To Infinity And Beyond!

There’s a sports car on the way to Mars!

It’s the most exciting thing to happen in space since we sent people to the moon. I watched the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy last night and it was mind blowing.

When the two booster rockets landed simultaneously it looked like a scene from Thunderbirds. When the fairing detached at the top of the main rocket and revealed that the payload was a Tesla Roadster with a dummy in a space suit at the wheel, well what can you say?

Thank you Elon Musk, this is what space flight should be all about, entertainment! Since they stopped playing golf and driving a car on the moon, NASA has been boring.

It’s not just me that’s excited by all of this, the SpaceX launch was the number one trending news story at Skynews.com this morning. Unfortunately Sky news must be run by a bunch of boring stiffs because SpaceX wasn’t their lead story. They went with, “The Prime Minister is facing calls to reject a Brussels bid to potentially limit Britain’s market access after 2019”. That story didn’t make their own top ten trending stories! Sky News are massively out of touch with what real people are interested in.

The Sky story was also inaccurate, on their website this morning, they said, “David Bowie’s Space Oddity playing on lift off”. It wasn’t, it was David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” (The BBC news website got that wrong as well).

By sending a sports car to Mars, Elon Musk has worked out that if you’re in the business of firing rockets into space, you’re not in the science business, you’re in showbusiness. You’ve got to give the people what they want and we want to be entertained.

SpaceX knows how to put on a show. Sky News, you need to learn how to do that too. I don’t know how to break it to you boring news stiffs at Sky but you’re in show business as well!

The SpaceX story is the most read story on your own website, the Brexit story didn’t even make the top ten, how could you lead with Brexit when A SPORTS CAR HAS BEEN LAUNCHED INTO SPACE AND IS ON ITS WAY TO MARS!!!!!!!!

Craic on!
