SpaceX - Falcon Heavy Test Launch

Watch it Live!

Question: What makes this launch different than all the rest?

Well the answer is simple, unlike other SpaceX launches from historic Cape Canaveral, this will be the first launch attempt of the Falcon Heavy Rocket, which boasts a stunning total of three Falcon 9 Rockets firing a combined 27 Merlin Engines running in tandem at the time of liftoff, making it the most powerful engine in the world by a factor of two...
If successful, it will mark the first step on SpaceX's journey to Terraforming Mars and possibly the kickstart of our generations Space Race!

Spacecraft Navigation by Pulsars

I've always loved Pulsars, they're just about my favorite astronomical body in the universe, second to only the Magnetar. One of the main things that makes them so cool is how accurately they emit their light sources, or more specifically -- their beams of electromagnetic radiation.  

And now, we are learning how to use these light sources to determine navigational awareness in outer space (very much the way that we use our GPS system here on Earth)
