SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida yesterday carrying its first payload -- a red Tesla roadster -- into orbit. Loren Grush spoke to CEO Elon Musk about the launch and what this means for the future of space travel, as well as Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye. The Falcon Heavy now holds the title for the world’s most powerful rocket, and its launch marks the first time a vehicle this massive has ever been sent up by a commercial company.

I'm not one to follow others or call a person my hero. Though perhaps in a 1000 years a child will call him/her their hero, and deservedly so.

Seeing that take off makes me teary eyed. It's just incredible, space travel is the greatest achievement humanity will ever achieve in the entirety of our existence. And to think, in the timeline of what we can achieve - we're still just babies! We're hardly even walking yet, hell a majority of the earths populous only saw the first ever rocket take off a mere fifty or so years ago.

Just incredible, I wish I could live long enough to see how far we'll go - but I'm lucky to have lived in an era where this is all beginning!

Is the music custom-made for the video? Where can I find the song that starts at 3:49?

Now watch again, starting at 1:11, and imagine Elon has a huge crush on the interviewer, and interpret his body language and verbal stumbling as reflecting that. It's hilarious.

i dont know what to say.. i have litteraly tears in my eyes that we made it.. As humanity we reached a Goal that we wanted so Long we have so many possibilities now it feels so strange that in the Next 10 years could be a rocket a normal Transportation for People and that People now have the possibilitity to see the earth from the moon think about a Picture of a Family with Kids in space suits waving to earth it could be Possible in a few years thats just so unbelievable epic. WE are the gerneration that Can now say to our Kids "in our time the highest we could get was by plane" like old People now say that they hadnt cars or electrizity back then. Think about the books with Pictures taken in ww1 after the war or ww2 Olympia and somewhere is that one Picture you Can see youself Standing in front of this rocket and cheering at it with the title "The beginning of the space era" you Can see yourself Standing there like the People seeing them selfs in that one trench for winning the war or the Other one sitting in the stadion in the time Hitler was there too. we gona be in a history Book with one of the biggest achievments in this world and for our future People that probably will learn about this and us the Next thousand years and Never get forgotten!
