Did you hear about Space X's latest test flight?

The event was caught on camera by NASASpaceFlight, showing the water tower-like rocket sending off a large cloud of white smoke.

No, I hadn't.
That was a static test, meaning it didn't leave the ground.
It's a test of the engines, and how they work together etc.
According to Musk, all went well, so they expect to do an actual test flight to about 11 or 12 miles up soon. Like within months or weeks.
This could be the spacecraft that brings astronauts to the Moon and Mars in the near future.
I hope all tests continue to go as well.
It won't be long and they'll be talking about bringing materials and equipment up to the Moon to establish a permanent base.
Exciting stuff be a-happenin' !
