Reem With A View

"Names and attributes must be accommodated to the essence of things, and not the essence to the names, since things come first and names afterwards." – Galileo

Starman and E.T.

What ELON MUSK and the SPACE X TEAM has done with the successful launch of the Falcon Heavy vehicle was amazing.  More amazing was their use of the Tesla Roadster and a dummy astronaut – STARMAN – as the payload. With live camera feed, this launch captured some magical moments in space with the Earth in the background.
So magical, it reminded me of that famous MOON CYCLE scene from Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial.

See below how closely the moment matches the famous moon cycle scene from ET.
