Tesla Launches New Roadster… into Space!

"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.

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.

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.
