Falcon Heavy Launch Success!!

Watched it from the top of a parking garage at UCF. Completely amazing. I could see the boosters coming back to land as well.

Re: Falcon Heavy Launch Success!!

I was driving at launch time but listened-in through Sirius XM 'live'-ish. I love how Elon Musk casually gave it a 50/50 about blowing up on the pad And ALL THREE boosters flew home and landed safely, all on their own. Awesome shit.

Looking forward to pics of the Tesla roadster in space with the space suit dummy in the driver's seat. Reminiscent of the opening scene with the old Corvette in "Heavy Metal".

Here’s the live feed from in the car. It’s blank now, but you can scroll back and see it. Fucking incredible.

Too cool. I like the "Don't Panic" on the screen.

That's not a cheap photoshop job. That's an actual car in space with the earth in the background lmao

Re: Falcon Heavy Launch Success!!

It just occurred to me. This officially makes the Tesla Roadster the fastest road car in history by what.... 17,000 mph? 20,000 mph?

Re: Falcon Heavy Launch Success!!

This is cool shit . I watched the first Apollo launches and the first Moon landings and this is just as cool as they were in my eyes.
