Back to Earth: Tesla's losses grow with Model 3 delays

But he's accelerating development of an even bigger rocket for deep-space crews _ "a beast".

"That sounds like some pretty fun footage, so if the cameras didn't get blown up as well, then we'll put that out for a blooper reel", Musk said.

The Falcon Heavy jumbo rocket flying into space actually carried Musk's vehicle, Tesla Roadster, on it and has a sole passenger, a mannequin named Starman.

Falcon Heavy is able to lift 64 tonnes into orbit - the equivalent of five double-decker buses - which is just over twice the weight that can be lifted by the second-most powerful operational rocket, Delta IV Heavy. Here are three of the most telling insights from Tesla's fourth-quarter shareholder letter. "It's just a matter of time", he said.

That is something to turn your head at. Here's a video of the full launch and landing (skip to 21:30 for T-minus 30 seconds to launch, and 29:00 for the booster landing). SpaceX is taking our progress in space and taking it a step further. For now we've sent a cherry-red electric auto barrelling through space, with a mannequin named Starman at the wheel, listening to the David Bowie song Space Oddity on a loop.

Hernandez said she is fascinated by space and "what we can learn about it".

While collisions with micrometeorites and other space junk could leave the vehicle with dents and scars on its surface, the real threat comes from space radiation that can literally tear the auto apart, along with the mannequin.

For now, we'll have to wait and see if Tesla can finally hit its production ramp-up goals, and also watch if those government investigations go anywhere. SpaceX is helping us keep little boys and girls dreaming of becoming astronauts or traveling into space. These engines are said to be more powerful, reliable, and efficient than their predecessors, but even with these advancements, Musk's new platform will require 31 of them to get the behemoth into the sky.

People have always sat around their TV's, radios, or viewed rocket launches in person because they are such an exciting event. They let us escape and imagine what life is like in space and on other planets. Indeed, SpaceX will soon be joined in its space exploration ventures by Blue Origin (Jeff Bezos' spaceflight company) and NASA, both of which are now building their own big rockets.But the analogy I preferred was the one expressed by Marcelo Gleiser, the physicist and writer, who likened the fast-approaching human trip to Mars to the "out of Africa" moment, when humanity made a decision to move into Asia and then Europe. Musk managed to show the world once again that reusable rockets are the future in the exploration of the space industry.

There are few, true break-out ideas: perfecting what someone else has already tried is usually the name of the game.

This point is more impressive than launching the thing into space, tbh. We left class and I'm getting messages and emails saying, 'Hey, it's doing this now. We can not just stay in our little bubble that is Earth, instead, we must see what else is out there.
