Two Falcon Heavy SpaceX rocket boosters landing in Florida

Two Falcon Heavy SpaceX rocket boosters landing in Florida

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk's personal Tesla Roadster auto, which is now floating in deep space, is heading towards an asteroid belt instead of Mars. The payload of a Tesla Roadster with a space-suited mannequin at the wheel was certainly indulgent; a clever and opportunistic marketing ploy with little scientific objective.

After launch, the Tesla cruised through space for a good six hours - a trip that was also live streamed by SpaceX. The businessman is sure that you have selected for the Falcon Heavy architecture is more secure than using the first stage of a smaller number of more powerful engines as the Falcon Heavy "to a half-dozen of the engines can fail, but the rocket will still be in orbit".

Currently, the vehicle is off course in heading towards the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Scholars have debated the reasons that made humans go "out of Africa", and some have mentioned an "exploration gene" that some humans carry: The same one that pushes people to climb Everest just "because it's there."Until a few years ago, landing on Mars seemed like a nice futuristic dream, hindered by experts repeating how hard and costly it would be". Musk's Space X launched an interesting rocket and we are wide-eyed with amazement.

The United States hasn't had a spacecraft capable of sending humans to orbit since NASA's Space Shuttle program retired in 2011. Launched this week, Musk's rocket is created to deliver a payload of 64 tons to a low-Earth orbit, similar to that of the Russian N-1. He said, "I think it looks so ridiculous and impossible". "And it's nearly like a road trip."A few months ago, Musk announced that he was planning to send two big equipment-carrying spacecraft to Mars in 2022, to be followed by one carrying astronauts in 2024".

Musk said he doesn't plan to fly people on the Heavy _ that will mainly be used to launch supersize satellites. This occurred, perhaps ironically, due to SpaceX's reputation for safely landing rocket boosters, and then putting them to further use. If development of the BFR is delayed - as Musk's projects have a tendency to be - certifying the Falcon Heavy for crewed mission could still be an option.

Rocket recycling is the key to SpaceX's launch cost-cutting strategy.

The president of the Mars Society, a space advocacy group intent on exploring and settling Mars, cheered SpaceX's achievement _ and reduced price.

But Musk said Tuesday that he's planning to hit NASA's latest target of launching astronauts on Crew Dragon by December. A first test flight for BFR could happen in "three or four years". It's ironic that some in the press choose to portray Elon Musk as an AI Luddite, when in fact Tesla may be one of the most sophisticated users of the technology. He's hoping that will encourage other companies and countries "to raise their sights and say, hey, we can do bigger and better, which is great".
