Watch this incredibly exciting launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch vehicle  carrying Elon Musk's personal Tesla Roadster car into orbit which will cross the orbit of Mars and eventually travel on a heliocentric orbit around the Sun! Watch the deployment of the car and watch the solid rocket boosters returning to Earth which land upright on landing pads close to the launch site! The Tesla car has a dummy pilot called 'Starman'!
