Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Elon Musk just launched our earthshaking new adventure

By now, you might have seen the spectacular launch of the most powerful rocket in current operation. Falcon Heavy is a reusable heavy-lift launch vehicle designed and manufactured by SpaceX, an entrepreneur Elon Musk’s space enterprise. It is capable of lifting into earth’s orbit nearly 64 metric tons, which is heavier than a fully-loaded 737 jetliner, with its three strapped reusable launch booster rockets. In fact, two of them had been used in previous missions and landed perfectly this time again. Despite the massive capacity, the only payload this time was just an electric sports car on a mannequin in a spacesuit, called Starman, in the driver’s seat.

The purpose of this launch mission is to test the capability of this powerful rocket that is designed to carry equipment, materials, and persons to build a human station on Mars, the red planet.

It was nearly half-a-century ago when Apollo 11 was launched from the same launch pod to send the first men to the moon. Given the technologies available today and tomorrow, isn’t it the time for a new frontier?

Enjoy reading the article and watching the videos and think if you will ever see an ad for a trip to Mars.
