Will Elon Musk's Rocket Launch a New Space Race?

Falcon Heavy, billed as the most powerful rocket in the world, lifted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Tuesday, Feb. 6. Musk put a dent in those hopes when he tweeted that the Tesla Roadster had overshot its orbit path and was believed to be careening towards the asteroid belt, though experts now believe that Starman will reach a distance of about 160 million miles from the Sun.

So ... was the car bound for Mars? The pipes would explode, and anything rubber would freeze and crack. In April, the Science Center is opening a new special exhibition, "Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission", focused on the lunar landing and featuring the Command Module Columbia and 20 artifacts from the mission, including Buzz Aldrin's gloves and helmet.

So while Musk's Roadster orbiting Earth initially sounded like something frivolous, when we actually got to see it, you know. orbiting Earth, like something out of the "Radar Rider" opening sequence from the 1981 grownup animated movie "Heavy Metal," it was quite mesmerizing. All that costs money, which Tesla is burning through at a fast clip. The Reserve Bank collects data on a variety of economic indicators, such as employment levels and inflation rate (sense), analyses the data to determine an interest rate (think), and then sets the interest rate (act). Blue Origin, a rival rocket company founded by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, is investing $200 million and creating more than 500 jobs for a manufacturing plant on the Space Coast.

The energy of stellar radiation can cause those bonds to snap. In fact, so common and widespread that it frequently goes unnoticed. In 2017, it surpassed Ford and General Motors to become, briefly, the most valuable car company in the country.

That's right. It has been almost half a century since humankind ended manned space flight beyond low Earth orbit, which is the altitude where the International Space Station is.

I knew instantly that I had to show a video of the spectacle to my grandson the next morning. The only problem is, it's currently on the wrong side of the Atlantic ocean. It must recognize that companies like SpaceX are out-competing government rocket programs.

It was the first demonstration flight for the SpaceX megarocket. It consists of two telescopes, 100 miles apart, which automatically scan the whole sky several times every night looking for moving objects. The payload is a car manufactured by Musk's other company, Tesla. Leave the rest up to them.

One day Earthlings may make it to Mars.
