SpaceX pulled off an unprecedented feat Tuesday after successfully launching its Falcon Heavy rocket into space, re-landing two of the rocket’s spent boosters on the Florida coast. SpaceX founder Elon Musk said a third rocket core “didn’t land on the drone ship” as planned and instead plunged into the ocean. Musk reveled in the launch’s success after thousands turned out to watch it from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. “Crazy things can come true,” Musk said at a press conference afterward. Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket to be launched in 45 years, made it into orbit carrying an “unusual” payload: a cherry red Tesla Roadster playing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” on repeat. Footage from inside the sports car showed a mannequin in a spacesuit taking in the view of Earth from outer space. “Apparently, there is a car in orbit around Earth,” Musk tweeted.
