Tesla Roadster of Elon Musk swim outside Mars: You will remember that back in February, Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time, in which there was a cherry red Tesla roadster and a dummy driver named “Storman.” Now, about nine months later, the vehicle has made its way behind the orbit of Mars.
On Saturday, SpaceX shared the current location of the roadster in a tweet; it shows that it has moved ahead from the red planet and is definitely for the loop towards the Earth. In August 2019, we hope to cross our planet’s orbit.
SpaceX wrote, “Next stop, restaurants at the end of the universe,” Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy Novel / TV Show / Movie. “A” Don Not Panic “sticker, a famous phrase from Adams, ‘masterpiece, sits on the car’s dashboard.

According to the website Jisti Roadster.com, which tracks the location of Tesla, Storman is currently 180 million miles from Earth and 133 million miles away from Mars, which is moving 21,050 miles per hour from the planet. The vehicle has been traveled far enough to drive the roads around the world 16.5 times, and every 557 days is set to enter the Sun’s orbit.
While most rocket test flights use steel or concrete as cargo, Musk said: “It seemed very boring.”
They said, “Of course, some boring is terrible, especially the companies, so we decided to send something unusual, which we feel.”
Storman has been employed in a working SpaceX space, which the company says helps to test it in the preparation of flights with human employees.
