SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Soars in Debut Test Launch From Florida – The New York Times
Yesterday, I saw news about SpaceX on Twitter and CNBC. Therefore, I chose the article ‘SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Soars in Debut Test Launch From Florida’. SpaceX succeeded in launching a big rocket Falcon Heavy. It was big space science news. There were 3 reasons: First, they launched Elon Musk’s personal Tesla Roadster into space and took some pictures of the car and the earth. Second, SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is the biggest rocket, thus they could bring not just the Roadster, but also some satellites from commercial companies. Finally, the rocket costs are cheaper? than most rockets because it can be reused sometimes. Most rockets can only be launched just once and launching costs are expensive. It is a kind of a big problem to grow the space market. Elon? solved this problem by using system control engineering. I think this topic conveys Elon’s message to future that we live in the new world of 2018, and we can go to Mars anytime using cars.
