Elon Musk, the guy responsible for the Tesla automobile and the superfast Hyperloop train, launched another private rocket into space yesterday. The SpaceX Falcon Heavy took off around 1:45pm Arizona time headed for Mars. Payload on the rocket included a Tesla Roadster and a mannequin named "Starman."
A technical glitch after the rocket left the earth's atmosphere will prevent the Falcon Heavy from completing it's 250-million mile journey to the Red Planet.
Around 7:30pm many Valley residents reported seeing more lights in the sky. Although SpaceX has not confirmed it, the white streaking lights on the horizon were likely a booster falling back to earth.
