By Izza Sofia, 08 Feb 2018
The ‘Falcon Heavy’ jumbo rocket, developed by SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk, has launched into space and it had a sole passenger onboard—a dummy named 'Starman’ that was carried inside a Tesla ‘Roadster’.
Incredible real-time footage shows the car traveling at 25,200mph, as David Bowie’s Life on Mars plays in the background. The video also shows the electric car and ‘Starman’ floating through space with Earth in the background.
Viewers were treated to video images of Musk’s red ‘Roadster’ circling in space, with the words “Don’t Panic” plastered in the center of the visuals.
The aftermath of the rocket launch has incited comical responses from Twitter, including references ranging from sci-fi movies to pop culture.
Enjoy the hilarious responses below.
