"'Falcon Heavy" to launch next month from "Apollo 11' pad at the Cape [Cape Canaveral, Florida]". CEO Elon Musksaid that he will send personal Tesla Roadster as the payload.
The Falcon Heavy is a powerful rocket, which is the follow-up to the Falcon 9. Also, in obvious Musk style, there is more. Company executives previously spoke of how hard it is to build such a large rocket-powered by three Falcon 9 cores, meaning it has thrice the thrust of original Falcon 9.
The first Falcon Heavy's "payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity", Musk wrote on Twitter, referencing the famous David Bowie song. The Falcon-Tesla-Bowie combo will head for a Mars orbit, where it could remain for a billion years, according to Musk ... with one small caveat: "If it doesn't blow up on ascent".
Musk has stated that there's a non-zero chance of the Falcon Heavy exploding on its first flight.

It's an impressive piece of engineering, able to lift into orbit three times more than the current successful Falcon 9 can (63.8 metric tonnes, compared with 22.8 metric tonnes). Falcon Heavy missions will send large payloads to orbit inside a composite fairing, which will protect satellites during delivery to destinations including low Earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit, and geosynchronous orbit. As if bringing humans to the Red Planet were not hard enough, he has now announced he wants to send his Tesla sports vehicle too. The spacecraft from these initial missions will also serve as the beginnings of SpaceX's first Mars base where they will build a thriving city and gradually a self-sustaining civilization on the planet.
