What Ever Happened To That Car In Space?
Remember the car that was shot into space? Well that "car" was Elon Musk’s own Tesla Roadster. The "car", with Starman at the wheel, has been flying through space for over a year now.
Figuring out exactly where the Roadster and its Starman passenger are at any given point is incredibly easy thanks to the handy website whereisroadster.com, which tracks the progress of the vehicle every moment of every day.
Going by the site’s statistics, the Roadster is currently around 226 million miles from Earth and 163 million miles from Mars, and it got to its current position by traveling at a speed of approximately 5,149 miles per hour. That’s an incredibly speedy vehicle, and it won’t be slowing down any time soon.
LiveScience notes, scientists believe the Roadster will eventually crash into either Earth or Venus, but it's not going to happen anytime soon.
