So the live feed is cut, what happen to the core? Did it land also ?



I'm not hearing it failed so it must be ok. Camera was knocked out by the landing. The feed wasn't cut.

But did the main rocket land succesfully on that drone ship?
Even on twitter they say nothing.

I watched it with my 9 year old son who loves everything to do with space and claims one day he will go to Mars. Honestly, this was the most exciting thing, especially since it wasn't a NASA launch. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time,and seeing the smile on my kids face while sharing a historical moment. ..priceless.

Just the thing to catch the publics eye
I hope all this is the new golden age of space exploration.
Also if we blow ourselves up and in a billion years someone from here or out there finds that Tesla in space.....
Imagine those beings version of ATS going mad about a space car in orbit around the sun.

It is going to spend some time in the Van Allen belts...


Between the second and third burns, the Roadster will coast for six hours, passing in and out of the Van Allen belts, a concentrated region of radiation that surrounds Earth.

"We're going to be testing something on this flight which we've never done before, a six hour coast in deep space that's going to go through the Van Allen belts," said Musk. "So, it is going to get whacked [by radiation] pretty hard."

"The fuel [for the second stage] could freeze and the oxygen [for the engine] could vaporize, all of which could inhibit the third burn which is necessary for trans-Mars injection," he said. [From Shaking to 'Cannonballing' Ice: Here's What the Falcon Heavy Faces on Epic Test Flight]

If the stage survives the "grand tour" of the Van Allen belts and successfully fires its engine for a third time, then the Tesla will leave Earth on a journey to out where Mars circles the sun.

Was that the moon just behind it?.
Coolest thing I have seen all year. Kinda kills the flat earth stuff also.

That was awesome. The sticking the double Falcon landing at the Cape was impressive. Hopefully the main stage was a successful landing as well. It really looked like the real first steps to interplanetary human flight started today.
