Launching a auto into space sounds like something Musk would do, but this is the first confirmation that it's actually happening.
Two days ago, Space X CEO and Tesla founder Elon Musk announced plans to launch his "midnight cherry Tesla Roadster" into space as part of Space X's maiden voyage in January. Expectations are high that Tesla could hit its production goal of 5,000 units per week in the first quarter, The expected volume production date for the Model 3 could also align with a rollout of the company's revamped navigation software.
"Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks". "Of course, anything boring is awful, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel". The trajectory: a "billion year elliptic Mars orbit".
Chief Executive shared the photos in a tweet, saying the rocket was now at Cape Canaveral in Florida. He expects it to be ready for launch by early 2018.

Synaptics claims that its technology is faster than the 3-D face recognition technology introduced by Apple recently. The company has actually begun production of the sensor, dubbed the "Clear ID in-display fingerprint scanner".
But, noticeably, the reusable rocket system is missing the clamshell top, or fairing, in the images.
Earlier this year, Musk posted a teaser showing how the Falcon Heavy launch might look when it takes place in a matter of weeks.
"Red vehicle for a red planet", Musk replied to a Twitter user in early December. Joy Dunn, an engineer at the company, tweeted on December 1 that "this is legit and of course there will be cameras!" In other words, don't be surprised if it ends up in an updated version of Musk's blooper video.
Both Musk and Carmack have experience in building rockets.
