Is Elon Musk Launching his vehicle into Space? Likely

SpaceX will use the first Falcon Heavy to send a Tesla Roadster to Mars, Elon Musk says

Elon Musk plans to send a sports car to Mars on its Falcon Heavy rocket

Falcon Heavy rocket is a part of SpaceX's fleet along with Falcon 9 and the Dragon spacecraft, to colonize Mars by 2024. Rather fittingly, the auto will play David Bowie's 1969 classic "Space Oddity" as it orbits Mars.

SpaceX earlier posted an animation detailing the capabilities of the huge new booster, which Musk boasts has twice the thrust of the next largest rocket.

The first Falcon Heavy's "payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity", Musk wrote on Twitter, referencing the famous David Bowie song.

To put that figure in perspective, Spaceflight Now notes that the Falcon Heavy-at more than 229 feet tall and 3.1 million pounds-will have more thrust than any conventional rocket currently 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).

"She will remain in space for billions of years, if not explode at the start", said Musk.

Redmond has since played down the incident, stating there was nothing aggressive or offensive in what Guardiola said to him. Guardiola said: "I have played against millions of managers and the different ways they play".

SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, has recently tweeted that the company's massive new rocket called the Falcon Heavy will be launched in January.

Falcon Heavy is the sequel to SpaceX's Falcon 9.

It's an impressive piece of engineering, able to lift into orbit three times more than the current successful Falcon 9 can (63.8 metric tonnes, compared with 22.8 metric tonnes).

SpaceX wants to send their first cargo mission to the red planet in 2022.

SpaceX also plans to be able to recover all three rocket cores that power the "Falcon Heavy", just like it has done over the previous year with main rocket booster stage of its "Falcon 9" rockets, according to The Verge. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.
