Make no mistake – yesterday’s launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket with a Tesla Roadster on-board captivated the car community, if not the world. It’s certainly not the first time a rocket was sent into space, but it is the first time a private company endeavored to reach beyond Earth's orbit, never mind sending an actual car with a spacesuit-wearing mannequin to orbit the sun. Anyone who caught the SpaceX livestream yesterday will attest to just how awe-inspiring it was to see the car floating in orbit, with the Earth growing ever smaller in the background.
