On Tuesday, Elon Musk launched some stuff into space.

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) reported after market closure on Wednesday a lower-than-expected net loss and significantly slower cash-burn rate for Q4, while it confirmed its target to have weekly Model 3 production at 5,000 cars by the end of Q2. It's the world's most powerful operational rocket.

Unfortunately, the main central core was not as lucky, as its attempt to land on a drone ship failed when two of its engines failed to ignite, causing to crash into the water at about 300 miles per hour near the drone ship.

One day Earthlings may make it to Mars.

For the longest time I thought Elon Musk was a male fragrance, one I'd never wear. What is the time-horizon for such plans? Since then, the agency has relied on Russian spacecraft.

Others believe that the rocket's boosters, two of which reentered the Earth's atmosphere and landed safely, were responsible. It's colossal motivation for innovators from all over the world, a solution of global tasks, which is certainly positive. "Taxpayers footed the bill for Solyndra's losses-yet got hardly any of Tesla's profits", Mazzucato notes.

Tesla, when informing reservation holders that delivery dates had been "adjusted to a slightly later window", said it was working hard to meet demand, according to Bloomberg. There are still no large payloads or systems that can be easily carried by the SpaceX BFR. This kind of research is inherently risky, and the vast majority of this kind of protean R&D (research and development) fails. "So it'll be pretty easy to just have a tunnel, do an automated conveyance from seats to the factory". Like the Falcon Heavy, he used smaller-scale products to work his way up to this point.

Musk was forced to scale back expectations in July of last year, to just 20,000 Model 3 vehicles by last December.

Its technical achievements - whether in batteries, electric drivetrains or progress towards autonomous driving - are rapidly being matched by a vehicle industry now racing to go electric.

The image of Starman cruising through space behind the wheel of his bright red Tesla was both mind-blowing and comical, and the elated internet made some quality memes.

Tesla spent $787 million in capital expenditures in the fourth quarter. It will likely take several years after that for all of the testing to be completed and for reusability to be mastered.

There's some Cold War nostalgia to hoisting shiny objects into orbit-a telegenic show of America's technological supremacy.

Ukrainian Ruslan is the only powerful cargo aircraft capable of carrying a part of the main fairing of the rocket taking into account its dimensions and weight of 28.1 tons.
