The SpaceX chief executive said when the company's Falcon Heavy rocket launches in January, the "payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster".

The first test, which will precede the attempt to fire a Tesla Roadster into Mars orbit, will be a "static fire" in which all of the engines are activated at once. "The vehicle will remain in deep space for a billion years if it does not explode during the launch", he added.

The billionaire owner has a history of tweeting out information that is so unexpected that people can't tell whether he's serious or joking, but this statement seems pretty legitimate.

He joins defensive end Harold Landry, a second-team member last season, as one of 13 Eagles to ever receive the distinction. The only freshman named to this year's Walter Camp All-America team, Taylor is in the midst of a historic rookie season.

"Just bear in mind that there is a good chance this monster rocket blows up, so I wouldn't put anything of irreplaceable sentimental value on it". SpaceX confirmed last night that this will actually happen, but there's thus far no set date for the launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The Falcon Heavy has been created to carry crew and supplies to deep space destinations such as the moon and the Red Planet.

It can propel 54,000kg (54 metric tons) - the weight of a loaded Boeing 737 jet - into orbit.

EPS for American Outdoor Brands Corporation (AOBC) Expected At $0.08
The stock of American Outdoor Brands Corporation (NASDAQ:AOBC) has "Outperform" rating given on Monday, September 25 by Wedbush. Finally, Quantbot Technologies LP purchased a new position in American Outdoor Brands in the second quarter valued at $156,000.

According to the company, The Falcon Heavy will be the world's most powerful rocket by a factor or two, and capable of lifting almost 120,000 pounds into Earth orbit.

SpaceX also said that the Falcon Heavy is also most likely the rocket that would take the two undisclosed passengers who have paid a deposit to fly around the Moon in late 2018.

Reusing the rocket and the spacecraft drastically reduces the cost of making trips to space, which is why NASA has been very enthusiastic about using the services of SpaceX for supply missions to the ISS.

It goes without saying that the song will be "Space Oddity"- and that this plan was announced, like so many of Musk's business decisions, in a cryptic message on Twitter over the weekend. In September 2016, an unmanned rocket carrying a satellite meant to be used by Facebook exploded during a routine test.
