Elon Musk’s space Roadster just flew past Mars

On November 8, Starman will be at its maximum distance from the sun, after which its orbit will marginally shrink over hundreds of years.

According to Pearson, the car will reach its farthest point from Earth this coming February but will return for a close approach in November of 2020, at which time it will be just 51 million km away from us.

As of today, nearly nine months since the launch, Starman has exceeded its 57 900 km warranty over 10 thousand times by traveling a distance equivalent to 16.4 times the combined length of every road on Earth. At 55,678km/h, this is definitely the fastest roadster the Earth – and the solar system – has ever seen.
