Tesla's upcoming navigation overhaul could pave the way for Autopilot

The CEO announced his intention just after the start of this month via a weird message that, for some reason, included the car's color (midnight cherry) as well as the fact it would be playing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" as it left the Earth.

And it looks like Elon Musk is absolutely determined to send his Tesla Roadster 1.0 electric sports auto into space next year as the main payload of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket. He wanted to do something more interesting, so the Falcon Heavy set to launch early next year, which is now at Cape Canaveral to undergo its final pre-launch tests, is being loaded up with a Tesla Roadster (original flavor, not the just-revealed updated edition). The photos were posted just hours after a picture leaked on Reddit that showed a grainy view of the vehicle being readied for its final ride.

He said earlier this month that he wants to send the auto into "Mars orbit". "Of course, anything boring is bad, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel".

AT&T plans to give employees $1000 bonus after GOP tax bill passage
How's AT&T going to pay for it? The bank also said it would distribute a one-time bonus of $1,000 to about 75% of its employees. On a call with analysts, FedEx CEO Fred Smith praised the tax legislation as a "pro-growth" plan that will "power the economy".


"Major navigation overhaul coming in early 2018".

Photos shared on Instagram show the Tesla Roadster being prepped for the Falcon Heavy rocket.

The Tesla won't be going to the planet Mars itself, as Musk told Phil Plait, an astronomer and writer. "Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent". It was later clarified that it'll aim for an orbit around the sun that will, at times, put the vehicle and Mars at equal distances from the sun. In other words, don't be surprised if it ends up in an updated version of Musk's blooper video.
