Musk, not one to let an opportunity for humor pass, thanked Bezos for the well-wishes - and included a winking, kissing emoji.
On the bright side, SpaceX never meant to reuse the first Falcon Heavy center core stage, or the two that did land successfully, because an upgraded version known as Block 5 is due to fly in the coming months. "It will be in an elliptical orbit with one part of the ellipse being at Earth orbit and one part being at Mars orbit, so it will essentially be an Earth-Mars cycler", Musk said to Florida Today.
"He may be discovered by some future alien race, thinking, 'What were they doing?"
We will update this story live with details about the press conference and what's shared as soon as they are available. Others described it as "stunning" and hailed the "amazing feat of science".

In a groundbreaking first for SpaceX, the firm said it would attempt a triple landing of Falcon Heavy's booster engines. Just a few years ago, SpaceX was the first to fly a reusable, tail-landing rocket that can deliver a satellite or replenish the space station.

To top it all off, a few lucky sky-gazers in California even caught a glimpse of the Falcon Heavy's upper stage performing its final burn, hours after takeoff, putting the infamous Tesla Roadster on a course that will bring it as far out as the asteroid belt. It's heading to chase Mars around the sun, sharing the same orbit-forever approaching the red planet, but never actually reaching it.
Chemical Weapons Attack in Saraqib, Syria The Observatory said an arms depot in Jamraya had been hit, but it could not confirm whether research facilities had been damaged. The monitoring group said the campaign against Ghouta has killed at least 350 civilians, including more than 80 children.
After five years of setbacks, the massive rocket capable of achieving a thrust equivalent to more than 18 Boeing 747 jetliners finally took its maiden flight. "The auto will take at least six months to travel the 200 million miles to Mars".
And, it's expected to remain in orbit for about a billion years.
The launch followed an impressive run of successful paid missions - 20 in all since January 2017.
But Musk said Tuesday that he wouldn't recommend using the Falcon Heavy for crewed moon missions.
