Feb 6th 2018 was the first launch of SpaceX Falcon Heavy with the most power in any rocket at this point in time. As commercial spaceflight progresses maybe humans will return to real spaceflight and travel out of Earth’s orbit again soon. These are some of the best photos provided on SpaceX’s own web site of this first launch. The first payload was a Tesla car with the astronaut dummy. Destination was to Mars. The space geek in me loves this stuff!

When I purchased ‘This Old Dump’ back in December of 1996, there was a lot of dead plants lining the street and driveway. The next spring that turned into these. Every year since they come back and bloom right around Memorial Day weekend without fail. I never do much to them and yet they prosper as if in memory of the original owner who planted them before me (I’m the second owner of the home built in 1945).
