Musk says that the car will capture epic images, and if everything goes well, he will provide very important information throughout the journey.
Elon Musk and SpaceX tested the heavy-duty objects of the Falcon Heavy rocket loaded with giant concrete and steel blocks in a classical manner. But according to the plan, Falcon Heavy will carry the Tesla Roadster from Musk’s midnight cherry when NASA is about to depart from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It looks a bit silly, but it seems to use a functional ‘Starman’ in a SpaceX space suit, a much nicer load than concrete and steel blocks.
If everything goes as planned, the vehicle and the driver will eventually be left in a Mars orbit around the sun. The vehicle and the driver, who will stay here for a few hundred million, maybe even a billion years, will continue to fly in space with David Bowie’s song ‘Space Oddity’. Since there will be three cameras in the vehicle, it will also have the possibility to send unique images to the World that will be obtained during the journey.
“There will be a few sensors on the top of the rocket, so we can collect a lot of data, but I think three cameras mounted on the Roadster will give us much more fun.” If everything goes well, epic images they will provide. ”
But of course, the car needs to make a long trip first to get these images. Musk believes that the flight will be successful and that SpaceX will have a lot to do with its capacity, but at the same time, it says there are many untested sections about the flight.
In an animated SpaceX, Falcon Heavy gave details of what would happen after he got into the launch. The rocket, which will use three nine-motor accelerators, will go so far out of the Earth’s gravitational field. Falcon 9, now mastered in the mail, is using only one of these accelerators (which can be re-used Cinsten).
In the first stage, the two accelerator engines that are located next to each other will be released and will be directed towards the landing area in Florida. Thus, these engines can be renewed and reused. The centering accelerator motor will carry the load-carrying part of the rocket a little further and will give the cargo propulsion a push, and then the drop in the Atlantic will return to the car.
The top of the Falcon Heavy will continue to travel through the extreme radiation of the Van Allen belt for about 6 hours. It is expected that the rocket that will be re-fired after this phase is passed will send data to Earth. And, of course, the cameras in the vehicle will also send ‘epic’ images of the musk.
Approximately 322 million kilometers of vehicle travel is expected to last an average of 6 months. It is then expected to provide unique images during the journey of the vehicle that will enter Mars’s orbit.
