Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster spotted floating in space

The Chicago Infrastructure Trust and city officials will evaluate the teams' responses, determine which of them are qualified to proceed, and then issue a request for proposals to the qualified bidders.

In what may prove to be a metaphor for Tesla, just Tuesday (Feb. 6) the company's first electric sports car, the Roadster, rode into orbit, perched above the world's most powerful rocket, the Falcon Heavy.

Falcon Heavy essentially comprises three previously tested rockets strapped together to create one giant spacecraft. "As we ramp production of both Model 3 and our energy products while keeping tight control of operating expenses, our quarterly operating income should turn sustainably positive at some point in 2018". "At the time of our observations, the car was at about 470,000 km from us", they wrote.

Launching a rocket with 27 engines, therefore, represents a notable step forward in rocket complexity.

In other words, Tesla's ambitions for the Model 3 remain intact, but please bear in mind that such ambitions have proved, on prior occasions, somewhat overambitious.

The blood is flowing freely.

The payment model for residential solar deployments has been changing as well.

While initial concerns over the launch and actually getting the car into orbit have been stemmed, the Roadster now faces the reality of a whole universe of dangers wanting to tear it apart.

Shortly after the launch, SpaceX posted a live feed of Starman's journey. (On test launches, however, aerospace companies traditionally fly concrete blocks, since the rockets might explode.) Others bemoaned the choice during a time of increasing economic disparity between the rich and the poor.

Tesla is now riding a production "s-curve". The rocket is reusable, which means cutting down the resources required for the metal body of the rocket.

Markets are bracing themselves for more volatility.

Each of the three cores has 9 engines.

"The "2,000 to 2,500" units per week cited in this comment refers solely to the capacity of the additional automated battery module manufacturing equipment that is currently located in Germany, and not to Tesla's total Model 3 production run rate or to the capacity of the automated battery module equipment that is already present at Gigafactory 1".

Bravo to SpaceX, its visionary founder, Elon Musk, and the thousands of employees who made this week's test launch an awesome success. It'll continue to complete one full orbit about every 19 months.

The book that is based on a popular radio show narrating the adventures of an accidental space traveller named Arthur Dent had the phrase "Don't Panic" on its cover.

But a second was also hidden on a tiny disk designed to store data for billions of years. This is probably going to mean a collision is inevitable. Is it doable? Musk at least is confident.

"I have no idea when Elon decided on the car & the opportunity offered to the govt could have been for smaller payloads, low cost v. free etc.", Garver later tweeted.

So next stop Moon or even Mars?

A car, in space.
