Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Elton Musk Launched a car to mars. Yep this happen. Yesterday at the office we were all watching it live. It was pretty cool. SpaceX officially made history yesterday when they successfully launched billionaire Elton Musks electric Tesla Roadster into space on board the Falcon Heavy rocket. The Falcon Heavy took off from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral Florida just after3:45 pm EST. It was set to launch 3 hours earlier but was delayed by high winds. The Falcon heavy is a monumental long-distance rocket with an impressive array of 27 Merlin engines and 3 reusable Falcon 9 boosters. The rockets cargo bay can carry up to 60 tonnes of material into Low Earth Orbit and up to 17 tonnes as far as Mars. Shortly after breaching the atmosphere the Falcon 9 boosters touched back down to earth to be repurposed in future missions. But this wasn't cheap- the Falcon heavy launch cost 90 million dollars- while NASAs planned SLS rocket Is expected to cost around 1 billion dollars per flight. Mr Musk is the Space X founder and the mastermind behind this space mission- hes hopeful this voyage will pave the way for future manned missions to mars. About this launch Musk said- I had this image of this giant explosion pad- with wheels bouncing down the road and the logo landing somewhere with a thud. But fortunately that's not what happened- Crazy things come true. The car is now speeding towards the red planet with David Bowies hit song Space Oddity playing on loop- while a dummy in a space suit sits in the drivers seat. Before the stream cut out The car was last seen on the live broadcast of the launch flying over the breathtaking blue planet below it. The projected path will bring the car close to mars- there is also a small chance it may crash into the planet. But if it stays the course it will drift through space for potentially millions of years. This successful launch opens up a world of possibilities. Theres talks of building a new space station above the moon- carrying new spy satellites- and shuttling people to deep space destinations. Its going to be interesting to see what comes of this over the next few years. Hello guys and welcome back to LP im Court McGinley.

Alright as you guys know we have a lot of interesting news stories headed your way so without further adue lets get started. --Next- 1 thousand 200 Olympic security guards have been quarantined after a Norovirus outbreak. Geez I didn't even know the Olympics had so many security guards. So the Olympics is literally kicking off tomorrow and now the organization committee have to deal with this issue. The centers for disease control and prevention say that Norovirus – causes inflammation of the stomach or intestines or both. It results in diarrhea- vomiting- nausea and stomach pain. It's a highly contagious bug. About this the organisation committee have said- To address the shortfall in security workforce due to the isolation 900 military personnel have been deployed to take over the work of the civil safety personnel. They will work across 20 venues until all affected workforce are able to return to duty. Surveys on tap water- the food preparation staff- and food items are currently being conducted to trace the route of transmission. Also, unfortunately- the Olympics is the perfect place for an outbreak and they most frequently happen in places like nursing homes- hospitals- prisons-colleges and cruise ships- basically an environment that requires people to live and eat in close quarters. Precautionary measures are being taken but hopefully they can find the cause before the games officially start. --Next- The worlds longest Zipline is officially open to the public. A lot of people are super excited about this- but if youre not a big fan of heights then this might not be the story for you. But I mean its making history so its still exciting right? This Zipline is referred to as the Jebel Jais Flight. it is located in Dubai and it runs from the top of the UAEs highest mountain. Its 1.7 miles long and reaches top speeds of 90 miles per hour. Previously the longest Zipline was known as the Green monster and it was 1.5 miles long. Now aside from the zipline being a thrill-seeking adventure- it seems like just to get to the platform its quite a mission. The platform is suspended in the air. Its 9 and a half tons and is anchored by 8 anchors that are bolted in the sides of the mountain. Ive been ziplining in Mexico and that was super fun. But that was nothing compared to this- check it out --Next- Im going to tell you about a very clever 9 year old. So this 9 year old is from San Diego and shes a girl scout. She somehow managed to sell 312 boxes of cookies in just 6 hours. How? Well she set up a stand outside a marijuana dispensary. Well it actually wasn't a stand- it was basically her just selling them out of her wagon- but you get the picture. The dispensary even advertised that this girl would be there cookies in tow to their clients over their Instagram page. So either this is a really business savvy 9 year old or it was just dumb luck. Either way she sold an insane amount of cookies. I was a girl guide leader last year and I can tell you that's really impressive. --Next- speaking of treats all of you Kinder chocolate fans get ready. Kinder Bueno ice cream is now a thing. Several versions of the ice cream are being released around the world and they look delicious. The release date is yet to be given but its probably going to be sometime in the summer.
