Few days ago, Elon Musk, the computer engineer who created Paypal and current CEO of SpaceX, successfully sent his Tesla Roadster to outer space.
“I had this image of a giant explosion on the pad, with a wheel bouncing down the road and the Tesla logo landing somewhere with a thud,” Musk told reporters at Kennedy Space Center. “But fortunately, that’s not what happened.”

The car was sent carrying a mannequin called Starman wearing a spacesuit like a real astronaut, roaming the space till the edge of our galaxy with a note sent for aliens imprinted on the circuit board saying “Made on Earth by humans”.
Starman and the Tesla Roadster will be on a journey far away from Earth’s orbit, as they will be away 390 Million kilometers from the sun and towards Mars.
Featuring Joe Satriani’s music, SpaceX created a live stream that lasted over 4 HOURS before the rocket’s last burst launch into the deep space..
Being the CEO of SpaceX, Tesla, and Neuralink, Elon Musk has definitely achieved a lot. He’s one of the first-movers in the AI trend, one of the main reasons behind creating the new ECO friendly electric cars, and his company Neuralink works developing implantable brain–computer interfaces.
What do YOU think about Elon Musk? Is he trying to transcend with humanity or trying to take over the world?
