The Launch Of The Falcon Heavy Rocket Into Space Is What The World Needs Right Now
SpaceX has made us look up to the sky in awe for years now. Watching one of his rockets take off and land on platforms in the ocean is incredible. But the launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket carrying a Tesla convertible is so cool that it’s almost impossible to comprehend it happening randomly on a Tuesday.
Watching this takes me back to early grade school where my 2nd grade teacher took us all into the library where the only computer with a CD player was. We watched the Space Shuttle take off on Encarta — an old type of Wikipedia on CD. It’s what all of us wanted to watch if we had computer time. This is beyond that. Both boosters landed simultaneously like it was out of a futuristic movie. It almost looked like it was fake because it was so overwhelming to the eyes.
Please, take some time out of your day to watch the future of space. Watch all of it. I can’t stress that enough.
UPDATE: Check out the moment the two boosters land at the same time. The amount of math involved to make that happen makes my head hurt.
