Steven Souza Jr.'s home run might beat the SpaceX rocket to the stars
Souza Jr. launches homer out of Earth's orbit
As some of the more scientifically-minded among you may know, a rocket was launched into orbit yesterday, and if you were lucky, you could have watched it live.
Yes, that's the right link -- we're not talking about the rocket SpaceX sent to the International Space Station. We're talking about Steven Souza Jr.'s actual moonshot during the first inning Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game.
Elon Musk's rocket didn't even accomplish all of its goals:
Ascent successful. Dragon enroute to Space Station. Rocket landed on droneship, but too hard for survival.- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 14, 2015
But Souza Jr.'s did, powering the Rays to a 3-2 win. So, if you want a reliable space tourism provider, we'd suggest getting on the list for SouzaX now.
