So why is a Tesla cruising in Space? SpaceX wanted to show that their Falcon Heavy Rocket can bring large and heavy objects into Space -- so why not use a cool car for this mission? The Tesla is on a mission to mars with a “Don’t Panic” dashboard message, a dummy astronaut (Spaceman) in the seat, and David Bowie on the radio, playing his famous song Space Oddity.
The Falcon Heavy ist the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9 (Credit for the text above: SpaceX Homepage).
