It's a neat stunt but what exactly is the point? PR? I thought weight was always such an issue with these launches.If he really doesn't know what to do with all of his money, I can help him out.
It was a test launch. SpaceX built a rocket twice as powerful as a Delta IV Heavy, the most powerful rocket currently in use. It can put 170,000 pounds into low Earth orbit, so sending a 2,000 pound car to the asteroid belt is no problem. This is the first time a single person got to pick a test payload to leave Earth orbit. Musk picked his Roadster.It's a neat stunt but what exactly is the point? PR?

Galaxy collisions have always fascinated me. It might seem weird, but right now, the Milky Way is tearing apart dwarf galaxies that are orbiting around it.Pretty cool I assume unless you live on a planet in one of those 2 galaxies.
