Elon Musk accidentally tweeted his phone number

  • Tesla Roadster

Musk stated in a tweet, "Payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity".

A few weeks ago, Elon Musk announced his plans to launch a Tesla Roadster into space on the maiden flight of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket.

Now, as we get closer to the big day, a picture showing Musk's Roadster mounted on the Falcon Heavy's payload attach fitting in a position that would allow it to fit inside the rocket's body, so if there are still people who thought this was a joke, it's either a very expensive one, or - most likely - it's not a joke at all.

Bitcoin tumbles almost 30 per cent in volatile trading
However, as Bitcoin is a volatile currency, ups and downs in the price are not something unusual. We've reached out to Coinbase for clarification and will update this story when we hear back.

But on Friday, Musk posted a photo to Instagram of the Tesla inside a rocket nosecone. "Destination is Mars orbit". "Of course, anything boring is awful, especially companies, so we chose to send something unusual, something that made us feel".

The Falcon Heavy combines three SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets, such that it rides atop 27 Merlin engines firing in unison.

But, noticeably, the reusable rocket system is missing the clamshell top, or fairing, in the images.

Evan Longoria trade marks end of remarkable era for Rays
The team has been shopping pitchers Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Alex Colome to varying degrees this offseason. The Giants finished last in the NL West this past season while the Rays finished third in the AL East.

For example, Musk previously said he planned to launch the "s$3 illiest thing we can imagine" on Falcon Heavy's first test-flight. Never one to leave well enough alone, though, he also declared that he was going to load his Tesla Roadster into the rocket as a payload.

"Red auto for a red planet", Musk replied to a Twitter user in early December. After all, why would he want to send an electric auto into orbit around Mars? This highly elliptical path goes out to the orbit of Mars, then back to Earth orbit on a near-endless loop (hence the "billion years or so" detail from Musk).

Doubling down on his mission to never be boring, he also said that the vehicle would be blasting the famous 1972 song Space Oddity by David Bowie.

National Hockey League rumors: Islanders to find out Belmont arena fate Wednesday
The decision has come down to the New York Islanders and NYCFC of MLS, the final two bidders for the 43 acres. Coming back to Long Island would give fans what they want even if that means dealing with some traffic.

An earlier tweet by Musk also promised other "cool software updates" were also in the works and "coming soon".
