The Falcon Heavy rocket with Tesla Roadster car will head to the planet Mars, and after that it will start moving in an elliptical orbit around the Sun.
Presented at the end of last year, the electric vehicle Tesla Roadster will become a demonstration payload for the first launch of the new Falcon Heavy heavy-weight rocket project SpaceX Ilona Mask. The flight should take place on February 6 this year.
About plans to launch the car on a rocket into space Mask shared on Twitter last month. Web users took his post with a great deal of skepticism. However, later photos of the SpaceX installation platform with Tesla Roadster belonging personally to the Mask appeared. And now the founder of all these projects announced the start date.
If the launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket succeeds, it will get the title of the most powerful in the world. Before that, her flight into space was repeatedly postponed. On February 6, 2018, the launch will be carried out from the launch complex Apollo 39A of the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral.
