Elon Musk’s off-earth vision

siliconreview Elon Musk’s off-earth vision

If you feel the world is turning into a boring place, then you really need to have a look at the real-life Tony Stark, Elon Musk’s next mission.

While the entire world is busy criticizing the man behind Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk has already tightened the seat belt for its next mission that involves SpaceX’s mega-rocket, Falcon Heavy, and Tesla’s all-new Roadster.

The tech billionaire Elon Musk is planning to launch a Tesla Roadster to Mars this coming January with the car’s stereo playing David Bowie's ‘Space Oddity’ on loop. Musk made an announcement on Twitter, revealing about the first flight of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, that it will blast off from Cape Canaveral, site of the historic Apollo 11 mission with his car on board.

Falcon Heavy to launch next month from Apollo 11 pad at the Cape. Will have double thrust of next largest rocket. Guaranteed to be exciting, one way or another.” Elon Musk twitted. “The payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity. The destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn’t blow up on the ascent.”

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket on the planet, and the mega rocket contains twice the thrust as the next largest rocket. According to SpaceX, it's intended to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with the crew to the Moon or Mars. 

According to Elon Musk, except any unforetold explosions, the rocket is also reusable, unlike the Tesla Roadster which will be in deep space for a billion years or so.
