The shattering of Neptune

 

“The mass starts into a million suns;
Earths round each sun with quick explosions burst,
And second planets issue from the first.
[The first concept of a ‘big bang’ theory of the universe.]”
― Erasmus Darwin, The Botanic Garden A Poem in Two Parts. Part 1: the Economy of Vegetation

SpaceX just put a Tesla in space 🚀

 

On the 6th February 2018, the world watched as SpaceX successfully launched the most powerful rocket in the world into space, and landed two Falcon 9 rocket boosters back on Earth, synchronized to perfection.

The payload for the inaugural Falcon Heavy test flight was Elon Musk’s red Tesla Roadster convertible. For the first twelve hours, the car was running a livestream back to Earth and blasting David Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” into space.
