WATCH: Tech Billionaire Elon Musk Spent $100M To Send A Giant Wheel Of Cheese Into Space

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, billionaire technology entrepreneur (and my future boyfriend) Elon Musk introduced himself and his new spacecraft company, SpaceX, to America at large.  At some point in the near future, Musk hopes his spacecrafts can send humans into outer space, but in the meantime he has to test his rockets with some sort of human analogue. And since everyone stopped using monkeys after 1960, the next best thing…is apparently a big wheel of gourmet Gruyere cheese. Total cost to send this cheese where no cheese has gone before: $100,000,000.

Check it out to see if he ate the cheese after its voyage into geosynchronous orbit!
