STARMAN WILL GO WHERE NO STARMAN WENT BEFORE

The Tesla Roadster orbits Earth before blasting off further into space.

Elon Musk announced last night on Twitter that the cherry red payload and its Starman passenger "exceeded Mars orbit."

And now it will take months for the Roadster to travel some 600,000 miles into space...

SPACEX has mathematical sequences that show the Roadster will swing past Mars and approach the orbit of the largest object in the asteroid belt, Ceres, which at 567 miles in diameter..

So .. to the asteroid belt it goes! Perhaps to be blown into pieces of history..

On the other hand, there's a good chance the sports car will be floating through our solar system for millions, if not billions, of years. So there's ample time for a collision — perhaps even with Mars
