Elon Musk founded private space agency SpaceX made history on February 7 when it successfully launched the world's most powerful rocket "Falcon Heavy", strapped on with a Tesla Roadster auto with a mannequin dressed in a space suit in its front seat.
Flown at about half-payload like Falcon 9, Falcon Heavy should be able to send about 29 tons to the space station, far larger than a fully loaded Dragon capsule, with first stage reusability. SpaceX has not released any specs on the suit's materials or functionality, however, beyond what Musk told reporters in a press conference on Tuesday (Feb. 6): "It definitely works", Musk said. "Musk's message is a bit ambiguous", Rob Weryk, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, said in an email.
That is something to turn your head at. That's about 24 times less expensive than the space shuttle.
Meanwhile, it is interesting and hopeful that it is not related to NASA because it helps prove the importance of space travel and exploration.

The assailant, 25-year-old Moroccan national Ayoub El Khazzani , did not enter the train vehicle wielding weapons while shirtless. A certain blunt power is guaranteed by the facts of the story, and Eastwood doesn't obviously try for anything more than that.
A rocket capable of carrying a payload over 20 metric tonnes is classified under the Heavy-Lift Launch Vehicle (HLLV) category.
The president of the Mars Society, a space advocacy group intent on exploring and settling Mars, cheered SpaceX's achievement _ and reduced price. Those are not the kind of figures a company or its investors like to see, though Tesla pinned the high number costs associated with producing its Model 3 electric auto. In a statement during Wednesday's Q4 earnings call, the Must noted that the company is looking to build a tunnel between its 901 Page Ave. seat factory in Fremont to the main Tesla Factory roughly 3 miles away at 45500 Fremont Blvd. He's in charge of the carmaker as well as the private space company.

Porter had been a rare staffer inside the White House who knew Washington , was widely respected and was seen as good at his job. On Thursday, amid the growing controversy, Shah said Porter had cleaned out his desk that morning and would not be back.
"We collectively assumed that the numbers on Musk's tweet were based on telemetry, and that they'd know best", says Andy Rivkin, a planetary astronomer at Johns Hopkins University who studies asteroids. Almost two years ago, taking the industry by surprise, Musk proclaimed Tesla would produce 500,000 vehicles in 2018, mostly Model 3s, a six-fold increase over 2016 levels. They let us escape and imagine what life is like in space and on other planets. In space, no-one can hear you sing. Conceivably, the Falcon Heavy could even transport people to the moon, at a fraction of the expected cost of an SLS launch.
One Space can squeeze the cost of launching micro-satellites to about US$10,000, Shu added. This is more than true especially with Musk's name tagged on to it. That's about $4.1 million per delivered metric ton or $1,875 per delivered pound.

Snapchat owner Snap soared 20.6 percent after it reported surging growth in users and revenue in its latest quarter. Gold fell $7, or 0.5 percent, to $1,329.50 an ounce and silver dipped 9 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $16.58 an ounce.
If you hope to someday take a profile pic that looks as majestic as the convertible-driving, spacesuit-wearing mannequin known as Starman that was just launched into space, we have some bad news for you. It's a sustainable and affordable system dedicated to deep space exploration, including crewed flights to Mars. We would be doing ourselves an injustice if we did not study the galaxy above us.
