    I hope that the car is safe. I wish that I had that kind of money.

    You can't hear it but it was very visible, like a giant roman candle ball going up. If you go early you go watch it from Playlinda beach which is at the Cape Canaveral National Sea shore which is very close. You can also watch it from the various bridges going over to the beaches as they have pedestrian walks. It was a 2 hour traffic jam getting out of the local area after the launch yesterday.

    I witnessed America's first man in to space on May 5, 1961 when we sent Alan Shepard Jr up. I also watch the launch of the Space shuttle Columbia on its last flight when it was destroyed or re-entry. Watched many of the Shuttle launches, as well as several of the Mercury and Apollo launches, one of the benefits of living in Florida.

    This was their first launch of this type so consider it a test for future launch's. I guess the car was just added weight to see how the rocket responds to a certain sized load. They could have used bricks or cross ties of a similar weight but sending the Electric Automobile into deep space is much more noticeable and dramatic. The cost of the car is negligible compared to the overall mission test.
    Those are my thoughts and I'm sticking to it.

    As a former photo interpreter for Air Force Intelligence 1967-1971 when I was in the Air Force I have no doubt at all the moon landings were real, I had one of the highest security clearances you could have.

    To head off any problems please remember to keep politics out of thread.
    The most amazing thing about this country is that my freedom of speech is just as protected as yours TreasureHunter. No worries I am very respectful of the rules and guidelines on this forum not an ounce of politics was mentioned in my post nor will it be unles its in the properly designated section.

    I do have some food for thought for you Treasure Hunter using the Socratic Method:

    1. Where was the lunar buggy stored in the lunar lander?
    2. Where does the metamorphosis occur for the lunar lander into the lunar module that lands in the ocean?

    How did it change from this

    Not sure why your quoting freedom of speech, I never said anything other than to keep politics out of thread.

    Waterscoop, rover was folded up and stored under the lander, it unpacks and unfolds just like most of the equipment. Here is a link to an old Popular Science story on it.

    https://www.popsci.com/blog-network/...ar-moon#page-3

    The lunar Module ascent stage that is the first picture posted was jettisoned when it returned Astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin Jr. to the CSM. Your posting two different vehicles, they did not return with the lunar Module that landed on the moon, it was jettisoned and the lunar module was left when they returned on the command and service module (CSM) to earth, the lunar rover and, lunar lander was all left behind, the rover on the moon, lander in space.

    2. Where does the metamorphosis occur for the lunar lander into the lunar module that lands in the ocean?
    They are two separate vehicles. The lunar lander and the command module. The way I understand, the "part that drops in the ocean" is the nose cone of the command module after the command module jettisons it's engine and related component.


    But, all I really know about space travel is that I fly around the sun once a year.
    I cannot make you think. I can give you something to think about, but whether or not you choose to think about what is offered and how you think about it is entirely up to you. In the same manner, I cannot make you get offended. I have no control over your behavior. Getting offended, or keeping your cool is your choice. It is all up to YOU cupcake!

    Not one of Detroit's finest moments, the Vega. Strange engine in that thing. In '75, I went with the Pinto. Now THAT was a fine, well made vehicle! LOL.

    If the dude was smart he would have sent up a couple of Guatemalan illegal aliens, which would have proved the existence of "space aliens". IIRC, somebody was offering $100,000 for proof of " space aliens".

    Could have earned himself $100,000 instead of risking his coal burning car.

    Amen! Wouldn't that be a grand sight, but only if it explodes (wait, that would be its contemporary, the Pinto). My first car was a '73 Vega station wagon. It was only three years old when I bought it and already rusting out. Half the time, turn the key and not a peep, so I'd have to crawl under it and beat on the starter to get it to crank. Talk about catching hell at school. And what a chick magnet. Great times! BUT, unlike Elon Musk, I paid for every aspect of that car with my money, not from handouts. I don't have anything against electric cars, IF that is where the market leads. It's really not that different from Solyndra or welfare fraud, but that's just my nonpolitical opinion.
