Elon Musk to Say Bye to His Own Tesla Roadster

It's also the rocket Musk wants to use for sending humans towards Mars in the near future.

Perhaps Musk drunk tweeted the original story?

SpaceX's new rocket will fly Tesla Roadster- the world's quickest car- to Mars

It is noted that the rocket will launch into orbit of Mars own auto Mask Tesla Roadster, which will play the song of David Bowie's Space Oddity.

The arranged goal is Mars and, all being great, Musk said his vehicle would be in the planet's circle for "a billion years". Now we know what he meant.

Falcon Heavy is a beefed up version of the company's Falcon 9 rocket which, along with its Dragon craft capsule, has been used multiple times to bring supplies to astronauts on board the International Space Station, before safely returning to Earth. Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. The company pushed back Heavy's maiden flight a couple of times: it was originally gunning for a summer launch but eventually moved it to November (and then again to December). It's unclear if the company will attempt to recover the boosters of this maiden rocket. On the last day of November, SpaceX announced that it had to push the launch back yet again to next year.

Of course, Musk also said earlier this fall at the International Astronautical Congress that he plans to pour all of SpaceX's resources into an even bigger rocket architecture, known as the Interplanetary Transport System (or Big Fucking Rocket, for short). Currently, Falcon 9 can bring just over 50,000lb to lower Earth orbit.
