Elon Musk sons flat-earthers with Falcon Heavy launch, sends Tesla to space
For all of you flat-earthers conspiring, FOH! Elon Musk just sonned the living crap out of you with his Falcon Heavy Rocket launch.
The successful liftoff and landing is just the beginning of a very SpaceX adventure. To prove it, today marks the launch of the most powerful rocket into orbit.
It’s like 2018 is the new 1969 on steroids, as the Falcon Heavy Rocket launch even took precedence over an official White House press briefing.
The hype is unreal
In fact, the launch was a case of historical deja vu as SpaceX used the same launch pad, 39A, at the Kennedy Space Center that launched Apollo 11 in 1969.
Making matters all the more memorable, Musk left his stamp on the historic event by adding an interesting payload – a Starman in a red Tesla Roadster with a circuit board that read: “MADE ON EARTH BY HUMANS.”
Putting the red Roadster in the Falcon Heavy Rocket wasn’t just the best marketing stunt the world has ever seen. It’s a huge part of the mission.
Since the rocket didn’t explode into tiny little pieces, the “Starman in Roadster” will travel over 400 million km from earth at 24606 mph on a billion year journey through deep space.
According to an Elon Musk IG post, this could mean a future with “crewed missions to the moon and Mars with orbital refilling.” In the post, he added,
“Should it work, Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful rocket in the world by a factor of two and the highest payload launch vehicle to reach orbit after the Saturn V moon rocket… Could do crewed missions to the moon and Mars with orbital refilling, but better to leave that to the BFR program.”
The 140,000-pound load carrying capabilities of the Falcon Heavy Rocket could also mean light interstellar drop-offs of galactic building materials, space probes, and satellites.

What’s the best part of the SpaceX mission? There’s a camera in the whip recording everything the Starman sees.
This includes the curve and spherical geometry of our planet. Trust, we didn’t forget to son you flat-earthers.
Peep the debunk. FOH Kyrie and B.O.B.!

In case you didn’t know the StarMan is not an actual person. I REPEAT THE STARMAN IS NOT AN ACTUAL PERSON! Don’t panic.
