Elon Musk, the genius behind the Tesla, has just shocked the world with yet another grand accomplishment.  His company SpaceX has been working on a rocket, dubbed the Falcon Heavy.  The Falcon Heavy was set to be launched out of Cape Canaveral.  In order to simulate the weight that future launches would carry, Musk stuck a cherry red Tesla Roadster in the rocket.

 

The launch of the rocket was successful, so there is currently a cherry red Tesla Roadster in space.  Musk’s putting an actual Tesla in the rocket to be carried during the launch has been compared to the reveal of Apple’s MacBook, with founder Steve Jobs taking it out of a manilla envelope to emphasize size and durability.

 

At first, people were confused by the idea of sending a car into space, but analysts have revealed that it may not have been such a spontaneous and unnecessary stunt.  Ever since the launch, Tesla has been talked about both in person and on social media platforms with frequency.  With regard to publicity, this stunt was a fantastic idea.

 

Tesla has been captivating the world since its creation of its first model, and Elon Musk continues to overachieve and to set the bar high for competition.
