Live Views of Starman Replay – fantastic views of Starman in his roadster travelling round earth – what a sight!  The cruise is smooth and without traffic jams. 

StarMan was supposed to head towards Mars in a Heliocentric Orbit but…

Update February 8:  Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster is going farther out into the Solar System than originally planned.   The car was supposed to be put on a path around the Sun that would take the vehicle out to the distance of Mars’ orbit. But the rocket carrying the car seems to have overshot that trajectory and has put the Tesla in an orbit that extends beyond the Red Planet’s path. However, the Tesla won’t be making it to the asteroid belt. (www.theverge.com)

SPACEX launched the Falcon Heavy successfully. It’s payload was a red Tesla Roadster – with one occupant – STARMAN.  Join him in LIVE REPLAY as he orbits the Earth

Difficult to believe it is happening.  Starman my not be real but hey he is out there orbiting earth.  Rather him.  Not sure too many people could handle this trip in space.

The live stream switched between cameras, including one mounted on the hood. One is behind the astronaut’s shoulder and one facing back down to Earth. It’s quite a view, and it’s amazing.

We loved hearing David Bowie.  Perfect for the big launch.

Hope Starman is not going to leave us.
