In a world first, SpaceX has launched a red convertible sports car into space. On Tuesday, SpaceX, a company owned by Elon Musk of Tesla, launched the world’s most powerful rocket into space releasing a red Roadster carrying a mannequin in a space suit dubbed “Starman”, which will orbit around the sun and at times, get close to Mars.
