Elon Musk’s Hitchhiker has taken his guide

As I write this, the euphoria of Space X’s successful Falcon Heavy launch is still fresh.

As you may or may not be aware the test payload was a Tesla car playing David Bowie’s Space Oddity with a dummy star man at the wheel. This is dicking about at a rather ultimate level and yet there’s more.

On Twitter my eagle eye spotted the infamous words ‘Don’t Panic’ from Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. What a fitting tribute. I hope star man remembered his towel!

  1. I spent a lot of time yesterday just staring at the live feed from space, watching Earth slowly moving in and out of view behind the car. It was a truly awe-inspiring thing to watch. Then the camera changed to show the “Don’t Panic!” plaque, and I burst out laughing.
