Musk won't rest until he plants a flag on Mars

On Tuesday, SpaceX successfully landed two of the three "cores" of the Falcon Heavy after detaching from its upper stage. So they're clamoring to get some good shots of the roadster now.

Alas, no such luck. But the rest of the U.S. aerospace industry gets lots of government money, too, and so do European, Chinese, Japanese and Indian space programs.

For now, we'll have to wait and see if Tesla can finally hit its production ramp-up goals, and also watch if those government investigations go anywhere.

Other viewers were more sceptical, about the UFO, suggesting the mystery object could have been a piece of space junk or possibly a satellite.

Separately, Musk said that Jon McNeill, who had been head of the company's sales and service group, had left the company.

There had initially been concerns about whether Model 3 would cannibalize Model S and Model X. It seems the opposite is true. That was at the height of the Cold War, with America champing at the bit after the Soviets put the first man in space. The new version should launch this year, built by the Planetary Society; Bill Nye is one of the project's most outspoken advocates.

The couple split because "the timing wasn't right". Tesla just posted its biggest quarterly loss yet. If you believe in collaboration to produce quality neutral journalism for everyone, it is important that you sign up to support our work financially.

The short document available on NASA's HORIZONS Web-Interface about the Tesla Roadster is attached below. The payload of a Tesla Roadster with a space-suited mannequin at the wheel was certainly indulgent; a clever and opportunistic marketing ploy with little scientific purpose. The electric carmaker brought in almost $3.3 billion in 2017's fourth quarter, compared to $2.3 billion in 2016's fourth quarter.

Falcon Heavy essentially comprises three previously tested rockets strapped together to create one giant spacecraft. "It's just literally a normal car in space, which I kind of like the absurdity of that". But again: caveats, folks. However its solar business appears to be slumping, despite a recent partnership with Home Depot to sell rooftop solar arrays. For customers that are only interested in the most affordable Model 3, they might be out of luck.

So next stop Moon or even Mars?

He said: "In my opinion it's impossible to identify a black dot passing over the Earth".

The Soviet Union tried something similar in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Like over 400,000 other people, I have a Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model 3 reservation. This amount of carbon is a drop in the ocean compared to global industrial emissions as a whole, but if the SpaceX's plan for a rocket launch every two weekscomes to fruition, this amount of carbon (approximately 4,000 tonnes per year) will rapidly become a bigger problem. They are also creating futures where they are the one's maintaining the power, more power than the leaders of nations.

SpaceX, the galactic exploration company founded by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, has launched a rocket towards Mars carrying an interesting payload. But it fell woefully short on the Model 3, which went into production in July.

The self-made billionaire started Zip2 with his brother - a city guide software for newspapers - later selling it for $307 million (£220 million).
