Those must be the ones who send out RFQs and have to be called and told "just because you can draw it does not mean it can be manufactured". Mind set of if .001" is good then .00001" must be better!

My daughter talked to her friend/roommate who's working at SpaceX and said it was an amazing party.
Like you mentioned, they started early afternoon and went past midnight.
Alot of Uber, Lyft and cab rides home for people.

If the car was actually sent up in its stock earth driving form, maybe only the motor would work for a short period.

The tires would be flat and/or destroyed.

Also the brakes wouldn't work either. The brake fluid would boil over in space.

Transmission fluid would boil over too. Same with battery coolant.
