What will become of the car Elon Musk launched into space?

Starman's journey creates online frenzy after SpaceX launch

"It gives me a lot of faith for our next architecture", Musk said Tuesday night, after the Falcon Heavy's launch.

Congratulations to SpaceX for successfully launching their Falcon Heavy rocket from the Kennedy Space Center on its first test flight.

But what will actually happen to the brilliant red sports car hurtling through the galaxy?

Notably, customer deposits for Model 3, as well as the recently announced Semi and Roadster became a major balance sheet item for Tesla, totaling $858 million at the end of 2017, up from $663 million a year earlier.

Tesla is the premier, aspirational car brand for millennials. Tesla CEO Elon Musk now expects the company to conduct the coast-to-coast autonomous drive in up to six months. So he picked his own luxurious Tesla roadster. Wall Street and automotive analysts are closely following the problem-plagued production ramp of the Model 3, the electric sedan that represents Tesla's ambition to transform itself into a mass-market automaker and start turning a profit.

Materials with fewer carbon bonds will be ripped apart first and eventually even the plastic woven into the convertible's glass windshields will disintegrate. We'd have way better CGI if it was fake. Tesla hasn't revealed much about the car's trajectory.

That did not stop the scepticism and the Flat Earth Society took the opportunity to remind their followers that not everything you see on the internet can be believed.

More than likely, they will remain drifting through the vacuum of space for generations to come. "They had engine to engine fire issues". As a side effect this camera feed from the payload also provided yet another proof that the Earth is not flat - a subject about which Musk has previously been vocal.

While the change of route could look embarrassing for SpaceX, it might also encourage more private companies to enlist its services.

Like other celestial bodies, the Roadster will stay in the sky, rising and setting daily. Every modern space mission is required to think about clearing up after itself.

That's based on current projections, but things can always change.

In 1968-1972 the Kuibyshev OKB-276 on the basis of NK-15 was developed by the Assembly of the NK-33, the thrust of which is currently second only to the toxic engines RD-253 (created in 1963 Khimki OKB-456) and modern units Merlin 1D (company SpaceX). Now, Boeing too is in the race to Mars, which will be exciting to watch from the St. Louis perspective.

In the original plan, the car and the dummy that is sat in it would have gone into orbit between Mars and Earth, slowly passing around the solar system.

Tuesday's mission was expected to bring as many as 100,000 visitors to the coast, though Florida's Space Coast Office of Tourism said actual numbers won't be available until later this month.

Where will Tesla get the lithium it desperately needs? "We're going to productize the factory".
