They say you can't get to Mars without breaking a few eggs. While the most recent SpaceX Starship attempt didn't exactly have a perfect landing, watching the thing from far away lets you see exactly how it straight up looks like a sideways building falling to the earth before very nearly re-righting itself and (almost) sticking the landing.

Elon Musk Earns 'Space Karen' Title After Complaining About Covid-19 Tests

If you thought the internet was done talking about Karens or Elon Musk, you were dead wrong. And Twitter offered us an unholy amalgam of the two this weekend. The SpaceX founder tweeted on Friday that "something extremely bogus is going on," regarding Covid-19 tests. 

The tweet, unsurprisingly, was not well received. While many people resolved to call Elon Musk a "pos" and decry his penchant for fueling conspiracy theories, doctors and academics instead called him out in the best way they know how: with facts and statistics. While we admire every own, it was Dr. Emma Bell of Toronto, Ontario that delivered the harshest blow. In their takedown tweet, they refer to Elon Musk as "Space Karen." The nickname was received far better than Musk's cringey tweet. We've put together some of the best reactions to Musk's tweet and subsequent Karen-dom, but we're willing to bet you'll find more goodies on Twitter.  


Funny memes and tweets Space Karen and about elon musk's cringey tweet about covid testing | Emma Bell PhD @emmabe1142 Rapid antigen tests trade sensitivity for speed. They return a result in minutes, but can only detect COVID-19 when you're absolutely riddled with it. What's bogus is that Space Karen didn't read up on the test before complaining to his millions of followers. Elon Musk @elonmusk Something extremely bogus is going on. Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back

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.

Elon Musk And Grimes Were The Most Meme-able Couple At The Met Gala

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and edgy Canadian pop artist Grimes officially "came out" as a couple at this year's Met Gala. The two reportedly bonded over nerdy AI Twitter humor, which is not much of a surprise when you consider the musician's fondness for a sort of spacey cyberpunk aesthetic. The space-minded scientist seems to have picked the right date - she definitely came through with a galactic goth getup. 

While the coupling makes sense intellectually, the duo brought to mind many pop culture odd-couples. The comparisons became a viral twitter meme, ranging from Scott Pilgrim's Ramona Flowers and Gideon Graves, to The Breakfast Club's Allison and Andrew. All jokes aside, we think these two could have a stellar relationship. Wedding vows in space, anyone?

Comedian Doubles Down, Says Elon Musk Should Donate SpaceX Money, Gets Ripped Apart Again

Yesterday we shared a Twitter thread in which comedian Laurie Kilmartin was ADAMANT that Elon Musk should donate his money to charity instead of wasting it on the funding of SpaceX.


After she got reasoned into the dirt she reopened the discussion by retweeting our post. She then proceeded to get torn apart AGAIN.

C'mon Laurie. Stop doubling down and just admit you made a bad argument.
