Cargo Tesla Into Space

      PayPal founder and master of making science sexy, Elon Musk shipped a Tesla out into space Tuesday atop a Falcon Heavy Rocket from the legendary Pad 39 at Cape Canaveral, Florida.
      What was essentially a cargo shipment took center stage as the payload launched from the same location that birthed the first Moon missions and Space Shuttle flights.
      The view of a bright red Tesla orbiting the earth—the words “Don’t Panic” emblazoned on the dashboard—with a space-suited mannequin behind the wheel looked like the ultimate joyride.
      What better way to make the case for future space travel than by demonstrating that the future is now?
      We also loved that two of the three rocket boosters landed back to earth in a choreographed manner, evocative of a coordinated dance line.
      David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” playing on the car radio in space gave it a special touch.
      What a great day for aviation!
