Tesla to Launch the Roadster to Orbit Mars

Tesla’s new car—Tesla Roadster, which will be sent to space atop the first Falcon Heavy Rocket, is ready for launch at SpaceX, as pictures have been revealed by the company in December 2017.

Elon Musk posted on Instagram, a series of photographs of the prepped up car between the caps of the rocket. The successor to the Falcon 9 is this one, which essentially has three boosters strapped together to add enough thrust to make it the most powerful rocket in the world. Through this launch, SpaceX will be able to send bigger payloads to space.

SpaceX does not want to put a valuable payload on the very first flight, which Musk also admitted could end with an explosion. So the company plans to use a dummy payload instead. “Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks. That seemed extremely boring. Of course, anything boring is terrible, especially companies, so we decided to send something unusual, something that made us feel.” Musk wrote on Instagram.

“Destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn’t blow up on ascent.” He added.

It was initially unclear whether Elon was joking about the whole post, however, it has now been clarified and confirmed that he actually is talking about sending the car to Mars, as long as it is not impacted negatively in any way.

The launch of this is expected to augment growth of the aerospace materials, which are used to provide exceptional features to aircrafts. Such materials are designed to withstand high pressures and temperatures, stress resistance, chemical resistance, durability and are also required to be lightweight, as revealed in aerospace materials market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
