A New Space Race?

Hark, he has launched his car in space.
Is this the start of a new race?

The Tesla's an electric car of sorts.
But the extension cord is way too short!

It wasn't headed for the stars,
But now it will go beyond mars.

No other car is in this race,
Now how will Elon Musk save face?

(cont.) ....My, Bri's, company manufactures INFINITELY-long extension cords for such uses as is mentioned in the poem. of course they are INFINITELY-expensive (not JUST infinitely-expansive) . call me! [[ we also make Infinitely-LONGGGG CAMERA LENSES so you can shoot such a photo from Earth, not needing a computer hookup to space. ]] (cont.) ...
just so i know we are talking about the SAME Elon Musk! : Elon Reeve Musk FRS is a South African-born American business magnate, investor and engineer. He is the founder, CEO, and lead designer of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla, Inc.; and co-founder and CEO of Neuralink....... need long cords? ? (cont.) ..
Thanks KIm. This was major news in the last day or two. I didn't find it on Foxnews.com today, but SpaceX is on News.Google.com if you scroll down to the Science section which is right after the sports.
I guess I am out of touch with the news. I never heard of Elon Musk or SpaceX. Shame on me, I suppose. Fun picture, though, and nice rhyming.
