Space X’s CEO Elon Musk’s Roadster – cherry-red Tesla spacecraft has just been sighted floating past the Red Planet, Mars. It was sent into orbit about eight months ago on a Falcon Heavy rocket in February this year.
A Dummy astronaut “Starman“ named after the David Brownie song is in this rocket’s driver seat. The tweet by Space X on 12 November claimed that Tesla had gone beyond the orbit of Mars.

Earlier, shortly after its launch its onboard camera was cut out. But the path of the Roadster could still be followed through its website. NASA has claimed that though it’s not a restaurant but as per its current orbital path the Roadster will orbit the sun once every 557 days. The question in everyone’s mind is what was next in store.
