Tesla Launches New Roadster… into Space!

Must Watch The SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch Video On Your 4K TV

"It's just a matter of time", Musk said on a conference call with analysts. He's the world's 40th richest person, worth $21.4 billion, according to Bloomberg. DuPont also received a bump when the space program started using its material, Teflon, on heat shields and space suits. Relatively affordable, rapid access to space will make true exploration of the solar system possible. A misfire on the center booster caused it to miss its landing pad on a drone ship in the Atlantic, the only obvious flaw in what was otherwise a remarkable test for SpaceX and a promising new era in space flight. "The company was founded in 2002 to revolutionise space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets", said the company.

Where as Falcon Heavy is now the world's most powerful rocket, it still can't quite compete with the sheer power that was produced by NASA's original Saturn V Moon rocket back in the 60s and 70s.

But it was more than just watching the rocket blast into space that caught our attention.

There was one glitch during the launch. Multiple customers that have had deposits placed on the Model 3 cars since 2016 are reporting that they received an email stating that the vehicle will be delivered in "late 2018", while others are being informed that they'll have to wait until "early 2019", to receive the auto they paid for years previously.

Winter Olympics 2018: CAS dismisses 47 appeals from Russian athletes, coaches
A decision is expected on Thursday over the eligibility of some Russian athletes to take part in the Pyeongchang Olympics . The 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang is just days away and there are tons of facts to know before they get started.

Earlier this week, entrepreneur Elon Musk and his SpaceX program successfully launched the Falcon Heavy rocket into orbit. The auto did not go in the right direction.

The asteroid belt lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter as they circle the Sun. The auto is sending back video that people are able to watch online.

Kim Jong Un's sister met with South Korea's president
The delegation of 22 officials from the North arrived on Friday in order to attend the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics. Athletes from the two countries marched side by side during the opening ceremony and have formed a joint women's hockey team.

But SpaceX reportedly offered NASA and the Air Force a chance to put a payload on the rocket at no cost before deciding to launch the vehicle. Richard Branson, the billionaire founder of the Virgin Group, has a commercial space company called Virgin Galactic.

Business Insider contacted SpaceX and NASA for more details about the offer (which was worth about $90 million) and why the opportunity was declined, but we didn't receive a response before this story was published. The bottom line is that there is definitely a market for commercial space companies. Tyres will have deflated or burst, and airbags will have gone off unless they were already removed or deactivated. NASA has contracted SpaceX to transport some of their astronauts into space.

Chahal, Yadav simply unbelievable, says Kohli
And now they are making a "very strong case" for themselves for inclusion in Test cricket too, according to captain Virat Kohli . This is largely due to their inability to read Chahal and Kuldeep. "Unfortunately, a lot of us have not picked their googlies".

Even with the new, corrected trajectory, these numbers and time frames are not set in stone. Musk still hopes to see a manned trip to Mars in his lifetime.
