Does the New Tesla Roadster Really Have 7000+ LB-FT of Torque?

Elon Musk Mentions The Falcon Heavy Launch In January

That tally will include several missions for commercial satellite operators, military customers and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration using the Falcon 9 rocket - which powered all of this year's launches - but also a planned expansion to include a larger rocket and crewed missions.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has been successfully launched from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base north of Los Angeles last week on Friday, Dec. 22. He mentioned the recently released Tesla electric semitruck and called it a precocious teen.

Sending an actual auto to space isn't boring like sending other things such as mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks as payload. The new photos, shared on Musk's Instagram account, show the auto between two halves of the payload fairing the caps the new rocket and should remove any doubts regarding Musk's intentions.

Earlier this month, Musk revealed that the Falcon Heavy Rocket will be launching from Cape Canaveral, Florida. "That seemed extremely boring", Musk wrote in his Instagram post.




Tesla shocked the collective automotive community when it debuted its new Roadster supercar just a few weeks ago. It will be the strongest most powerful rocket ever created with its three boosters. "Of course, anything boring is bad, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel", he wrote.

For example, Musk previously said he planned to launch the "s$3 illiest thing we can imagine" on Falcon Heavy's first test-flight.

"SpaceX is now dominant in terms of launch volume", said Marco Caceres, a senior space analyst with Teal Group Corp., an aerospace and defense market researcher. Falcon Heavy is also up to the task: It can ferry a payload of 37,000 pounds - roughly 14 Tesla Roadsters' worth of mass - to Mars.

Musk called it "a red auto for the Red Planet" and explained the decision to load it onto the rocket with the desire to diversify the test process.
