Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster over earth.
Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster is an electric sports car that served as the dummy payload for the Falcon Heavy test flight on February 6, 2018. A mannequin named Starman sits at the driving seat wearing a spacesuit. The 2008 Tesla Roadster car and Falcon Heavy rocket are both products of Elon Musk's companies, Tesla, Inc. and SpaceX respectively. This electric car was previously used by Musk for commuting, and it became the only consumer car sent into space.
Together with the rocket's second stage to which the car is attached, it is now an artificial object in heliocentric orbit. The boosts of the second stage gave the combination sufficient velocity to escape Earth's gravity and enter an elliptical heliocentric orbit that crosses the orbit of Mars. The orbit reaches a maximum distance from the Sun at aphelion of 1.66 astronomical units (au). Image Credit: @apoapsys
