When SpaceX launches its Falcon Heavy rocket today the payload will be a $100,000 Tesla from the collection of Elon Musk. The owner of Tesla and SpaceX, Musk said he loves the idea of sending a car into space...drifting apparently endlessly through space to, perhaps, be found by a alien race.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk has shared new pictures of the electric sports car set to ride the first Falcon Heavy rocket into space Tuesday. The images show a spacesuit-clad dummy passenger dubbed “Starman” strapped into the Tesla’s driver’s seat. https://t.co/j9nQKPiCdX pic.twitter.com/H2uYwCviam— Spaceflight Now (@SpaceflightNow) February 5, 2018
