ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech students designed a satellite that is planned to go up on the third Falcon Heavy flight and send data back to Earth -- so now they will be looking at their own work in space in the next six months.

The students who worked on the project were watching Tuesday's launch on a huge projector screen, taking notes and figuring out what their launch is going to look like -- and talking about how the industry has changed.

It's a whole new game, now that space has become a private industry -- and that comes with a few quirks.

Elon Musk launched a Tesla Roadster into space on Tuesday -- and his rocket will be playing David Bowie's Space Oddity non-stop, which they think just adds to his charm.

They still have work to do before their launch later this year.
