Also, he and Musk helped found the Commercial Spaceflight Foundation, to promote and pursue safe, commercial space travel. Launching a auto into space sounds like something Musk would do, but this is the first confirmation that it's actually happening.

Launching and landing a rocket would've seemed like a fanciful idea just a few years ago, but companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin have shown how it's done as they work to develop their separate reusable rocket systems.

With enough fuel and the right trajectory, it's got enough thrust to launch a payload heavier than a vehicle to Pluto, let alone Mars. "Of course, anything boring is bad, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel".

If successful, the mission would make Tesla the first carmaker to send one of its models into space where it would stay "for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent".

"Major navigation overhaul coming in early 2018".

Earlier this year, Musk posted a teaser showing how the Falcon Heavy launch might look when it takes place in a matter of weeks. And in 2010, he launched a wheel of cheese into orbit during the maiden voyage of Dragon, a spaceship built by SpaceX.

The Tesla won't be going to the planet Mars itself, as Musk told Phil Plait, an astronomer and writer.

Doubling down on his mission to never be boring, he also said that the auto would be blasting the famous 1972 song Space Oddity by David Bowie.

Both Musk and Carmack have experience in building rockets.
