Elon Musk is sending his old Tesla to space. For real.

That was amazing. Standard stuff until the boosters came back. Wow. Humans are pretty fucking awesome.

"There are two types of countries in this world: those that use the metric system, and those that have landed men on the moon."

And do you remember the Cadillac commercial a few years back: we sent a car to the moon, and left the keys in it. Because we're going back.

They said it did, but the feed cut out.

I take it back. Folks on Starman's feed said the core splashed in the water, so it missed its landing zone. Or maybe tipped over?

Departure burn in two hours apparently for Starman. That'll get him on his way to Mars.

Starman's live feed. The comments are interesting, and hopefully full of trolls. If not, there's a lot of fucking morons pointing out there aren't any stars (so it's fake), the Earth glitching (so it's fake), the car not having a rear view mirror (so it's fake), the crash test dummy being a real astronaut, etc.

Well it WOULD be the perfect way to hide the body of the person you just murdered....

I wonder if Elon is looking at the video of his car, thinking about all the BJs he'd gotten in that front seat.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Update: Core missed the landing pad by 30 feet.

Apparently, its engines didn't fire.

Ha, you saw my comment in the feed?

No! When I wrote it, it was an original thought.... but I soon learned I was the last person to have that original thought.

Expand that thought process.... imagine he murdered a hooker and hid her body up there, and the helmet jarred loosed during launch, and the whole world was looking at a frozen dead hooker, in the car. Might be the most macabre thing ever.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Proof that creativity is dead. (or that the joke is too obvious...)

Feed is no longer live.

Never saw it. I posted mine around 8:00 in the live feed.

You guys are really missing the big news here...There's a Tesla convertible floating through space with a crash test dummy dressed as an astronaut in the driver's seat.

Is that cool or is it the most white trash thing ever done in space?

Also, what TV show/movie will "find it" in a story line first? I'm betting on The Orville.

It's coming right at us!

I saw lots of "Cool!" mixed with a little "Flint still doesn't have water, what kind of society is this?"

I want to post: "Glad you are in Flint working to solve the problem" (He isn't)

I didn't either. Good news doesn't sell. Had to google it. Lots of stories about how the water is fine there now, but they still don't recommend drinking it because most homes have lead plumbing.
