Elon Musk Reveals Photos of Tesla Roadster Launching on Falcon Heavy Rocket

UFO sighted over the skies of Los Angeles freaks the citizens

At first, when Elon Musk tweeted it out earlier this month, it seemed like something of an April Fool's joke.

The image shows what appears to be a first generation Tesla Roadster (not the recently unveiled next gen) on a platform fitted on a SpaceX payload attach fitting. Musk posted these gleaming images after a rogue photo of the Roadster showed up on Reddit.

The maiden launch of the Falcon Heavy, with the Tesla Roadster, is targeted for January from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. If successful, the launch will put the auto on a path to intercept the orbit of Mars.

Musk notes that rocket payloads for first test flights are generally just things that provide weight to simulate real cargo, like blocks of concrete or steel. "Of course, anything boring is bad, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel". Instead, Musk chose to launch his own Roadster into an elliptical orbit around the sun, which he says should last a billion years.

"Red vehicle for a red planet", Musk replied to a Twitter user in early December. It was later clarified that it'll aim for an orbit around the sun that will, at times, put the auto and Mars at equal distances from the sun. -, Elon Musk replied with the only sane answer apart from the one we've already touched (media publicity): "I love the thought of a vehicle drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race millions of years in the future". Musk's response suggests that Tesla is thinking far behind simple map updates with its new navigation software, and instead will be making top-to-bottom changes to how the system works overall across its vehicles.
