Reaching for the stars

 A video went viral recently of a SpaceX rocket blasting out of the atmosphere. It was captured wonderfully by a cars dashcam. The camera also captured a pretty nasty car crash, I imagine caused by the huge distraction.

Here is the footage.

This is why I admire Elon Musk so much. During the Christmas period people complain about having to work, or going back to work, or about small injustices that blight our existence… This guy is planning to populate Mars in the upcoming decades largely fuelled by his own personal drive and motivation. He doesn’t complain, he just achieves. He is one of the few people I genuinely look up to that I feel is making a difference like no other. He isn’t making the next love song that we are all listening to on the car radio, he is deciding which planet we will be on at the time.

Did anyone else catch this on the news? Better still, is there anyone out there that witnessed this in person?

I cannot thank this guy enough for showing me where the boundary is, and that is is much higher than I thought.
