Space X: Flight of the Falcon Heavy

In this episode, we start off with a segment called "In the News" before going into depth about Space X's recent launch of the Falcon Heavy. We talk a bit about the history behind Space X, Elon Musk, and rocket launches in general, why this launch was so important for the future of privatized space, and what it was like to watch the launch live. We also discuss the future of private space exploration, the potential of a space race to Mars, and the reason Mars could be the best option to ensure the future of humanity.
