It was only visible for a few seconds, but a number a of alien hunters watching the SpaceX launch this week spotted something unexpected dart across their view high above the Earth.
McDowell explained that the error apparently arose when someone at SpaceX used an orbital parameter called C3 - a measure of the velocity needed to escape Earth's gravity - to determine the shape of the Roadster's orbit "and goofed while doing it".
So now that everyone is heaving a collective sigh of relief about Falcon Heavy not exploding during takeoff (though the fear was very real), what is the fate of Elon Musk's space-bound midnight-cherry Tesla roadster with Starman at the wheel and a copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the glove compartment?
The Foundation trilogy, written by Isaac Asimov in the early 1950s, tells the convoluted but often mesmerizing tale of a human space empire attempting to preserve itself by building a huge library containing all human knowledge. Each of the cores had nine Merlin rocket engines, making for a total of 27 engines.

Plastics and the carbon-fibre tub will also be turned into space junk. We have come to accept this "tax" on the agency, but It is time for the nation to decide if we want a space program - or a jobs program. The closest the car will get to Mars is in October 2020; it'll pass by Earth again in 2026, 2031, and 2039.
It was heralded as a "game changer" by Musk himself and watched the world over. The company recently made headlines after a partnership with the South Australian government to equip 50,000 homes with solar power and battery packs to create what it calls a "virtual power plant" powered solely by renewable energy. After SpaceX released data on Starman's orbit on Wednesday (Feb. 7), experts on social media started crunching the numbers and noted that the data didn't match the trajectory that Musk had tweeted the day before. Elon Musk, who founded SpaceX, the private enterprise responsible for launching the Falcon Heavy, said he hoped the launch would start a new "space race". Instead, the archive approach to Big Data is intended to store data indefinitely.
Nevertheless, Musk is confident that he can make the company into a success.

Late last year, UPS placed an order for 125 Tesla Semis, while PepsiCo reserved 100 and Anheuser Busch reserved 40 . The next space race needs to start with launching dreamers on a path to permanent residency and beyond.
However, this achievement will require Tesla's Model 3 production ramp to go as planned.
According to Masi, the Roadster was easy to spot, with an apparent magnitude of 15.5 - comparable to the maximum apparent brightness of Pluto's moon Charon.
Piloted by a brave mannequin and pumping out David Bowie's "Space Oddity", the motor was the first production car to be sent into space. Then you have to think about the crushing effects of dangerously low pressure and glacial temperatures, as astrophysicist (and SYFY WIRE contributor) Summer Ash observed in an interview with Gizmodo.
