone ship” — a robotic, unmanned, floating landing pad — in the Atlantic Ocean. But in a SpaceX livestream of the launch, a voice announces, “We lost the center core." The third rocket didn’t land as intended, according to the Verge, although SpaceX has yet to confirm.

Update 7:54 P.M.

Musk confirmed the core crashed into the ocean during a press conference Tuesday evening.

Twitter, understandably, freaked out in the interim.

I really don't think it would be possible to one up a guy who can say he sent an electric car that he built into space on a rocket that he built.

Wait for the BFR. That is where they are pouring most of their resources into. Its supposed to be man rated so it could possibly carry a crew to Mars. Also its supposed to be 11-12 times more powerful than the Falcon Heavy.

That was beautiful on so many levels. I grew up reading authors like Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein. They would be shedding tears of joy.

I watch every one of the SpaceX tests. This was the best one yet...I had no idea they were going to synchronize booster landings. Hoooooly (bleep). Beautiful.
