At 17 minutes past midnight Eastern time Friday, reporters got a cryptic e-mail in their inboxes: “Elon Musk will make an important SpaceX announcement today, Friday, April 25 at 1 p.m. ET at a Washington, DC venue to be announced shortly. The announcement will be followed immediately by Q&A.”

That was it. No further explanation. What has the entrepreneur got up his sleeve? Has he found a way to loft rockets into space on Tesla batteries? Has he made first contact with aliens? Maybe he is an alien?

Whatever it is, [Washington Post has it covered](http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/04/25/elon-musk-announces-mysterious-announcement-mysteriously/). They’re heading to this event later this afternoon, so check back there — or on Twitter — for updates.

The latest announcement comes one week after SpaceX successfully launched, for the first time, a reusable Falcon 9 rocket. Here’s a video of the new technology in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UjWqQPWmsY
