Elon Musk's SpaceX Rocket Just Launched Into Space And Twitter Is Losing It
If you have no idea what SpaceX is or what #FalconHeavy means, you've come to the right place. Space X, short for Space Exploration Technologies Corp., is Elon Musk's private aerospace company that creates, designs and launches rockets and spacecraft. Don't mistake this for NASA - it's completely different.
SpaceX was founded in 2002 by the Tesla creator. I have to admit, Musk knows what he's doing when it comes to advanced technology - but I'm sure you already knew that and you're not here for a lesson on Elon Musk.
Moments ago was the successful launch of the Falcon Heavy, the world's most powerful rocket to date. The launch of the Falcon Heavy has been heavily anticipated, which means the entire world has been watching (and commenting).
Not only did the Falcon Heavy launch into space, it took Musk's cherry red Tesla roadster along with it. The red car seemingly driving through space naturally made for some incredible photos but now it's also at the centre of some seriously hilarious tweets. This brings me to the point of this article - not how magnificent this endeavour is, but how hilarious everyone's reactions are on Twitter.
Here are some of the funniest tweets from #FalconHeavy.
RON WEASLY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR. I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED. YOUR FATHER'S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK AND IT'S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT! #FalconHeavy— Danàe (@ElMoussaouiDana)

These images are real! No photoshop. No video game. Just the genious of @elonmusk making history. #FalconHeavy— Lucas Di Tiero (@lucasdt)
I for one would love to watch the center core landing (crashing), even if it is a spectacular failure. Because science is like drinking tequila. Some lessons you have to learn the hard way. #FalconHeavy #CenterCore— Maegan Reed (@Maeganerd)

I can't decide if #FalconHeavy is the coolest thing ever or the first act to a black mirror episode.— Stephanie Jimenez (@StephNJimenez)
