Why NASA is keeping tabs on Elon Musk's roadster

The Tesla overshot its original trajectory

Reports from independent space news website AmericaSpace and a tweet by a managing editor of initially claimed that the Air Force had conducted a "scuttling operation" (an intentional sinking) on a first-stage booster that successfully helped launch a satellite into orbit. "People who believe that the Earth is a globe because 'they saw a car in space on the Internet' must be the new incarnation of 'It's true".

"My thought was a trans atmospheric skip vehicle, but I could just be hopeful", a UFO enthusiasts said.

Let us also be clear about another thing: This has nothing to do with Tesla Inc's performance as a company, even if the stock market sometimes implies otherwise.

Also on board the Tesla is a durable storage device, called an Arch, loaded with the text of Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" sci-fi trilogy.

She and her crew was supposed to be on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in 2010 when it blew up. Putting a Tesla Roadster into orbit atop it was a stroke of marketing genius; imagine the slogan: "A bazillion miles without a charge!"

Organics, in this case, doesn't mean the bits of the car that came from animals, such as its leathers.

"We managed to take dozen of images, and we used a group of them to show the trail of the object across the stars". "It gives me confidence that BFR is really quite efficient".

Its main base will be the National Institute of Aerospace Technology in Torrejon de Ardoz, Madrid, with support from the Maspalomas station in Gran Canaria, while project leaders are exploring the possibility of a third headquarters in the North Pole. In fact, last week's launch represents a very important step in the progress of space flight. He then took that money and decided to build a new car company, making only electric cars.

Asked if he was worried his rocket would suffer the same fate as the Soviet craft, Musk answered: "No".

O'Black, a production supervisor, manages a team of 20 avionics technicians that built the second stage of the rocket. The culture at the forward-thinking SpaceX is much different. They can even be seen directly through the windshield. But that could soon change now that a key piece of manufacturing equipment is ready to go. Instead, they were gently returned to Earth using retro rockets for subsequent reuse on other launches, a procedure that Musk has already pioneered on lighter versions of his Falcon rockets.

Tesla says it still expects to manufacture 2,500 cars a week by the end of Q1 in March and be at the 5,000 cars per week level by the end of Q2 on June 30 - subject to unforeseen circumstances altering those projections.

Over the past few days, a few astronomers did just that to get shots of the Tesla before it drifts too far away to be seen from Earth. The Falcon Heavy rocket consists of 3 Falcon 9 first stages, and each Falcon 9 rocket is powered by 9 Merlin engines.

But with the Falcon Heavy launch and the Tesla Roadster's journey to space, the two companies are effectively already conjoined.
