And, most importantly, the names of more than 6,000 SpaceX employees, etched on a plaque on the attachment fitting between the Falcon Heavy upper stage and the Tesla. "As we ramp production of both Model 3 and our energy products while keeping tight control of operating expenses, our quarterly operating income should turn sustainably positive at some point in 2018". This means that the Roadster definitely won't be orbiting Mars as Musk first announced it would in a tweet last December.
"Don't Panic": The UFO was probably some space junk or a satellite. No rocket with such capability was available then, let alone the technology to reach the red planet and land on it with such big modules.

The rocket is created to lift the equivalent weight of five double-decker London buses - 64 tons - into space.
They looked on as the nose cone housing the Tesla was stripped away, exposing the electric auto to the vacuum of space as David Bowie's "Life on Mars" played, ushering it to orbit.
SpaceX also reaffirmed its title as the only company to ever wreck a rocket core by trying to land it on a floating barge at sea - and missing. Solar deployment slowed in part because the company is shifting its focus to profitability and higher-margin-projectsm, Musk added.
