Whether you regard it as remarkable, impressive, or kind of cool, SpaceX's Falcon 9 Heavy launch yesterday was historic. It's single-handedly re-ignited mainstream fascination with space exploration, ushering us closer to a reality where we can be a multi-planetary species.
As goosebump-raising as the tandem booster landing was, the real highlight of the show was the Tesla Roadster that was launched into an indefinite orbit around the Sun. Yup, while thousands of upper class folk are itching for its release date so they can show off their climate-friendliness while going 0-60 quicker than you can say "f*** that rich guy", Tesla decided it'd be a good idea to launch a working model outside low-Earth orbit to possibly never be seen again.
Thankfully, the car was equipped with a few cameras to document the ridiculousness of it all. What we're left with are some one-of-a-kind photos that help put to perspective how little our existence is, while offering some quality meme opportunities.
Below are some of the best memes about the Tesla Roadster soaring through space with Mr. Starman inside:
