The Roadster SpaceX sent to space has completed its first orbit around the Sun

SpaceX demoed its potential some time ago sending a Tesla Roadster with an occupant called Starman on the first Falcon Heavy launch. SpaceX put up a website Where is Roadster, where data of the travel can be seen and according to it, Starman has completed his first orbit around the Sun, taking 557 days. It has traveled over 762 million miles since then, exceeding the Roadstar’s original 36,000-mile warranty over 21,000 times.
The earth has moved from its position since the first Falcon Heavy launch and is currently on the opposite side of the Sun, else it ould have been possible to spot from the ground with optical equipment of course. The EV won’t get vaguely close to Earth again until November 5th, 2020, when it’ll be about 0.346AU (just under 32.2 million miles) away. It’ll get much closer to Mars before then at ‘just’ 0.05AU (about 4.6 million miles) on October 7th of that year. After that, it could get quite lonely for Starman — estimates suggest he might not get particularly close to home until 2047.
SpaceX is preparing itself for a deep space flight, and the US hopes to send people to Mars in 2030 or later so before 2047 we might be able to go out and meet Starman.
