Elon Musk on how Falcon Heavy will change space travel

Spread the love

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida yesterday carrying its first payload — a red Tesla roadster — into orbit. Loren Grush spoke to CEO Elon Musk about the launch and what this means for the future of space travel, as well as Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye. The Falcon Heavy now holds the title for the world’s most powerful rocket, and its launch marks the first time a vehicle this massive has ever been sent up by a commercial company.

    Wow! I've almost given up on Youtube. Until I saw this video.
    Great job Loren and team. You got a new subscriber.

    Sooooo, if Elon Musk is so incredible and great and forward-thinking and so hip and so green, then why didn't he use solar or wind energy to launch this rocket? Well? After all, those energies are the FUTURE and they're so incredible and they're going to replace all petroleum-based and coal-based energy, right?

    why is it not going straight up? weird, I wish they kept following it all the way until it reached "space"

    Any SpaceX nerds have stats on costings of BFR trips? Like, how would the cost of rocket fuel and other operating costs stack up against current aviation fuel/costs? Is BFR travel only going to be affordable by the super-rich? Or will it eventually become affordable for anyone who can afford air travel right now??

    Thing is none of this is even matters. Shadow government have technology way beyond this. We already have anti gravity from alien technologies

    At the lift off unfortunately we had to watch her face more than so long wayted launch…

    there is an official space STARMAN APP on Google play, where you have to fly between meteroits and stuff in a tesla! hahaha

    Reporter nodding her head like she understands the dynamics of launching a rocket ?

    watch how it goes up, then curves ever so slightly down, but stops filming then it plummets down in to the ocean…damn, society is finished…

    Imagine if NASA had a bigger budget what they could do. If a private company can achieve something like this then the opportunities are endless

    I'll admit I'm pretty impressed with Tue's launch of the Falcon Heavy! And how appropriate to launch from Saturn V's 39A pad. Too bad about the center core, stuff-happens! Considering the engineering/tech marvel of everything, 2 out of 3 isn't too damn bad! They'll get it right soon, I have all the confidence in them now. Do we even need the NASA SLS Orion anymore? It's so behind anyway. For a sec I thought Bill Nye had a 2nd career as an actor in "The Newsroom," but that was Sam Waterston. 🙂

    It's so real because it so fake.
    I like high-levels of fluoride and I believe everything the mainstream media tells me to so I never have to think for myself ever.

    I'm crying… and it's been a week since this… great job job Verge, Magnificent job Spacex!

    My new Son's middle name is Falcon named in honour of Mr Musk's amazing creation 😀

    Whats name of MOVIE where several generation of Americans think theyre on ship to another solar system but at end realize they're in a NASA Hollywood BASEMENT?!

    1k dislikes are NASA's workers..

    Wow, these just might be the best shots of the FH going supersonic. Also great to see some new material, the interview with Elon, instead of "just" another recap of FH

    ETs look at this and say: What a prehistoric technology !

  • February 12, 2018 at 5:04 pm

    This was well done. Great job!

    Je n'ai pas compris la raison de cette expérience , les fusées ont décollée et sont revenues à leurs positions , c'est pour explorer d'autres planètes ou est ce pour faire la guerre ? car il y a bien une différence notable entre les 2
