Turns out Elon Musk wasn't kidding.
The Falcon Heavy is the largest rocket launched into space since the NASA Saturn V in the early 1970s.
It is common for rockets to carry a dummy payload during test flights. Musk and company decided to load the rocket with an original Tesla Roadster with a SpaceX suit-wearing dummy in the driver's seat.
SpaceX successfully landed all three boosters that propelled the rocket, but the rocket's second stage, with the Roadster on top, was launched into an orbit around the sun.
The above photo is a picture of the car, with dummy driver, soon after it entered orbit.
The photo above is a frontal view.
Above is a view of the Roadster's dashboard, with a message displayed on the screen.
Shortly after the launch, Musk tweeted out a live camera shot of the dummy, called "Starman" after the David Bowie song that could be heard playing toward the end of the launch.
Musk is CEO and Lead Designer at SpaceX, and is also chairman, Product Architect and CEO of Tesla.
Musk unveiled a second generation Tesla Roadster in November that boasted eye-popping specifications.
