Ruthless fate awaits Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster floating in space

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.

And the first company to land two rocket boosters, simultaneously, after launch.

Astronomer Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project caught sight of the Tesla speeding through space on February 8, two days after its launch. However, CEO Elon Musk says it's actually a benefit.

"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 centre core separates later and lands on SpaceX's drone ship, named Of Course I Still Love You.

The document also reveals what the Roadster took with it on the journey to eternity a Hot Wheels toy model Roadster on the car's dash with a mini-Starman inside.

And the first company to send a vehicle into space.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Cape Canaveral launch, he said: "It'll be a really huge downer if it blows up".

The hope is that any failure comes far enough into the flight "so we at least learn as much as possible along the way".

"I would consider it a win if it just clears the pad and doesn't blow the pad to smithereens".

The Falcon Heavy consists of three of the company's Falcon 9 rockets joined together, each lending the super-rocket 27 Merlin engines. All those doubts evaporated in our minds with just one launch and one striking red vehicle "driving" in space.Some have likened this moment - or at least the approaching day of humans boarding a spacecraft to Mars - to the days that followed Columbus' discovery of the New World, when the European powers rushed to gain a foothold in the new continent and make important strategic and economic gains.

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.
