SpaceX aims to make history 3 more times in 2018

Starman's journey creates online frenzy after SpaceX launch

"We're building that foundation - or something similar to it - as described in those books".

Whatever about the merits of the payload, the synchronised theatre of the twin boosters successfully landing was a moment of scientific wonder requiring no adornment.

One of Musk's key takeaways from the Falcon Heavy's successful flight? In the driver's seat was a mannequin, named Starman, clad in a spacesuit.

Not much room in there for a merger.

The rocket is 70 meters high and integrates a triple structure.

Elon Musk certainly caught the world's attention this week when he launched a bright red sportscar into space, complete with a sign saying, 'Don't panic' in the dash. These engines are said to be more powerful, reliable, and efficient than their predecessors, but even with these advancements, Musk's new platform will require 31 of them to get the behemoth into the sky.

This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Business Insider. It's not a question whether it works or not.

The Tuesday launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket reflects the limitless bounds of ingenuity and brilliance of those daring to dream of a bigger, better tomorrow.

If you're Elon Musk, you up the ante. "Elon has done a lot to contribute to that".

So, for now, "it's all hands on deck for Crew Dragon", Musk said. The third booster was supposed to come back shortly afterward, but unfortunately it did not fire properly and was lost. Only the economics were missing.

They looked on as the nose cone housing the Tesla was stripped away, exposing the electric car to the vacuum of space as David Bowie's "Life on Mars" played, ushering it to orbit. A day after deserved jubilation in Cape Canaveral, Florida, it was back to the relatively mundane task of reporting Tesla's quarterly results.

Musk is expected to collect a $55.8 billion (£40 billion) bonus - probably be the largest ever - if he can build Tesla into a $650 billion company over the next decade.

And SpaceX does have one more thing to check off its to-do list before it can focus on BFR.

But Musk was more interested in talking about what SpaceX will build next.

"It's sort of like the way modern computer systems are set up", Musk explained. "It's better to use a large number of small engines", Musk concluded. Don't panic, indeed. With any luck, they'll be so charmed they won't destroy humanity to build an intergalactic freeway bypass. The rich mathematical field of feedback control theory sometimes provides a ready-to-use algorithm for the calculations comprising the "think" part of the feedback control loop. All that costs money, which Tesla is burning through at a fast clip. And then it's already working in Germany so that's going to be disassembled, brought out to the Gigafactory and reassembled and then go into operation at the Gigafactory.
