Tesla Roadster 1.0 Ready for Mars Voyage

Tesla Roadster 1.0 Ready for Mars Voyage

Many people took Elon Musk's claim to send his Roadster to Mars on SpaceX's Falcon Heavy Rocket as a joke. Billionaire Musk is also chief executive officer of electric-car maker Tesla, Inc. This spacecraft will carry one of his famed Tesla cars named Tesla Roadster, which the CEO plans to send into the orbit of Mars, making it officially the first auto to be sent in space should the success follow through.

But if Musk has left any room for doubt, it is now gone with a striking photo he posted to Instagram on Friday afternoon.

Elon Musk said in his Instagram post, that usually, test flights of new rockets carry mass simulators in the form of steel blocks or concrete.

"Of course, anything boring is bad, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel. The payload will be an original Tesla Roadster, playing Space Oddity, on a billion year elliptic Mars orbit". "If they do 30 launches next year, it will be spectacular, but the big story for 2018 is Falcon Heavy and Commercial Crew". Falcon Heavy is getting ready at Cape Canaveral for its final pre-launch tests. It will be the strongest most powerful rocket ever created with its three boosters.

In February 2015, SpaceX launched another Falcon 9 fitted with the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite, aiming to observe the extreme emissions from the sun that affect power grids and communications systems on Earth.

The Tesla won't be going to the planet Mars itself, as Musk told Phil Plait, an astronomer and writer. "Destination is Mars orbit".

While there was some confusion as to whether Musk was actually serious when he first mentioned sending his vehicle to float in "deep space for a billion years", a Reddit photo that surfaced earlier in the week seemed to lend credence to the idea that the eccentric CEO was, in fact, planning on doing just that. Musk also told Plait that he's willing to consider launching other objects inside the Tesla suggested by the public.
