Elon Musk Sending Car Playing David Bowie Into Space

February 6, 2018
By: Nathan Vicar (WOMC) -- Elon Musk is set to launch a car pumping out David Bowie's "Space Oddity" into space Tuesday, Verge reports. Watch a trailer for the SpaceX project, soundtracked by "Life On Mars," below. Of course, there’s no sound in space anyway, so I don’t suppose it makes much difference. https://youtu.be/Tk338VXcb24 The project is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. Eastern, when an unmanned rocket called Falcon Heavy will shoot into the Earth's atmosphere. Once there, the plan is for it to release the Bowie-blasting Tesla Roadster on a path toward Mars, and finally, beyond. According to Musk, the car will be "in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent." https://www.instagram.com/p/BdA94kVgQhU/?utm_source=ig_embed
