Elon Musk successfully launched a car into space with the world’s most powerful rocket

After numerous failed attempts and years of delay, yesterday was the day. Elon Musk’s SpaceX succeeded in launching its most powerful rocket ever, the Falcon Heavy, into pace. It’s a revolutionary rocket in the world of space travel since Elon and his team managed to return two of the three boosters back to Earth, making it a more sustainable (and cheaper) rocket compared to its competitors. Genius! Millions of people watched the launch live:

Elon wouldn’t be Elon without adding a few fun details. He might be a real entrepreneur but more importantly he has a sense of humour, which he also demonstrated last week by launching a flamethrower. Instead of just launching a rocket into space, he also placed a Tesla Roadster inside including a dummy while playing David Bowie’s Space Oddity. “[The roadster will] get about 400 million km away from Earth, and it’ll be doing 11km/s,” Making Tesla literally the fastest car ever.
