Where we're going, we don't need roads! This is the final selfie from Starman, the mannequin in the red Tesla launched yesterday and deployed by the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket. The massive Tesla battery could only power a livestream from space for 12 hours. Now Starman and his ride are headed into asteroid territory.
The car was supposed to be put on a path around the Sun that would take the vehicle out to the distance of Mars’ orbit. But the rocket carrying the car seems to have overshot that trajectory and has put the Tesla in an orbit that extends out into the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
