My cousins live in Florida (one in Sanford and the other in Cocoa Beach) and they've posted pictures of the end trails of the rocket.  It was cool to see!

But this, the actually newsworthy thing...?



... Most of them either didn't get it or didn't believe it happened.  Huh? Especially the Tesla Roadster in space raised eyebrows. People thought it was CGI and not actually a car in space headed for Mars.

I gave up...

It's still not clear to me how the photo of the car and 'driver' were taken. Haven't found anything about how the photo was taken. Do you know?

I'm sure the rest of the galaxy will be impressed with Elon's used automobile and the never-been-alive spaceman in the driver's seat. Blink
Do you think he left his automobile registration and insurance card in glovebox? Wink

^ Never mind. My GF sent this link to me:

From Snopes.com

Is This Car Really in Space?
A series of images showing a Tesla Roadster looking down on earth from space are real.
TRUE

ORIGIN
If you were to ask us prior to 6 February 2018 if an image of an automobile in space was real, wed reply, with almost no hesitation, that the photograph was likely a fake. But after that date? Well, theres a chance that wed be looking at an authentic image of Tesla Roadster.

No, people would rather talk about the Kardashians...  Crap I tried to explain the whole Falcon Heavy thing to my friends and why it's a huge thing. Most of them either didn't get it or didn't believe it happened.  Huh? Especially the Tesla Roadster in space raised eyebrows. People thought it was CGI and not actually a car in space headed for Mars.

The middle clip of the boosters landing in unison still amazes me. Im not sure what to think of SpaceX tho and what the long term implications of a private sector company having this sort of power. I can see the benefits but I can also see it getting out of control and misused. Time will tell

Did anyone else notice the change in page layout of the non-mobile version of Twitter today? Everything suddenly reverted back to previous layout.

I found this site while searching for information that would help me pronounce a given name that I had never seen before.
Shows spelling, origin and audio file for pronunciation.
If you need to know how to pronounce a name go here!
