With SpaceX’s most historic launch under its belt, Elon Musk is feeling justifiably ecstatic. He took a victory lap by sharing with all his social media followers by sharing an easter egg inside of the red Tesla Roadster he launched into space to all of his social media followers.

“Printed on the circuit board of a car deep in space,” the SpaceX founder shared on Twitter and Instagram, revealing an inscription that reads “Made on Earth by humans.”

Musk’s intention is for the car to remain on its lonely orbit around the sun — one designed to pingpong it between the Earth and Mars — for millions of years, so it makes sense to leave a message to future civilizations that might find it while passing through our lonely solar system. It’s SpaceX’s answer to the Golden Record placed on NASA’s Voyager spacecraft for their slow trek into the cosmos.

The Falcon Heavy’s successful first launch is an enormous accomplishment that took more than seven years of planning, so it makes sense that Musk is doing a victory lap. Though it was supposed to launch back in 2013, the rocket has faced a series of setbacks that prevented it from taking off. Even Tuesday, the launch was pushed back to 3:45 p.m. Eastern due to wind conditions at Cape Canaveral.

But the result was more than worth the wait. The aerospace community is collectively applauding the achievement, which shattered records in the sector.

SpaceX’s official Twitter joined in that choir of cheers, tweeting “Liftoff!”.

So much could have gone wrong on this mission — a fact Musk himself repeatedly acknowledged in interviews.

“There’s, like, a lot that can go wrong there … it’s guaranteed to be exciting,” Musk said at the 2017 ISS R&D Conference in Washington, D.C. back in July 2017. “There’s a lot of risk associated with Falcon Heavy, a real good chance that that vehicle does not make it to orbit.”

He doubled down on that message as recent as December, setting the bar extremely low — understandably so.

“Falcon Heavy to launch next month from Apollo 11 pad at the Cape,” Musk wrote in a tweet from December 1, 2017. “Will have double thrust of next largest rocket. Guaranteed to be exciting, one way or another.”

It seems under-promising and over-delivering paid off in this case. Congrats to Elon and everyone at SpaceX. Ad astra indeed!

Apple confirmed on Thursday that it will host a fourth-and-final event of 2018 later this month, where it is expected to debut a range of new hardware ranging from iPad Pros, Macs, Macbooks, and the long-awaited AirPower. Within minutes, social media was flooded with screenshots of the invitations, which had varying takes on the Apple logo.

With invites to a rumored October product release going out possibly this week, leaks and renders of would-be Apple products have been leaking in droves. Most of them have pertained to the soon-to-be overhauled iPad Pro, making it the frontrunner for a device update before the end of the year.

Two hardware rumors and a confirmed software update have given fans of the premium tablets a clear picture of the next generation of iPad devices. All signs have pointed to an iPad Pro with a Face ID feature, a new Apple Pencil, a slender redesign, and the ability to output 4K HDR content.

Look, I love the Apple Watch. It’s big, beautiful, and it just keeps getting better, but with computers speeding up every year and Apple’s competitors getting savvier, there are fewer reasons to stick so tightly to Tim Cook’s lineup of gadgets. Android phones are great, Microsoft’s Surface continues to improve drastically, and, yes, smartwatches are getting better and better, too.

There are no spoilers in First Man, Damien Chazelle’s breathtaking new entry into the Oscar race. Neil Armstrong makes it to the moon during Apollo 11, after a series of tragic accidents that imbue his mission with gravity and dread. But we already knew all that. What most of us don’t know going in is who Neil Armstrong was.
