Hiyya Steve my immediate thought was how much drag that car would have caused unless it was in pod of some sort.

Suppose it was just as well it was an electric car otherwise they would had a heck of a job staring it up

Will take a quick look over in 10 to see your post. Haven't used 10 for some time now as I am not really fan of it so don't get to seeing much of what is happening there.

Yea, it was inside a launch pod there's five more photos here, scroll down to about the middle of the article.

You've probably seen my post about the failure off the middle booster to land on the barge.

Yep Steve just amazing and I wonder why we haven't heard much about the Falcon on TV seems a shame as the technology certainly has progressed since the previous launch systems.

That thing must be really so powerful it isn't funny. So is this a government funded project as I thought some bureaucrats would have frowned on the car being inside.

I'm going to answer your questions in the reverse order that you've asked.

I heard during the launch it is rated at 5.1 million pounds of thrust.
No, this is not government funded it is entirely backed by Elon Musk although I wouldn't doubt that he's getting for lack of a better term "considerations for his efforts", such as he didn't have to build the launch pad or ancillary buildings he rents them.

Because it is let's say a semi-private organization most news organizations will tape it for later broadcasting. The only live showing that I could find was on one of our cable channels MSNBC, and they cut to a commercial break at T- 3:00 and didn't come back until T- 0:58,

It's the way the world spins anymore John, money talks, bullshite walks.

Elon Musk walks the walk. This launch was very impressive. The 2 side rockets landing for reuse was also very impressive. The middle rocket had some landing engine failures so it hit the water. This was after all a test flight and they will learn from this one failure.
I think the Tesla roadster payload rather than a chunk of concrete was great marketing.

The middle one was the only one that hadn't landed before, maybe next time they should use three proven rockets.

I saw the launch and landing 'live' on Fox News.
I don't really get into rocket launches but that was amazing.
I car was a sales pitch for the car Elon Musk also makes and also probably a tax deductible.

Smart move.

First Light...

Surprises in signal from cosmic dawn also hint at presence of dark matter.

Quote:
Astronomers have for the first time spotted long-sought signals of light from the earliest stars ever to form in the Universe — around 180 million years after the Big Bang.

The signal is a fingerprint left on background radiation by hydrogen that absorbed some of this primordial light. The evidence hints that the gas that made up the early Universe was colder than predicted. This, physicists say, is a possible sign of dark matter’s influence. If confirmed, the discovery could mark the first time that dark matter has been detected through anything other than its gravitational effects.

“This is the first time we’ve seen any signal from this early in the Universe, aside from the afterglow of the Big Bang,” says Judd Bowman, an astronomer at Arizona State University in Tempe who led the work, which is published in Nature1 on 28 February. “If it’s true, this is major news,” says Saleem Zaroubi, a cosmologist at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Other teams will need to confirm the signal but, so far, the finding seems to be robust, he says. “It’s very exciting stuff. This is a period in the Universe’s history we know very little about.”
