Their wide eyes, huge smiles, and yes, dropped jaws, give hope to a new generation of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and passionate supporters of the space industry. The Flat Earth Society is passively implying that the launch may have been less than truthful. Inside the car is a dummy in a spacesuit.
The Flat-Earther Society recently tweeted, 'People who believe that the Earth is a globe because "they saw a car in space on the Internet" must be the new incarnation of "It's true, I saw it on TV!"
"We managed to take dozen of images, and we used a group of them to show the trail of the object across the stars". Musk splits his time between SpaceX and Tesla, with his official home in LA.
Virgin Galactic, the space company founded by Richard Branson, and Amazon founder Jeffrey P. Bezos' Blue Origin also could fly humans for the first time this year, on suborbital jaunts that could reach the edge of space. 'I didn't think too much of it, Harvey said to Metro US. If you took a closer look at the Falcon Heavy rocket, you'd see that each thruster was made up of several smaller engines, rather than fewer larger engines. In a great article in The Atlantic on February 8, Marina Koren brings together information from astronomers, who were also talking on Twitter on launch day, following Musk and checking his facts.

But with the Falcon Heavy launch and the Tesla Roadster's journey to space, the two companies are effectively already conjoined.
But now experts say that probably won't happen.
As incredible as it seems, there's now a Tesla Roadster in space. The rocket is also set to carry out a launch mission for the U.S. Air Force. It'll continue to complete one full orbit about every 19 months. But it can launch things direct to Pluto and beyond.
As amazing as the Falcon Heavy rocket launch was, it's going to pale in comparison to the next offering from SpaceX, the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR... just needs a 9000 at the end if you ask me ).
The Falcon Heavy's launch has had many fascinated and excited over its prospects for space flight.
As the council, which was reconstituted under Trump, convenes, one major question it will have to grapple with is: "How can we best spend our resources as a nation to ensure the most robust space portfolio we can", said Phil Larson, an assistant dean at the University of Colorado at Boulder and a former spokesperson at SpaceX. Click into Jonathan McDowell's tweet, below, and read some of the comments, for a good discussion.
Had the mission scrubbed Tuesday, "I'd be back Wednesday", Bill Banks said, showing that local business owners realize onlookers will return again and again. So the "soft" tie-up of SpaceX and Tesla appears to be the way to go.
