Re: Live View Elon Musk Tesla Car In Space


If ever things should start to feel hopeless, remember that there is a sportscar playing David Bowie in space. That should get you back where you need to be.

Also, the dual landing of the boosters was so incredibly I don't think it's credible. Makes me think the whole thing is fake. I really need to make my way to the next launch to see it with my own eyes.

You've been hanging in the basement too long.

Got tinfoil?

Re: Live View Elon Musk Tesla Car In Space


I'm not actually questioning it, but did you watch it?

It was so perfect I honestly cannot wrap my head around how human beings could program or fabricate something to do that. I consider myself to be pretty good at my job, and I still rely on painter's putty to get me out of jams. These guys just straight up fired a car into space, then had their rockets heel at their side like some trained show dogs.

Re: Live View Elon Musk Tesla Car In Space


How can I be expected to consider myself a productive member of society when there's people out here engineering this stuff and I still occasionally get my belt loops stuck on the latch of my van door?

His Bowie tunes were only going to play for 6hrs or so and then the batteries die.
I can't believe he didn't have some solar cells to keep it charged so it would play for eternity, or until the sun explodes.

Re: Live View Elon Musk Tesla Car In Space


I can't wrap my head around the car in space deal. Was the car inside a capsule that broke apart after it got up up and away? I'd thought a car would burn up on the lift off. And what good is car traveling thru space? Does it have sensors that it will send back info from Mars and beyond? Yes it looks cool as did the boosters coming back for an upright landing.

We've definitely come along way from the chimps orbiting the earth when I was a kid.

The only marketing I see is the guy is a complete arrogant self absorbed douchbag engaged in conspicuous consumption. That money couldn't have gone to anything useful besides fluffing his ego? How about a pay raise for employees? All satellites comes down eventually, it may or may not totally burn up on reentry. I hope it lands on his mansion.

: Money well spent, I'd say. The car stunt demonstrated their capability and generated a ton of free press coverage. They invest a lot of money to advance technology, new industries and create jobs. Sounds like the epitome of the American dream.

Exactly what capability does it demonstrate to you? We've been putting things in space for a long time. Even went to the moon and left a car there. We have a mini one on Mars now. The American dream for me isn't watching some fat cat get off on himself.

It shows a successful launch and deployment in a media savvy way, cost-effectiveness via the booster returns, and advances the coverage of their payload capacity. It's a good story.

I read that it will be destroyed by radiation within 6 months.

I think this demonstrates what the privater sector can accomplish...even though it was with government our money.

My guess is that anyone considering putting something into obit is going to know what payloads are feasible or not. The stunt was designed to dazzle mouth breathers and that's about it.

Ok, so what? They got the added free coverage as intended.

Dilly dilly.

Re: Live View Elon Musk Tesla Car In Space


While I think it's cool (more the reusable boosters/return), having a hard time reconciling some of the lighting from a sun that can fit over a million earths in it...

It seems interesting to me that the whole side of the earth facing the sun is lit up but the car that's between them isn't?
