Elon Musk Is Trying To Launch A Car Playing David Bowie Into Space This Afternoon

first_imgElon Musk is a fascinating figure, acting as the CEO and lead designer at SpaceX in addition to heading a number of other companies including Tesla, Neuralink, and others. Today, SpaceX will launch of their unmanned rocket, Falcon Heavy, into Earth’s atmosphere for the first time. As told by CNN, if the launch is successful, Falcon Heavy “will become the world’s most powerful operational rocket. … With its 27 engines, the rocket will give off a thrust equal to 18 Boeing 747 jetliners … [and] will be capable of sending humans to the moon or Mars.” The launch is planned for 1:30 p.m. EST.According to The Verge, if the multi-stage launch is successful, the Falcon Heavy’s final booster will split in half and release its payload–a Tesla Roadster–into space on a hyperbolic route toward Mars (and beyond) at around seven miles per second. As Musk claimed in a tweet back in December, the Tesla “will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn’t blow up on ascent.Elon Musk also said in the tweet that the Roadster’s stereo would play David Bowie‘s “Space Oddity” as it makes its way toward a Mars orbit. Yesterday, ahead of the launch of the Falcon Heavy, SpaceX released an animation of the anticipated launch backed by Bowie’s “Life On Mars?” You can watch the animated video below:[Video: SpaceX]While no sounds can be heard in the vacuum of outer space regardless, there’s something satisfying about knowing that SpaceX’s Mars-bound car will be blasting David Bowie as it flies through the solar system.

If things aren’t quite going according to their plan they can equally use Cash Out and limit their losses,” Adegbile said.“These Cash Out offers will be available for all sports and betting options types. Singles and accumulator bets are also eligible for Cash Out and it will be available online, on mobiles and customers can still Cash Out in-shop. Cash Out offers cut across Pre-Game and Live Games, with no qualifying odds conditions attached.Adegbile also explained how the new innovation would benefit punters. “Let’s assume that a punter makes a five-team accumulator bet of N500 for the weekend’s football matches: two Premier League games on Saturday, two La Liga games on Sunday and one Bundesliga game on Monday night. If all five selections win, I stand to win N50,000.“If the first two selections are successful and the Sunday bets also come in, the punter is left with his Monday night selection. If the team the punter backed takes an early 1-0 lead in the game, then a few minutes later, they concede a penalty, have their goalkeeper sent off as a result and the opposition team converts the penalty to level  1-1.“With the game poised all square, he is now at a significant disadvantage. Now would be a great time for the punter to consider cashing out his bet. By doing this, he will be giving himself a return on the bet, whereas if he leaves the bet to run to a natural conclusion, the odds are that his Monday night selection might lose and he will be left with nothing.”last_img read more
