Today is the day, when Elon Musk and SpaceX will be launching the Falcon Heavy Mega Rocket. For those who don't know, the Falcon Heavy is a rocket similar to the Saturn V rocket that took the Apollo astronaughts to the moon. In a bit of serendipity the Falcon Heavy will be launching from the same launch pad as the one that the Apollo 11 mission took off from.

Elon Musk will also be sending a scarlet Tesla Roadster along for the ride, with any luck making it all the way to Mars.
