It is done. Elon Musk sent a car towards Mars.

I just watched the live launch and recovery of Falcon Heavy, completing its mission to send a car in a heliocentric orbit towards Mars.

This is the car he sent up.

And there's the mad man himself.

I'm sure the internet will be flooded with gifs and youtubes of the event that was live streamed, I'm sorry I didn't think to post a link to the stream on the forum beforehand.

I suspect Ol' Musky is really an evil genius who gave up trying to take over earth so is now using his powers for good so he can take over Mars.

Also how do we know that is a dummy in the car now floating in space and not Ol'Musky's arch nemesis? Seems like a convenient way to hid a body.

The car has three cameras mounted on it and is playing "Major Tom" on a loop.  When I retire I think I may apply for a job with this guy.  It doesn't sound boring.  My daughter picked up something from the internet the other day.  "Elon Musk is just an iron suit away from being Tony Stark."

If any one sees or finds a large white and black rocket name Falcon Heavy center section please contact Ol'Musky.  

Instead of "dude where's my car?" its "dude where's my rocket?"

Reminds me of the opening scene in the animated movie "Heavy Metal" where the 56 Corvette drops out of the Space Shuttle.

Given that we havent heard anything, I wouldnt expect the center core to look like a rocket anymore...

Did anyone notice the "don't panic," which references another dead author?

Can't think of the author's name.
