This is truly incredible what SpaceX has been able to do.  They've now successfully launched a huge REUSABLE rocket into space that is the same size as a fully loaded 737 airliner.  To add a little flair, they also included a Tesla with a dummy on the rocket with a dashboard readout that says 'Don't Panic!'In case you don't understand what a big deal this is, a private company has done what NASA hasn't been able to.  Build a reusable rocket comparable to the power of the Apollo missions and for a fraction of the cost.

You can see the launch coverage below, and also get a live look of what Starman is seeing on YouTube.
