    Low res and not perfect but readable. Better reception could be had with more attempts but they don't send images in this format very often. These are from 2008.

    Even Musk commented on the CGI look of the video.
    But meanwhile, some more humor:

    Doesn’t bode well for Musk’s alleged manned mission to orbit the moon later this year (right). Supposedly he has paying customers, but I doubt it. He can’t hit a planet in an unmanned mission now, that would be a fun trip. No wonder he plays “Ground Control to Major Tom.”

    Instead of pulling dumb ass stunts he might try to actually get a human out of low Earth orbit, it should be easy since it was done (snicker) in 1969.

    Obviously you never played with rockets when you were a kid.

    Wait, Oldmansmith, does that mean you never were a kid??

    I don't think the intention was to get to Mars at all. Like Joking intimated I also think it is an experiment to see what actually happens to non-protected stuff out in the radiation vacuum. I also think that there is something else traveling with the car otherwise how did the picture get sent back? Now who would send a behemoth of a rocket into space and not have a valid payload? Something else had to be on top of that rocket because you just cannot do non efficient things and get away from a bottom line that will bust the company.

    Really no idea what is so complicated here. I've not said the Earth is flat, I've said the Earth is not a spheroid 7917 miles in diameter. I bash on the idiotic theory of gravity because it's idiotic, unproven, yet defended by nearly everyone as though it's fact.

    Never ever have I seen anyone rush to prove Newtonian gravity by demonstrating that all mass attracts all mass at infinite speed...yet nearly everyone claims it's a fact. It's like people have been smashed upside the head with an idiot stick when it comes to gravitational theory. Three and a half damn centuries and people know next to nothing about this ridiculous theory that allegedly holds the universe together. One can blast dozens of holes in the franken-gravitational theory most hold as "fact" and still they'll not bat an eye, but will instead call you dumb for questioning this ridiculous mish mash of pseudo-scientific theories. Talk about an intellectual blind spot.

    Let us not forget about time. It and this gravity exhibit the same properties. Always moving forward to rest and never moving backwards.

    It wasn't. It was to go into orbit around the Sun.

    The cameras appear to be mounted on the car.

    Maiden voyages of new rockets have a high rate of failure.

    It was a test launch of a new rocket. No one is going to want to risk a multi-million dollar payload on an unproven design.

    Ok, if it's not flat and not a perfect spheroid, what holds people on to the other side of it? The only shape that wouldn't have some of the Earth on the other side is a flat one. All other shapes would have stuff hanging off the bottom of it. What force keeps them there so they don't fall off?

    Someone getting 4.9 billion dollars per year in government subsidies, that’s who. Best “business model” in the world.

    Bullshit purebullshit New Rocket or not when you have a train heading east or west you seen something on it. So what you are saying is that Columbus should have sailed with nothing in the holds as they were going to fall off the end of the earth don'tcha know.

    So what you are saying is "Don't throw effort after foolishness." I kind of remember a spy satellite going into orbit on an approved rocket lift and I myself see no difference in between the two. Yeah your right, yep must be correct as always Yep there is nothing called insurance to cover the coast of a malfunction on the launch pad.

    You know I think all them nails I have pounded into that 2x4 with my forehead, why I am going to turn that 2x4 over and pound them out utilizing (of course) my forehead. Some times I just wonder.

    Trains don't blow up if least thing goes wrong and they didn't put multi-million dollar cargo on the first one.

    No, what I'm saying is that maiden launches of all rockets are what is known as a test.

    Not surprising.

    No insurance company would have insured a multi-million dollar payload on an unproven rocket design.

    Now I think I'm starting to understand your need for the wifkey, Mike. lol

    Whatever dude. I don't see you risking your millions on unproven tech.
    ...and whether you believe it or not, every new type of rocket is given at least one test flight before being used for any real mission.


    Now that it's shown to be able to work, they'll have real payloads soon. I think they already have at least two launches lined up for sometime this year.

    Being in the business of building rockets is the same as building any other vehicle. Ie: there will always be some of them used for testing in order to make sure the design actually works. Would you be willing to book a flight on an airplane whose design has never flown before? Wouldn't you want it to be tested first?
