Thank you. So, when it is supposed to transition from the orbital speed and get the boost to Mars (if at all)?

And it is not live, btw.

The dashboard panel has already gone bad on the most nurtured Tesla in the world? Sorry >universe?

That's what being a 20x billionaire will do. He can pretty much "show off" any way he wants. Kind of interesting to see someone with some flare.

THAT... WAS... AWESOME.
My favorite part was "Don't Panic" on the roadster's flat panel display.

I've come to like Elon Musk. I think they sealed it with the release of the Spacex blooper reel. The dancing rocket at 1:20 cracks me up and the use of John Phillips Sousa's "Liberty Bell March" was spot on.

Amazing achievement, and a reminder that failures are just the price of success.

At 2:45 there are all sorts of particles flying by. What the heck are they?

Is it some kind of advertising gimmick too for a write off? After all he stuffed a Tesla in it.

Since the roadster is in space, I suppose it's a spacecraft...technically...

Burn already happened...and it looks like there was more deltaV than planned, so it's more like Asteroid belt for Aphelion now...
