SpaceX's Starship Has More Test Flights Planned

SpaceX's Starship is the rocket that will change everything. Eco-friendly, able to carry cargo and eventually passengers, and most importantly, reusable, this rocket is promising to change space travel forever. Sadly, booking a ticket to space is still a long way away. But we are able to watch the test flights of the Starship rocket, which are admittedly pretty cool. It's not every day you get to watch the baby steps of rocket science.

If you want to launch your own rocket (or watch one being launched), check out these GIFs of Estes model rockets being launched. Or if you feel like making your own (kind of) rockets, check out this comprehensive guide for making some awesome paper airplanes

Watch The First Moments of NASA's Crew Dragon Spacecraft Launch

Don't have time to watch or fast-forward through 6 hours of filler coverage? We've grabbed the perfect shots from SpaceX and NASA's joint spacecraft launch of the Crew Dragon. This is the first commercial spacecraft in history to bring astronauts into space, and was designed by the tech giant Elon Musk with his SpaceX commercial space program. With the launch a complete success, and the window narrowing after inclement weather, the successful launch was a massive achievement for commercial space travel, and the potential is massive for scaling this to even greater heights. Next stop, Mars.

Launch highlights of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft as it carries two astronauts into space to the International Space Station as the first commercial spacecraft to bring astronauts into space. The cover gif is an immediate close up and then zoom out of SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft launching and the thrust trail it leaves as it rockets into the atmosphere and into space.

18 Musky Memes That'll Send You On A Mission To Mars

The world's most meme-able billionaire is making headlines again for offering his tech services and expertise to a Thai soccer team of 12 boys and their coach who were trapped in a cave for two weeks. The soccer team was miraculously rescued, but not with Musk's help - the mission was completed by Thai Navy Seals and Musk's devices and rescue plans were deemed unnecessary and impractical by the heads of the operation. Regardless, the internet has begun joking about his determination to help, and tendency to perhaps take unnecessary credit...

In light of the ordeal, here are some hilarious Musk memes we can all laugh at - some at his expense and some made by the man himself.

Elon Musk's SpaceX Just Created & Shipped An Escape Sub For Thai Rescue

If you're anything like us, you've been desperately following the harrowing saga of a Thai youth soccer team that has been trapped in flooded caves for nearly two weeks. The complicated rescue, which has already resulted in the death of one diving expert, has caught the attention of the entire world. Including, apparently, Elon Musk. 

Musk and a team of engineers quickly designed a submarine "escape pod" to aid the rescue efforts. Tested in an LA high school pool, the pod may arrive in time to help the rescue of the final five boys stuck in the caves. While many people are quick to accuse Elon of publicity stunts, the gravity of this rescue operation has been emphasized ever since it began. It's comforting that the great minds of the world can't be utilized in times of crisis. Respect.
