Yay Space!


I love the idea that if humanity is ever wiped out, that one day some aliens will be visiting the neighbourhood only to see a Tesla car floating around Mars with the sounds of David Bowie blasting out.

That made me laugh and get all excited at the same time.

Cheers for the link CheekyD, I turned on with 2 minutes until launch, perfect timing.

Loved the Roadster and the Don't Panic!

This was impressive as hell. Insane to watch them land the first two boosters as well.

We're totally going to Mars at some point. It's crazy exciting.

That’s Musk’s dream and I think he may well be the guy to do it.

I think the first human on Mars is a long way off, but I think it’ll be a company that does it, not NASA.
