SpaceX has a big launch today that will see it send the very first Falcon Heavy rocket into orbit…hopefully. The payload for this test launch is Elon Musk’s own Tesla Roadster with a prototype of the SpaceX spacesuit sitting behind the wheel.
The launch is set to happen today, and chances are it’s going to blow up. At least that’s what Musk has said in the past. He figures if it leaves the launch pad before exploding it will be a win.
It’s sad that the Roadster inside might get blown to bits, but during the launch, it will become the fastest car in history reaching over 22,000 mph. I hope the launch works, this will be cool.
