Elon Musk tweets first photographs of Falcon Heavy rocket

Elon Musk tweets first photographs of Falcon Heavy rocket

All that is soon going to change, according to CEO Elon Musk. The payload will be an original Tesla Roadster, playing Space Oddity, on a billion year elliptic Mars orbit. -, Elon Musk replied with the only sane answer apart from the one we've already touched (media publicity): "I love the thought of a vehicle drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race millions of years in the future".

On Friday, Musk revealed the setup in a photo slideshow posted to Instagram.

Chief Executive shared the photos in a tweet, saying the rocket was now at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Now, as we get closer to the big day, a picture showing Musk's Roadster mounted on the Falcon Heavy's payload attach fitting in a position that would allow it to fit inside the rocket's body, so if there are still people who thought this was a joke, it's either a very expensive one, or - most likely - it's not a joke at all.

Hawthorne-based SpaceX plans to use the Falcon Heavy to.

For example, Musk previously said he planned to launch the "s$3 illiest thing we can imagine" on Falcon Heavy's first test-flight.

But the SpaceX CEO isn't getting carried away with all the excitement surrounding the imminent Falcon Heavy launch, pointing out earlier this year that a lot "can go wrong" with the enormous rocket during its initial, highly complicated missions. Destination is Mars orbit.

The 229.6-foot-tall Falcon Heavy will be able to lift 140,660 pounds to low-Earth orbit. Joy Dunn, an engineer at the company, tweeted on December 1 that "this is legit and of course there will be cameras!"

Last month, we came out with another report after he discovered a new map module in Tesla's recent 2017.44 software update called "Vector Maps".

"Just bear in mind that there is a good chance this monster rocket blows up", Musk reportedly told Plait in an email, "so I wouldn't put anything of irreplaceable sentimental value on it".
