Out of nowhere, last week ended up being full of new things for me. I took a last minute flight out to Orlando to see the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch. Growing up I was obsessed with space but, this was actually my first experience of a launch. With some family we set up in Jetty Park which was about 13 miles South of the launch pad. It's such an odd feeling to see the rocket with your eyes fly though the air and then hear the sound about 1.5 minutes later. If that wasn't cool enough we were only 5 miles away from the landing pad that both the SpaceX boosters landed at simultaneously. Seeing 16 story tall Rockets dive though the sky and then light up to land softly is mind blowing. I can't recommend enough that if you have the opportunity to see a rocket launch you definitely should! Elon Musk put his Tesla into Space?!?! How cool were those pictures? He really is getting America excited about space again and its awesome to see the amount of attention it is getting.
Flying back into to DFW I took the opportunity to check out a Model 3 in person. If you haven't noticed SpaceX, Tesla, Elon Musk has been my jam lately. Having the opportunity to get into a Model 3 instead of just seeing pictures was great. I'm hoping to get one at some point this year!
Anyone else feel like Elon Musk in a walking Tony Stark? Did y'all see the Rocket launch coverage?
