SpaceX to send a Tesla Roadster into outer space

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

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

"'Falcon Heavy" to launch next month from "Apollo 11' pad at the Cape [Cape Canaveral, Florida]".

When Falcon Heavy lifts off in 2017, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. Saudi Arabia also announced a $1bn investment in Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, The Spaceship Company and Virgin Orbit with the aim of creating a space-centric entertainment industry. The Falcon Heavy rocket features 27 Merlin engines and boasts at least double the thrust of any other rocket on the market.

Musk uncovered that the payload inside the rocket would be his own particular Tesla Roadster (in midnight cherry shading, no less) which dispatch while playing Space Oddity by David Bowie.

The rocket's triumvirate of boosters give Falcon Heavy substantially more thrust than Falcon 9 though, allowing the larger rocket to carry more than 140,000lb into lower Earth orbit and 37,000lb to Mars.

In the meantime, the Falcon Heavy is meant to boost the amount of cargo SpaceX can take into space for its customers. It was originally supposed to be launched in 2013 or 2014; however, it is now scheduled for January 2018 launch.

As a result of last night's emphatic victory, it seems all but certain that Ngannou will fight the champ, Stipe Miocic , next. But, Miocic wrestled at a higher level in college (NCAA Division 1 vs.NJCAA), and he also has very, very, unsafe hands.


It has said that reused rockets will be a part of the maiden launch of the Falcon Heavy, which is essentially three Falcon 9 rockets, the company's current workhorse, strapped together.

The rocket will be capable of lifting more than 54 metric tons, which is equal to a 737 jetliner full of fuel, luggage, crew, and passengers. As if bringing humans to the Red Planet were not hard enough, he has now announced he wants to send his Tesla sports vehicle too.

Elon Musk is all set to send the first human settlers to Mars by 2024.

Elon Musk ultimately wants to build a mega-rocket known as the Interplanetary Transport System, which will basically make the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy obsolete, as well as take on their duties.
