Early December, Elon Musk announced that SpaceX was going to launch a Falcon Heavy rocket to orbit around Mars. Not the most subtle of promotions, for sure. In a second tweet, he said the payload for the test flight would be his own personal first-generation Tesla Roadster.
Musk notes that rocket payloads for first test flights are generally just things that provide weight to simulate real cargo, like blocks of concrete or steel.
If successful, the mission would make Tesla the first carmaker to send one of its models into space where it would stay "for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent". Even still, this is some unforgettable imagery, which will likely burn itself into our collective minds as we think of Tesla, Musk or Space X. Which is probably the point.
But on Friday, Musk posted a photo to Instagram of the Tesla inside a rocket nosecone.
He said earlier this month that he wants to send the vehicle into "Mars orbit". The Falcon Heavy is a reusable heavy-lift rocket created to get large payloads into space.

The rocket is SpaceX's brand-new Falcon Heavy launcher, which is scheduled to fly in January 2018.
Musk demanded to be taken seriously prior to releasing the crucial photo of that missing part, though. Falcon Heavy is also up to the task: It can ferry a payload of 37,000 pounds - roughly 14 Tesla Roadsters' worth of mass - to Mars.
The Falcon Heavy's two side-mounted boosters and central core are created to be reusable, flying back to Earth to land on land- and sea-based platforms.
It's unlikely the Tesla will be empty, just playing David Bowie's song "Space Oddity" on repeat.
Musk also hinted that more software updates might be on the way.
