Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster spotted floating in space

Bottom line: At last week's awesome Falcon Heavy lauanch, Elon Musk's red Tesla Roadster was meant to go into an orbit that would take it past Mars.

Keep it civilized, keep it relevant, keep it clear, keep it short.

"Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost", the company claims on its website.

The description of this new celestial object also says it "includes a Hot Wheels toy model Roadster on the car's dash with a mini-Starman inside". However, with no outside influence, it's likely to remain at least outwardly presentable for a lot longer. There was no update on the current production rate, despite repeated questions on Wednesday evening's call, which is troubling.

"He appears to be more eager to sell hats and flamethrowers rather than meeting previously stated production targets for Tesla vehicles", Thibault wrote in a note to investors. She and Queenie Yu have been on the frontlines of the fight against Premier Kathleen Wynne's sex education curriculum for three years and Tanya's entry will make sure the subject is not ignored by Doug Ford, Christine Elliott and Caroline Mulroney.

It also has to be acknowledged that SLS is designed to have greater capability than the Falcon Heavy.

"To give you some flavor for optimism for Model Y... we might aim for something like maybe capacity of a million units a year, just for Model Y alone".

The Heavy's first stage is made up of three side boosters, each with nine Merlin engines - the equivalent of strapping two of the Falcon 9's first stage to a strengthened central core.

"I think it looks so ridiculous and impossible". The Falcon Heavy is price-listed at $90 million, a bargain in the business of rockets. "It's there, and it's going to be consistent, but it's much smaller than we thought". Most of the objects in the database are not manmade: It includes "381,106 asteroids, 2,435 comets, 168 planetary satellites, 9 planets, the Sun".

"The Wikimedia Foundation, Wikipedia, Project Gutenberg (e-books), human genomes and other large open-data sets are the priority", he said. In 2012, the company's Dragon spacecraft delivered cargo to the International Space Station, a feat it has repeated several times.

But the comeback will take time. It has no purpose It's just because it's fun and for people to get excited.

"I know the Earth is not a ball".

So, what's the point of all this effort?

According to SpaceX, the BFR will be capable of transporting as many as 100 people, along with all the necessary supplies and gear, to locations as far away as Mars.

"That's the first one I've ever seen", he said.

Which is a little reminiscent of this endeavor, as Starman has Bowie's "Space Oddity" playing on continuous loop for the next billion or so years, or until the power source runs out. It had seemed, before it happened, like something that would occur only in the imagination of science fiction writers and movie makers. The convertible, with a dummy in a space suit at its wheel, is now heading toward an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Tesla this week launched one of its cars into space, but is still waiting for that first quarter of profits.
