After watching Falcon Heavy's successful launch and recapture of its boosters, the sight of seeing 'Starman' (a dummy) in Elon Musk's personal Tesla slowly recede from Earth's orbit into deep space. It's like something straight out of science fiction. I love it :D
There's a live cam sending footage back, and its currently being livestreamed on YouTube.
Musk hopes to be sending people around the moon, and to Mars in the next decade. This was a big step towards that goal.
There's actually a car in space right now, flying away from the Earth at thousands of miles an hour. Crazy stuff...
Well done, SpaceX!
Here's a link to the live feed if you happen to see this post while the footage is still being streamed.
