*"What Is the Point of Elon Musk's Big Rocket? The story of the SpaceX Falcon 

Heavy's test flight is two things at once: a step toward a mechanism for cheaper 

commercial space hauling, and — at least as importantly — a massive publicity 

stunt. Musk spends an enormous amount of energy cultivating a nerd-hero aura 

and friendly press." By Rafi Letzter,, Staff Writer | February

*"Biomed CEO Injects Himself with DIY Herpes Vaccine — Why That's Not a \

Good Idea. Traywick touted the self-experimentation to BuzzFeed as an attempt 

to increase scientific transparency and move science forward, but biomedical 

experts say that acting as a human guinea pig does nothing of the sort. A 

single-subject experiment can't show that a treatment works, and it certainly 

can't prove it safe, said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at 

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who noted that he couldn't comment on 

Traywick's experiment specifically."  By Stephanie Pappas,

launched his own Tesla Roadster on SpaceX's first Falcon Heavy rocket Tuesday 

(Feb. 6), headed for an orbit that might have extended out to the orbit of Mars.
