      yes, but thats a long way - it sent back its last image one day after being launched into earth robti and one hour after being pusehd onto escape trajectory - it's not gonna get to the moon in an hour - it took it another day to intersect the moons orbit, although the moon was on the other side of that orbit at the time so it never got close - it will take another 3 months to intersect mars orbit and another 3 years to pass the asteroid belt

    Is the payload a complete car? or has it been stripped of its internals to reduce weight? If it were my project, I'd strip out the engine, batteries, etc, leaving just the shell. It would still look the same, but save a lot of weight.

    • Julian Danzer

    the visual of the standard flight (5:54 till about 6:40) is great in that you can see how they use that extreme speed to their advantage -at that speed using small side thrusters to turn backwards so as to quickly get back down, once the fuel is spent they use the side thrusters again to turn 'backside down' so that it's oriented in the same manner it took off hell of an awesome ballet to watch

    Exactly! Some people don't understand the value of sending up a $150K car instead of $20 worth of concrete! Would people care as much about the launch and especially about watching the live videos of Starman and his Tesla? It's called brilliant advertising! I've looked at the live "where's Starman and Tesla" a few times since launch. It worked because people keep watching the TRclips live video of it. I wouldn't care about a chunk of concrete. This was brilliant or as Elon Musk said... concrete would have been boring. It worked!

    the rocket was going over 25000km per hour at one point how would a car still have tires that are not popped. side mirrors in tacked. windshield not shattered from the pressure? i guess the car was made with the same metals and materials as the rocket? the launch

      Those panels are blown of with explosive bolts which ensure they move away from the rocket out of harms way, the flash may have been the bolts exploding. The panels just moved out of camera shot. After the camera had adjusted its self to the lighting conditions you just see what was there before the panels blew off and that is the Earth. the Car was supported from underneath so once the panels had gone there was 360 degree visibility.

      it's a testflight - spaceflight is evidently useful and every other rockettype in history was testflone with a dead chunk of concrete as payload and you didn't complain when using satellite made weather forecasts or navigation systems - in fact given that these chunks of concrete are mostly still in orbit and posing a threat to other spacecraft and the roadster is off and away this is actually the most responsible rockettest ever

    Here's the final heliocentric orbit of Elon's Roadster/Starman, using data from NASA/JPL Horizons, where its object ID is [-143205].
    Keplerian orbital elements
    Elon's Roadster
    Epoch: 6 April 2018
    a = 1.326427 AU
    e = 0.256580
    i = 1.052577°
    Ω = 317.118857°
    ω = 177.454188°
    T = 2458153.505755 JD
    I note with some satisfaction that my earlier guestimates about the longitude of the ascending node (Ω=317.9°) and the argument of the perihelion (ω=180°) were close to the truth.
    The orbit diagram that Elon Musk tweeted on 7 February 2018 was incorrect. He might have done a conservation of energy calculation wrong and arrived at an overly high value for the Tesla Roadster's hyperbolic excess speed, relative to Earth.
    Earth's gravity is still slowing the speed of Elon's Roadster, so don't take the present (early February) heliocentric state vector as predictive of the final heliocentric orbit. I picked a time two months from launch to read off the orbital elements.
    Elon's Roadster will have an aphelion distance of 1.6667 AU, a perihelion distance of 0.9861 AU, and an orbital period of 558 days.
    Ephemeris with observer at the Earth-moon barycenter.

      The experiment I referenced was a joint ISA (Italian Space Agency) and NASA venture completing in 1996
      On second thought, perhaps you should go to: and actually learn about the VABs instead of swallowing the garbage spewed by fellow Apollo hoaxers. Wake up sheep.

      +merlin13 The VABs would be a problem _if_ they decided that they needed to put human-inhabited satellites in orbit above LEO. So they experimented with it a bit to see if it would work. It did work, and the calculations are that it would take about 2 months to reduce the inner belt to 1% of its current strength, and if they left the tethers in place, it would remove new ionic radiation coming just as fast as the sun replenishes it.
      It's not a great idea, because this is part of what shields the planet from GCR (have you figured out what GCR is yet?). Since it's obviously possible to get around them, and since we don't have a particular need for human-inhabited space stations above MEO so far, there's no compelling need to do it _now_. But now they know it works. Basic science.
      But you wouldn't know what basic science is, would you?

      That is one stupid statement regardless of who made it, (reducing the strength of the radiation which happens to be constantly replenished by the sun), why bother it were not a problem? No i am not a flat earther (stupid theory anyway) and yes i do believe in satellites.

    • Fromage Frizzbizz
      Fromage Frizzbizz 11 aylar önce

      +merline13 The BS is strong in this one. You don't believe in satellites, and hence you shouldn't believe in the VABs because it's the only way they could be discovered (Explorer 1, Explorer 3, Explorer 4, Pioneer 3 and Luna 1 (Russian)). And you expect us to believe that _you_, a complete ignoramus know more about them than the guy who discovered, measured and mapped them? More than the guy who they're named after? Pull the other one.
      You don't even know the slightest bit about the VABs, and we are supposed to believe _you_ are the expert? Pull the other one.
      Actually Apollo has been past the VABs 14 times. 7 missions, both going and returning. Including Apollo 13.
      Of COURSE it makes sense to recheck their intensities periodically. Because the VABs move and change strength due to the sunspot cycle, coronal mass ejection events and others space weather effects. That's what creates and feeds the VABs and pushes 'em around. Oh, and yes, the recheck done by a satellite well above LEO.
      Change? Hell yes, over 40 years ago there was even a proposal from astrophysicists to reduce the strength of the inner belt. Experiments have even been done to test out the idea, and it works. But they haven't done it because it would be a bad idea.
      You yammered about the astronauts being in the LM during the VAB transits. They were not. You lied. We know you cut-and-pasted that BS from another flattie you follow around like a sheep without one whit of understanding. A flattie who didn't know any better. Nor, obviously, do you.
      If you're going to cry "hoax", you at least have to know _something_ about the subject. Making things up don't count.
      As for walking around on the moon for a while, with the space suits and LM for shelter. The LM's shells and suits contain layers of aluminum. That is a pretty good shield against alpha and beta particles, otherwise known as ionizing radiation.
      While the radiation is higher than on earth, a few days on the moon is about the same dosage than an airline pilot gets in a couple of years. In other words, inconsequential. But I'm sure you're going to bullshit you way out of that too. We should believe you? Or the scientists?
      Do you even know the difference between ionizing radiation and gammas or GCR? Rads, Rems or Sieverts? Do you even realize that the astronauts in LEO get more dosage in their long visits to the ISS than the Apollo astronauts got in their brief trips to the moon?
      When did you get your degree in RadioBiology? You don't have one? Thought not.

      it won't be under much operating load though - so yes, if it got recovered I wouldn't feel safe driving in it, but jsut floating aroudn it will bprobably hold together quite well

    He put the car there because why not. I applaud him. Even though he's going to end up being Weyland from alien but I'd do the same thing.

    Why in the actual fuck would anybody want to go to Mars? So fucking stupid. I'm super rich so I am gonna send a car into space! Then all the dumbfuck fanboy followers will think it's so cool and high five each other on the interwebs! He should take all this wasted money and do some good with it ffs. There are human beings that are in need you selfish pricks. Fuck Elon Musk and fuck anyone that still thinks shit like this okay. Grow the fuck up.

      its called atestflight - the alternative is sending a chunk of concrete into orbit and the fact that you complain about this but didn't complain every other time a rocket was testflown tells me that oyu have no idea what you're talking about - you probably just recnetly learned that rockets exist when seeing hte roadster in the news and din't botheto research the topic at hand for 5 seconds

    I wanted to see the final projected orbit of the car! I know the transfer takes it to the orbital height of mars at its apoapsis but where does its periapsis end up? Heliocentric means it could end up with a apoapsis the distance of mars and a periapsis pretty close to its transfer orbital height above earth. So does that mean it will periodically come close to mars at apoapsis and then close to earth at periapsis?

      except a few thousand people witnissed the alunc hwith their own eyes and amateur astronomers spotted the car in space with telescopes - so ifits cgi ten mus must hae built a gigantic teleision all aorund the entire earth

    If the roadster gets hit with any asteroid or comet on the way to Mars it will spread space junk all over the galaxy. I don't know why Elon is doing this. Just because? I thought the flamethrowers by the Boring Company was ill conceived but we have enough space junk out there already. I hoped SpaceX would've sent a satellite or maybe a Martian rover. Hey, those boosters landed together. (Not sure about that 3rd one, though). C'mon Musk you're amazing but be careful. It makes it around the Sun and next somebody has a fender crashing through their roof. It happened with Skylab.

      it was always intended to orbit the sun, it's orbit just extended out to the Mars orbit. They pushed too hard, and now will be orbiting the sun (still) with a max distance out near the asteroid belt.

      Well, I just heard that SpaceX had the wrong trajectory and the roadster isn't headed for Mars but instead orbiting the Sun. Maybe the car will melt or a spare tire might hit the ISS on its return orbit. I'll contact AAA.

      space junk in a mars transfer orbit isn't aproblem - thats too large, too far away, too spread out - and also an orbti which won't beused again since the next transfer windows to mars will all be different orbits

      +Robert Had a chance to see it yet? it caused a huge stir in the tech crowd and won a lot of technical achievement awards. Aki had her own fan club - she was supposed to be the "first virtual actress" to appear in many future movies. For a deep dive into the making of the movie, I suggest the Bluray or DVD editions - given 4 and 5 stars out of 5 by various reviewers.
      Unfortunately, it bombed at the box office and recouped about 60% of its production cost. Script was weak. Bankrupted the studio.

      It's ok as long as the aliens rear end it. The guy behind is always in the wrong here, let's hope they use the same rules lol.
      BTW. It's up there orbiting earth and slowly tumbling as it goes. The driver appears calm and relaxed. I think his nappy might be overflowing by the time they do the burn to send it across to Mars though lol.
