Elon Musk Sending His Tesla Roadster Past Mars :o Via SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket On February 6th

February 5th, 2018 by James Ayre

SNIPPET:

I hadn’t intended to write an article on this subject, given our focus here at CleanTechnica on clean tech, but given that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has brought it up a number of times in recent weeks — and released some images of the payload in question — it seems worth doing.

I’m talking here about the first SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launch, which will play host to Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster as a dummy payload, reportedly. That launch is tentatively slated for February 6th, sometime during a 3-hour launch window that opens at 1:30 PM Eastern Time — and has now been granted full approval by the Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation.

As seen in the picture above, Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster is already packed and ready to go…with it being an interesting thing to note that the (apparently) first production car to be sent into space is going to an all-electric one.

Agelbert COMMENT 1:

"The Tesla Roadster in question has apparently undergone some modifications in preparation for the launch, but it’s not quite clear what those would be — a removal of potentially dangerous materials, perhaps?"

I checked that out. I wonder what they did to the tires so they won't blow up in the vaccum of space. 

Even if they modified them to be solid rubber, that would explode too because solid rubber has lots of tiny air pockets in it that expand in vacuum.

Agelbert COMMENT 2:

This is an excellent way to focus world attention on Tesla and Electric Vehicles. The sales of t-shirts with a graphic of this roadster being checked out by an ET in a flying saucer should be as profitable as they are funny.  

Many other advertisements using the EV roadster in space as a symbol of progress  and a sustainable future with a viable biosphere 🌺 🌻 🌼 🌷 🌱 🌲 🌳 🌴 🌵 🌾 🌿 both here AND at Mars can help the peoples of the world turn their back on the polluting energy technologies of the past. 

Hey Elon, hire me and I'll give you lots of other great ideas!
