In 1967, famed landscape artist Peter Hurd unveiled a portrait of then-President Lyndon B. Johnson. It was to be Johnson's official portrait and would hang in the White House in perpetuity. There was one problem: LBJ hated it.

SpaceX is gearing up to launch its Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center this afternoon. The rocket is the most powerful to be launched in the U.S. since the Saturn V rocket, which carried NASA’s first astronauts to the moon. SpaceX says the launch will carry the largest payload of any rocket since Saturn V in 1973.

The test launch will also carry Musk’s personal Tesla Roadster into space as payload, which will (ideally) careen into orbit around Mars while playing David Bowie's "Space Oddity."
