Life in Space
then & now
[ Feb. 6, 2018 ] — After taking one of Florida’s most scenic rides (north on Cocoa’s Indian River Drive), watch the inaugural launch of Elon Musk’s Falcon Heavy, the SpaceX vehicle nearly the size of NASA’s Saturn V, the rocket Neil Armstrong flew to the Moon.
After the launch of any rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, a unique cloud hangs in the sky, left behind as a sort of signature, marking the start of another scientific and exploratory mission.
Elon Musk envisions a world in which the future exploration of space and discovery, is a mostly private endeavor. Today, SpaceX has taken the lead role in developing The Falcon, but remains partnered with NASA, and is reliant upon American money to finance its “privatization” of space. … both Musk and the United States are hoping Falcon is the rocket that will land the first humans on Mars.
