The Falcon Heavy launch rocks

I just watched the successful launch of Elon Musk’s “Falcon Heavy”, the world’s most powerful rocket! I cannot describe the feeling, it is amazing, must watch! (the actual final countdown starts at 21:27 in the video)

Then fun part is that the rocket is carrying a red Tesla car with a mannequin on the driver’s seat, while the car’s radio is playing David Bowie’s song “Space Oddity” over and over again! So cool. The rocket will send the car into an elliptical orbit away from Earth and around the sun that will eventually lead to Mars’ orbit.

The chances for a successful launch were 50%-50%, but almost everything went well. Especially the sight of the two side boosters setting down simultaneously 8 minutes after launch, on two landing pads at Cape Canaveral, was impressive.

Social Decay

I love this project called Social Decay by Romanian digital artist Andrei Lacatusu. Lacatusu imagines what it would look like if big social media companies had real, but decaying, storefronts in a post-social media world ! The attention in the detail is really impressive.

Mona Lisa selfie

“This woman has been in more selfies than anyone else in the world, and she’s still smiling! Assembled from hundreds of images collected from Instagram, “Mona Lisa Selfie” is a clever reflection on what a personal picture of a hyper-famous work of art means in the digital era.”

36days Electronics alphabet

Brazilian digital designer Vinicius Araújo created a different letter of the alphabet for his project 36days Electronics. He only used Helvetica typeface and all letters were inspired by specific electronic items and brands, like a retro Apple computer, a Canon camera, a Dell monitor, an Epson printer, an LG air conditioner, a retro Motorola mobile etc. The execution and attention in the detail is amazing and Araújo has even designed a small gif animation for some of the letters .
