John Mayer Made This Fan's Dream Come True By Playing Their Guitar

So you're John Mayer. You've dazzled and crooned to crowds the world over. You're about to play "Gravity," one of your most legendary hits. How do you make it special? How about playing with a fan's guitar. And that is exactly what Meyer did. At a recent concert he played, a fan passed a guitar to the front, hoping Mayer would play it. 

He immediately obliged, much to the appreciation of the crowd, and continues playing the entire song with his fan's guitar. Not only did he play a set with it, but he signed the guitar and tuned it for the fan as well.

John Mayer takes fan's guitar on stage and plays his hit gravity and then signs and tunes the guitar before returning it.

Watch The First Moments of NASA's Crew Dragon Spacecraft Launch

Don't have time to watch or fast-forward through 6 hours of filler coverage? We've grabbed the perfect shots from SpaceX and NASA's joint spacecraft launch of the Crew Dragon. This is the first commercial spacecraft in history to bring astronauts into space, and was designed by the tech giant Elon Musk with his SpaceX commercial space program. With the launch a complete success, and the window narrowing after inclement weather, the successful launch was a massive achievement for commercial space travel, and the potential is massive for scaling this to even greater heights. Next stop, Mars.

Launch highlights of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft as it carries two astronauts into space to the International Space Station as the first commercial spacecraft to bring astronauts into space. The cover gif is an immediate close up and then zoom out of SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft launching and the thrust trail it leaves as it rockets into the atmosphere and into space.

Estes Model Rocket Launches in GIFs

No matter who you are or where you're from, there's one thing we can all agree on: rockets are cool. Most of us don't have the brain capacity to become rocket scientists, but the next best thing is available to everyone: model rockets (or awesome paper airplanes). At the top of the model rocket hierarchy is Estes, a globally known company with the best model rockets around. While building model rockets is fun, the best bit is launching them into the sky and seeing them reach the heavens. We captured ten of the best Estes model rocket launches in GIFs, so you can experience the awesomeness of a rocket launch minus the effort of making a model rocket yourself. You are welcome.

You should probably just watch all of her hilarious videos on her YouTube channel. If you like to watch things exploding, check out NASA's test megarocket fuel tank exploding with liquid nitrogen.
