Christmas has come early for space enthusiasts.
Chris Bergin, managing editor of space publication NASA Spaceflight.com, sent out a tickling tweet yesterday after he met with SpaceX.
Tease: It may take weeks, or even months, to be announced, but what I've just been shown is THE most exciting thing EVER. #SpaceX— Chris B - NSF (@NASASpaceflight) October 6, 2015
Admittedly, even Bergin though the tweet was vague.
That feeling when one of your vaguest tweets is the one that goes semi-viral.... pic.twitter.com/pMPeQqoSZP— Chris B - NSF (@NASASpaceflight) October 8, 2015
However, that did not stop the rest of world from getting excited.

@NASASpaceflight can you say if it is Hyperloop related or spaceflight related?— Simon Lachinger (@simonmox) October 6, 2015
SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk has hinted in the past of grand plans to take us to Mars and build a hyper loop.
He founded the company in 2002 with the sole goal of enabling people to live on other planets.
However, Musk has his fingers in quite a few pies.
In September his car company, Tesla, unveiled its first electric family car complete with a biodefense weapon mode.
Musk's ideas are known for their grandeur and sometimes eccentric nature. So, we remain poised whatever "the most exciting thing" is - as longs as he's not planning to nuke Mars again.
