This is light information that will make astronomers and space travel enthusiasts smile. Two years ago, Elon Musk and singer Grimes revealed the birth of their son, baptized “soberly” X Æ A-12. As you might expect, the little boy is already immersed in space, his father being at the head of a major astronautics company in the world, SpaceX.

On Twitter, his mother reported a touching anecdote which illustrates the already strong character of the man. And his perfectionist side. While playing with a model rocket, he exclaimed: “The fucking rocket is too heavy”. And Grimes to explain that he was angry because his rocket had failed to reach… its orbit.

When a user suggests that she buy her a better rocket, the singer confides that it is doomed to failure. “He destroyed them all because he doesn’t realize they aren’t real. As a result, he rips off the boosters and everything trying to imitate a real rocket then accuses me of trickery for giving him fake rockets and gets inconsolable”.

The little boy’s misadventure will obviously bring back memories to SpaceX followers. As a reminder, the company had great difficulty propelling its Falcon 1 launcher at the time. After a first failure in 2006, the second attempt also fails, the second stage engine having disabled prematurely. In 2008, the third test failed, the first and second stages having collided during separation.

It was only on September 28, 2008 that the flight was successful. Falcon 1 will place the RazakSAT satellite into orbit on July 13, 2009.
