Photos: More images of Falcon Heavy's launch and booster landings


Barren County Middle School eighth-grader Jackson Hardin said "it was fun watching all of the people from SpaceX, how they were getting to actually watch their rocket that they had been working on". The rocket blasted off on Tuesday between a launch window that started from 1:30 p.m. EST and till 4 p.m. EST.

But that promise is largely predicated on a pace of Model 3 production that's still well above the current pace.

Meanwhile, small matters like the fact that Tesla has just had its worst quarter float beneath us. The stock is going forward to its 52-week low with 39.99% and lagging behind from its 52-week high price with -13.04%.

Wilbur Glenn Voliva, who in 1906 took over the Christian Catholic Church, a Pentecostal sect that established a utopian community at Zion, Illinois, preached flat Earth doctrine from 1915 onwards and used a photograph of a twelve-mile stretch of the shoreline at Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin taken three feet above the waterline to prove his point.

To the idea that the ability to live in people's pockets is the most exciting development, and that the most effective execution around this fact is to enact the 'modern' version of cramming people's letterboxes/doorsteps full of unwanted, unsolicited marketing materials.

It was all brought to you by Elon Musk, the South African-born billionaire entrepreneur and founder of Paypal, electric car company Tesla, and SpaceX, the manufacturer of the Falcon Heavy.

Falcon Heavy can "lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb) - a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel", according to SpaceX.

NASASpaceFlight later confirmed the US Air Force "conducted a scuttling operation" to destroy the remains of the rocket booster. "We're not totally buying that", Rusch said.

Test flights typically have a dummy payload, such as a big hunk of metal, so that nothing important or expensive is damaged if the rocket blows up.

SpaceX's last national security mission was in January, when its Falcon 9 rocket launched the classified Zuma satellite built for the U.S. government. It was a product of remarkable engineering, and a source of awe and internet memes across the planet (Earth, not Mars). But can private companies obey the rules of the road in outer space?

But the Tesla wasn't always the intended payload for the Falcon Heavy rocket, it can now be revealed.

Business Insider contacted SpaceX and NASA for more details about the offer (which was worth about $90 million) and why the opportunity was declined, but we didn't receive a response before this story was published. "A student developed experiment or early tech demo could have led to even more new knowledge from the mission", Garver tweeted on Thursday evening. They cut back through the Earth's atmosphere and landed in unison at a Kennedy Space Center landing pad. The only concerns come from the liftoff winds as well as the thick clouds present above.

For perspective, Tesla delivered 1,542 Model 3 cars during the quarter. The rocket shall drop off this shipment to the hyperbolic orbit.

It matters. The bulk of Tesla stock's gains to date have been rooted in the assumption that the bullish "next time" expectations would be met. Now, that's changing. The orbit has the power to drive the automobile to a distance close to Mars.

Rusch appeared on "Squawk Box" the morning after Tesla posted its biggest quarterly loss ever but promised to meet short-term and long-term goals for the Model 3, which starts at $35,000.

On Wednesday, January 24, SpaceX announced that it has successfully test-fired the 27 Merlin engines of the Falcon Heavy rocket.
