TWI technology used for ground-breaking SpaceX flight

3 Key Takeaways From Tesla, Inc.'s Fourth-Quarter Shareholder Letter

The successful launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket is a game-changer that could actually save NASA and the future of space exploration.

Elon Musk launched his personal Tesla Roadster with the Falcon Heavy launch with the dummy driver starman on the wheel. The red electric convertible was the unorthodox cargo aboard his company's brand new Falcon Heavy rocket during a test flight on Tuesday.

Oppenheimer, one of Tesla's more optimistic research shops, says the company continues to "wade through the weeds" while production delays remain.

Having overshot its planned Mars orbit, Elon Musk's cherry red roadster is hurtling on in space towards the asteroid belt nearer Jupiter.

Future of the auto in space: Musk claims that the vehicle is capable of drifting in space for billions of years.

With 27 engines, the Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in the world. That what an 80-hour work week on California's minimum wage gets you ($10.50 an hour plus overtime).

Live Science has reported that the auto will face a whole host of problems in space, especially after SpaceX reported that the vehicle is heading for an asteroid belt.

Congratulations keep pouring in to Musk and SpaceX. But the space agency viewed commercial development of this rocket as "competition" and refused their offer.

Establishing a colony on Mars is Musk's stated long-term goal and Falcon Heavy is one step in the ambitious project he outlined a year ago. It broadcasted first four hours of its voyage to Earth. Shortly after the launch, two of the rocket's side boosters fell back to earth and successfully landed so they could be used again.

Billings explains a Falcon Heavy rocket will be surprisingly cheap to purchase, with a price tag of around $90 million.

Falcon Heavy's successor - and the SpaceX rocket that could make an unmanned mission to Mars - would be the irreverently-named rocket now known as BFR, or "Big Fucking Rocket". Of course, 1969 was also the year that Apollo 11 took the first two humans to the surface of the moon, so it is perhaps apt that this latest "leap for mankind' also pays homage to this historic date".

SpaceX is competing with Boeing to be the first to send Americans into orbit from US soil again, something that hasn't happened since NASA's last shuttle flight. The rocket blasted off with the force of five million pounds of thrust. "We're not totally buying that", Rusch said.
