SpaceX’s highly anticipated Falcon Heavy Rocket is scheduled to finally be launched, however, many people are interested in the fact that a car will also be included in the payload.
The Tesla Roadster, the company’s all-electric sports car, will eventually separate from the spacecraft where it will then coast through space at seven miles per second.
The vehicle will be in a hyperbolic orbit on its way to — and eventually beyond — Mars, an idea which is tough to even imagine.
Luckily, a new SpaceX animation shows us exactly how they expect to pull the feat off and I have to say, it looks rather impressive.
The Falcon Heavy launch is expected to take place at 1:30 PM ET today.
