Elon Musk Shows Off Tesla Roadster That Is Going To Space

Elon Musk is known for some eccentricity and especially for the well-defined plans, he has for his companies. Both Tesla and SpaceX are in the limelight, with plans for the future and big projects at hand.

To test one of his next rockets, the Falcon Heavy, Elon Musk, a South African-born American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor decided to put a Tesla Roadster as cargo. After some speculation about the truth of this decision, images now appear that prove it. Yes, the South African-born American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor, of course, Elon Musk will even send a Tesla into space.

It was early December that the South African-born American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor, of course, Elon Musk announced on his Twitter account https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/936782477502246912 to the world the plans of SpaceX for his next Falcon Heavy cargo rocket. This will be the largest and most capable of its entire fleet, preparing to carry loads larger than normal.

To start the first tests, SpaceX will have to put a dummy load, usually made of cement or metal blocks. The South African-born American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor, Elon Musk decided, in his style, to make this load more interesting.

This first cargo will then be his Tesla Roadster, which will accompany the Falcon Heavy to the orbit of Mars, where they expect you to stay for a long time. The images now placed on Elon Musk’s Instagram personal account prove that this step is about to be given.

Here’s what Elon Musk stated on his Instagram account “A Red Car for the Red Planet Test flights of new rockets usually contains mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks. That seemed extremely boring. Of course, anything boring is terrible, especially companies, so we decided 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”.

These images show the Tesla Roadster being prepared and placed on a platform, with the two halves of the Falcon Heavy fuselage at its side. A few hours before, one of these images had appeared in Reddit, but unofficially.

The South African-born American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor, of course, Elon Musk is aware that this test can go very badly and the Tesla does not even get out of the orbit of planet earth, with the possibility of the Falcon Heavy simply explode on the take-off.

This is, however, a great way to promote their two companies, Tesla and SpaceX, proving that Elon Musk’s ideas are sometimes out of the ordinary and even they hit it right.
