AltspaceVR Will Be Hosting A SpaceX Launch Party Where History Will Be Made
Elon Musk is one of the great innovators of our generation with eyes set high for all of human kind. He has built multiple companies such as Tesla, Solar City, and SpaceX, which are disrupting our current standards in life. To add a little more spice to Elon Musk’s legacy, he has his SpaceX team will look to make history on March 12th with the launch of the communications satellite, Echostar 23. The space company will be sending the satellite into orbit atop the Falcon 9 rocket.
This will be the final launch of the Falcon 9 rocket in “fully expendable” mode where they will not be recovering the first stage rocket on the drone ship like they have done in the past. SpaceX plans on launching a newly designed Falcon Heavy Rocket based on this upcoming concept in a reusable mode.
While it may not sound like a big deal, this will be a critical junction for Elon Musk and his SpaceX team. The information they gather from this mission will be used for our future mission to Mars. Elon Musk plans on sending human beings to Mars in about three to five years. So, in a literal sense, this mission will be a history in the making moment for all of human kind.
And to watch this special moment go down for the history books, AltspaceVR will be hosting a virtual watch party where people can gather in the VR social space to enjoy this special moment together. People that are interested in this hosted event can RSVP on AltspaceVR. The VR social platform is available on the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, HTC Vive, and traditional PC in 2D mode.
The launch is currently scheduled for no later than Sunday, March 12th, but that may change. Stay tuned.
