Here's how you can get a job working for Elon Musk's SpaceX

Tesla to revamp in-car navigation system Tesla Says Navigation System "Lights-Years Ahead" Slated for Early 2018

Musk, the CEO and chief technology officer of SpaceX, posted photos to his Instagram account revealing the "midnight cherry" electric sports auto being prepared for launch on the company's first Falcon Heavy rocket. Not the most subtle of promotions, for sure. Musk stated in a tweet, "Payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity".

"Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks".

The Roadster will also be playing David Bowie's Space Oddity, and is aiming to enter a "billion year elliptic Mars orbit", should the launch go perfectly to plan. Even still, this is some unforgettable imagery, which will likely burn itself into our collective minds as we think of Tesla, Musk or Space X. Which is probably the point.

Earlier this year, Musk posted a teaser showing how the Falcon Heavy launch might look when it takes place in a matter of weeks. Musk posted these gleaming images after a rogue photo of the Roadster showed up on Reddit.




Photos shared on Instagram show the Tesla Roadster being prepped for the Falcon Heavy rocket. "Destination is Mars orbit". The Falcon Heavy is a reusable heavy-lift rocket created to get large payloads into space. The 230-foot-tall, three-booster rocket is scheduled for its maiden launch no earlier than January 2018. Given that Falcon Heavy can put up to 119,000 pounds of cargo into Earth's orbit, the 2,700-lb curb weight of the Roadster is trivial.

The Falcon Heavy's two side-mounted boosters and central core are created to be reusable, flying back to Earth to land on land- and sea-based platforms.

Doubling down on his mission to never be boring, he also said that the vehicle would be blasting the famous 1972 song Space Oddity by David Bowie. Musk also told Plait that he's willing to consider launching other objects inside the Tesla suggested by the public.
