  • Rendition of SpaceX's BFR launch vehicle

Always willing to up the stakes of an already hard situation, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said the first flight of his company's Falcon Heavy rocket will be used to send a Tesla Roadster into space.

Musk uncovered that the payload inside the rocket would be his own particular Tesla Roadster (in midnight cherry shading, no less) which dispatch while playing Space Oddity by David Bowie.

The rocket is a blend of three of SpaceX's Falcon 9 strapped together; subsequently, it will have thrice the thrust of one single Falcon 9 rocket. Falcon Heavy missions will send large payloads to orbit inside a composite fairing, which will protect satellites during delivery to destinations including low Earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit, and geosynchronous orbit. It will have its maiden voyage somewhere at the beginning of 2018 (current launch date is set somewhere in January), and people wondered what it could use as a payload. Rather fittingly, the vehicle will play David Bowie's 1969 classic "Space Oddity" as it orbits Mars. The Falcon Heavy can also transport a Dragon spacecraft. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.

Elon Musk says the first test launch of SpaceX's massive new rocket will happen next month.
