Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. Earlier this week, Elon Musk's private space transport company SpaceX launched its first Falcon Heavy rocket from the same location that NASA used for its Apollo missions. The rocket had an almost flawless launch, sending a Tesla car containing a mannequin (dubbed "Rocket Man" by some) into space to orbit Mars, and the company was even able to recover two out of its three boosters perfectly (the third missed its landing zone by roughly 30 feet, apparently) for future reuse. I'm amazed by the hard work that Musk and team are putting in at both of these companies, not to mention his other business ventures.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
