Why It's Relevant

On Tuesday, Elon Musk's SpaceX successfully debuted its newest rocket called the Falcon Heavy. The reusable rocket, believed to be the world's most powerful, carried a red Tesla Roadster as its mock payload during its widely-publicized test launch. The Falcon Heavy is considered to be a major breakthrough in rocket technology. It has twice the lift capacity of the biggest rocket in America's existing fleet but costs just 1/4 as much.

SpaceX is a private space company founded by Elon Musk, a mercurial billionaire who has been vocal about his desire to colonize Mars. Musk is also the CEO and co-founder of Tesla.
