Named biggest threat for vehicle Elon musk in space

Falcon Heavy's side boosters landing side-by-side

The rocket was trying to launch a Tesla auto into orbit around Mars. And its powerful new rocket has captured the attention of many in the space world.

That came when the second stage of the rocket discarded the white nose cone at its tip, revealing the rocket's payload - a cherry red Tesla sports auto owned by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

"The asteroid orbit plot was just a mistake", Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, told Space.com. Our atmosphere protects us from this, but the Tesla will be fully exposed, and according to molecular expert William Carroll will not last a year in the tough conditions.

Falcon Heavy's launch last Tuesday was a test flight, its maiden voyage, meant to prove the concept of the rocket itself (which is in essence three of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets joined together).

Through clouds of steam, smoke and ash, and propelled by 27 engines, the 23-storey rocket roared up into blue skies and out into space.

Falcon Heavy is able to lift 64 tonnes into orbit - the equivalent of five double-decker buses - which is just over twice the weight that can be lifted by the second-most powerful operational rocket, Delta IV Heavy. "We immediately spotted the Tesla Roadster, quite bright... moving image after image across the stars". But was it really now headed for the asteroid belt? The vehicle did not go in the right direction. The entrepreneurial spirit sweeping the space business complements NASA mission, acts as a magnet to bring top talent to the space corridor in Florida and serves to inspire younger generations. However, no time frame has been determined as to when that will happen.

Driving the lofty order goals, Musk says he expects the truck to exceed the performance numbers originally announced for the tractor. However, the technology for such a mission is still not where it needs to be for that trip to be successful.
