SPACEX  GETTY    
   GALACTIC MESSAGE A special note has been left in the Tesla Roadster for aliens

SpaceX may have sent the first car into orbit around the sun when it launched CEO Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster on the Falcon Heavy earlier this week, but that was not technically the first car in space. The potential advantages of this large-scale rocket are incredible, but private space firms must also be aware that the potential negative impacts (both in space and on Earth) are just as large.

Paz will be released at an altitude of 514 kilometres above the earth's surface before it settles into orbit, and six months of testing will be carried out to ensure it is working correctly.

Space enthusiasts can search for "SpaceX Roadster" in the Horizons system created by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to track its movement.

Blue Origin, the space company founded by Amazon's chief executive Jeff Bezos, has been testing its New Shepard suborbital rocket and space capsule at various stages of development. But assuming those collisions don't tear the car apart, the radiation will.

Still, let's assume the deposits are money in the bank.

Using remote cameras, photographer Walter Scriptunas II took these images of the 229-foot-tall (70-meter) rocket firing off pad 39A at 3:45 p.m. EST (2045 GMT) Tuesday.

"You might also catch a glimpse of a smaller passenger, which is a tiny little Hot Wheels roadster, carrying a tiny little Starman", Lauren Lyons, a SpaceX engineer, said during the mission's webcast.

The Monday Morning Opener is our opening salvo for the week in tech. The Reserve Bank collects data on a variety of economic indicators, such as employment levels and inflation rate (sense), analyses the data to determine an interest rate (think), and then sets the interest rate (act).

It's unlikely that the vehicle could avoid the kind of collisions with micrometeoroids that leave space junk riddled with craters over time, Carroll said. Second, Tesla counts customer deposits as operating cash flow, even though these are refundable and, in essence, zero-interest short-term loans.

For the fourth quarter of 2017, Tesla reported a net loss of US$675 million, up from US$121 million a year ago.

"Perhaps I'm wrong, in which case I'll look like a fool", he said. The rise of Apple and Microsoft in the 1970s provided proof that technological startups could make it big. This matters, because if China doesn't intend to claim the Moon as their territory, they are setting a poor example in trying to seize the international waters and sovereign territories in the South China Sea, in violation of 400 years of freedom of the seas and the Law of the Sea Convention. It was after all the launch of the heaviest rocket in recent years.

If the stock hits $288.40 - 2.9% below where shares were trading Friday afternoon - Tesla will be considered to be in a bear market. It was not just a normal rocket launch. "Knowledge acquired from space exploration has also introduced new perspectives on our individual and collective place in the Universe".

The economy on Florida's Space Coast was hammered by the shuttle's retirement, but it has come back behind the commercial space industry. Leave the rest up to them. It could get smashed by an asteroid or even totaled on Mars. It is twice as powerful as the Delta IV Heavy, from the United Launch Alliance.

His madcap ideas to save humanity from itself have even earned him the honour of a parody Twitter account, "Bored Elon Musk".
