if you can upload the mind into a simulated reality, whats the point. Just make your own laws of physics and visit anything you want.

Musk teases a Super Falcon Heavy with two extra boosters, for a total of five rockets:

I kinda doubt this will happen with BFR in development, but we shall see.

Launch successful. Attempting to land the boosters now. Images of the Tesla Roadster in space:

Wow, that was amazing! I never watched the animation video so didn't know what to expect.

Those side boosters landing themselves was like the mic drop....

Crazy technology

Can't imagine the programming that goes into those two rockets to land gracefully. OR does mission control do it?

Is it safe to keep re using rocket boosters?

They land autonomously. There's no way for a human to make that landing.

What's a BFR?

Today's launch used 27 Merlin 1D engines. Once the Raptor engines are utilized, it should provide a significant increase in thrust (payload capacity) while obtaining better specific impulse numbers.

The tesla in the air reminded me of the itro scene to the original heavy metal movie.
