Happy Birthday Starman (one day late)

SpaceX launched Starman and his Tesla into space one year ago yesterday.

Currently, it is roughly 226 million miles from Earth, and going 5,000MPH. The vehicle has traveled far enough to drive all of the world’s roads 21.0 times.

As far as total distance traveled, the car has cruised for a whopping 473.3 million miles as of this writing. It’ll take approximately 557 days for the Roadster to make a full orbit around the Sun, and it’s projected to continue to travel through space for a long, long time to come.

As LiveScience notes, scientists believe the Roadster will eventually crash into either Earth or Venus. However, it could take many millions of years for that to happen, and the odds of it slamming into either planet in the next million years are significantly less than ten percent.

It’s worth noting that by the time the Roadster meets its end, it will likely look a whole lot different than it did when it initially took off. Telsa vehicles might look nice and shiny here on Earth, but the harsh conditions of space are likely to wreak havoc on the exterior as well as Starman himself.

...and going 5,000MPH

One of the fastest cars off Earth.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
