Falcon Heavy & Starman

  • Published on Mar 11, 2018
  • When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.
    Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.
    Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.

    And note I'm not saying anything bad I'm only just saying please Elon Musk pull this off so the spacecraft doesn't end up in the scrap Heap meaning the SOS system is dying SLS system that NASA has already paid for can you be a miracle worker to this would give you an opportunity to upgrade the Falcon 9 with the Raptor engine so the R&D on it gets even further along so it's on a spacecraft that can actually be viable it might be a little crazy but hey you got most of the technology already I don't like that help your R&D long to and I did get your flying car joke slash possibility they didn't understand that you were planning to fly the car in space but I would add just a booster engine something small push the car along and I have to be somewhat of a spacecraft it's what I'm thinking

    I have a serious challenge for SpaceX can you Salvage their Ryan system capsule in manage to put all the equipment that they have already bought from NASA into space my thought was for uihlein muskies why can't you add two more boosters to the Falcon heavy to go for a falcon heavy Falcon 9 heavy into extreme in upgrade the fairing so you can salvage the SOS is spacecraft and give NASA's some form of way towards it watch it on top of upgrade the center core to your current Raptor engine would sound pretty good I'd like to see that fly but that's just the challenge take it with a grain of salt I'm not trying to boss you around because I'm just a grunt in the government employee at a school called Sky Way e Elementary that has a rocket as a logo in electrum note I am a space cadet how long lines I like things that fly long ones rocketry thank you for listening to my rambling Daryl gross sunny out

    Elon, will you ever retire, and do you feel like you've got to the point where you're just reusing the ashes that you have already burned. This is generally just a thought I have been having. I was just wondering if anyone else thought this. And as always looking forward to future space x projects.

  • tankrage17

    i noticed people have overlooked 1 thing . the question of life outside earth has bin answered by elon munsk, " Created by humans " ? why would anyone put a message like that on a car he launched into space ? why not just Elon musk or something else or nothing written on the pcb board of the car ? he basically tells us indirectly there is life outside earth or else no one would even bother to put " made on earth by humans " if life didn't exist outside earth. that said

    we can either ignore what we see or we can accept what we see, but this is wat i saw, the government, NASA they all did cover up photo's over the years, afraid people would find out about alien life, hell even the internet is exploded by false alien claims or abductions.

    This is as real as it can get folks, lets say i wouldn't even bother typing this if i wouldn't want to share it . Elon musk did the same ! he wroted something no one would ever write down if he didn't believe alien life exists . its all hidden behind "made on earth by humans " he doesn't say specific created by a team of humans or created by mixed colored humans or what the fuck ever, no he means plainly all of us humans, well if i was an alien and i found this car in space and i would read it i would assume as an alien, the humans of the entire planet earth created this car . not just 1 person, that would be the last thing comming up my mind .

  • How Does it Really Work

    This video was made by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of _Westworld_ TV series. The song is, of course, "Life on Mars?" by David Bowie:

    It's a God-awful small affair
    To the girl with the mousy hair
    But her mummy is yelling no
    And her daddy has told her to go

    But her friend is nowhere to be seen
    Now she walks through her sunken dream
    To the seat with the clearest view
    And she's hooked to the silver screen

    But the film is a saddening bore
    For she's lived it ten times or more
    She could spit in the eyes of fools
    As they ask her to focus on

    Sailors fighting in the dance hall
    Oh man, look at those cavemen go
    It's the freakiest show
    Take a look at the lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy
    Oh man, wonder if he'll ever know
    He's in the best selling show
    Is there life on Mars?

      The initial orbit was approximately 200 x 7000 km, during which the live stream was shown. Then the second stage engine fired one more time, and it started away from Earth. The very last picture was taken some time after the burn.
