Musk to launch a Tesla into space

Tesla announces fastest electric car

Musk expects his Roadster to remain in deep space for a billion of years unless Falcon Heavy blows up on its way to the red planet. The vehicle will then be put into orbit around Mars in its own little capsule while it belts out David Bowie's legendary song "Space Oddity" presumably to aliens to intercept.

However, The Verge also reported that they have confirmed from a person familiar that the payload Musk spoke about on Twitter was in fact, 100 percent real.

This SpaceX launch slated for January will be noteworthy for reasons that go beyond the payload, a cherry-red Tesla Roadster owned by Musk.

Messi's statue in Argentina has its legs cut off
In January, the monument was cut in half from the waist up before being repaired and re-erected by the city government days later. At times it can be hurtful but the best thing about him is that he is direct.

But if SpaceX is open for other ideas, a crash effort by scientists could send a 230-pound probe launched from the Falcon Heavy to fly by Oumuamua, a newly discovered and first asteroid spotted that comes from another star, Andreas Hein of the Initiative for Interstellar Studies told BuzzFeed News.

It is a more powerful rocket that SpaceX hopes to use for missions to the Moon and Mars.

Launching something into orbit really is "rocket science" and such activity is often affected by technology challenges each of which have to be tested and the road to launch near-perfection is littered with the history of lost rockets, and sometimes their cargo. With more than 5.1 million pounds of thrust at sea level, the Falcon Heavy is slated to become the most powerful rocket now in use. The company pushed back Heavy's first flight a couple of times: it was originally gunning for a summer launch but eventually moved it to November (and then again to December). That date has slipped, not least because of early problems with the Falcon 9's engine cluster, and launch failures.
