On February 6, 2018, at 2045 UTC, the first Falcon Heavy was launched into space. It contained a very special payload- a Tesla Roadster with Starman.
But where is this vehicle ??
The current location is 123,084,648 miles (198,085,601 km, 1.324 AU) from Earth, moving away from Earth at a speed of 42,275 mi/h (68,035 km/h, 18.90 km/s).
The car is 99,987,967 miles (160,915,084 km, 1.076 AU) from Mars, moving away from the planet at a speed of 22,845 mi/h (36,765 km/h, 10.21 km/s).
The car is 149,543,538 miles (240,667,070 km, 1.609 AU) from the Sun, moving away from the star at a speed of 6,709 mi/h (10,797 km/h, 3.00 km/s).
The car has exceeded its 36,000 mile warranty 8,499.0 times while driving around the Sun, (305,965,133 miles, 492,403,303 km, 3.29 AU) moving at a speed of 46,596 mi/h (74,989 km/h, 20.83 km/s). The orbital period is about 557 days.
It has achieved a fuel economy of 2,428.3 miles per gallon (1,032.4 km/liter, 0.09686 liters/100 km), assuming 126,000 gallons of fuel.
Assuming the battery still works, Starman has listened to Space Oddity 57,664 times since launch in one ear, and to Is there Life On Mars? 77,700 times in the other ear.
A telescope about 29,072 ft (8,861 m) in diameter would be required to resolve the Upper stage from Earth.
The vehicle has traveled far enough to drive all of the world’s roads 13.5 times.
It has been 7 months, 2 hours, 40 minutes and 52 seconds since launch.
