Tesla Launches New Roadster… into Space! (Videos)

Although Elon Musk has mentioned they have a dozen commercial customers for the Falcon Heavy. Tesla has never made a full-year profit since it went public in 2010.

While discussing an inquiry from Bank of America's John Murphy, who asked about the company's production plans for the Model 3 and a possible manufacturing limit on the Tesla Factory, CTO JB Straubel stated that issues do emerge in the transportation of materials from one facility to the next.

Excluding special items, the company lost $3.04 per share compared with the $3.12 loss expected by analysts, Reuters said.

The adjusted loss eliminates one-time expenses, including stock-based compensation.

Elon has had a long relationship with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, having first read the 'trilogy in five parts' when he was a teenager living in South Africa.

Tesla's total revenue for 2017 was $11.8b, which was also in line with analysts' forecasts.

On Tuesday, Musk's other major company SpaceX launched a Tesla Roadster into space aboard a Falcon Heavy rocket. The largest object in the asteroid belt is a dwarf planet called Ceres.

The 23-story jumbo rocket, carrying a cherry red Tesla Roadster automobile into space as a mock payload, thundered off its launch pad in billowing clouds of steam, smoke and ash at 3:45 p.m. EST at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

The billionaire businessman sent the electric car into orbit because normal tests are too "boring". So, to the degree that we can better understand the universe, then we can better know what questions to ask. "Much of this impact will be felt in the first two quarters of the year". Since a peak of $360.50 in January, Tesla has fallen 17.5% to $297 Friday afternoon. "It's just a matter of timing". The company now expects to build 2,500 Model 3s per week by the end of March.

UBS analyst Colin Langan maintained a sell rating on Tesla and price target of 190. That idea, which became reality this past Tuesday, was to send the car into space using the new Falcon Heavy rocket produced by SpaceX, another Musk company. It is still unclear about what is going to happen to the car. This is the current generation's Sputnik moment.

Either that or an asteroid belt will do the job. However, it could come to an end in an instant if a larger asteroid were to make a direct hit.

You can watch coverage of the launch and surrounding enthusiasm on the SpaceX site. The reloading potential allows SpaceX to keep the cost down. Currently, Americans are buying SUVs and trucks in record numbers. But he estimated that the spacefaring Roadster "has less chance of a collision each year than all the Roadsters plying the highways of Earth put together". All that costs money, which Tesla is burning through at a fast clip. Meanwhile, the Winter Olympics are underway in South Korea and Kylie Jenner gave birth to a baby girl.

This is proof that autonomy in our technology is real.
