SpaceX Starman Roadster completes its first orbit around the Sun

Starman and his Tesla Roadster are now regular denizens of space. According to data from Where is Roadster, the cosmic driver has completed his first orbit around the Sun, taking 557 days since the first Falcon Heavy launch to circle our home star. Its path has taken it over 762 million miles since then, or enough to exceed its original 36,000-mile warranty over 21,000 times.

Elon Musk’s Space Car Has Racked Up Way More Miles Than Any Car in History

Starman and his Tesla Roadster will complete their first full orbit later in 2019. In any case, even without having completed a full lap of the sun, the Roadster has definitely exceeded the distance record for any car in history. There are currently about 65 million kilometers of roadway in the world, and that number grows every year. Even still, Irv Gordon’s Volvo P1800 only logged a little under 5 million kilometers before he passed, and that’s the highest mileage car we’ve ever heard of.

Tesla Roadster “Starman” Toy Launched By Hot Wheels

Let us know if you see where to buy one!

[Story]

Hot Wheels launched an updated version of their ’08 Tesla Roadster miniature toy. This newest version is based off Elon Musk’s personal Roadster that was launched into space earlier this year by SpaceX. Adhered to the Roadster’s dashboard was the original 1:64 Hot Wheels Tesla Roadster. Good cross promotion on the part of Tesla, SpaceX and Hot Wheels!

The newest version is available with updated packaging and paint color to match Elon’s Roadster. Sadly, there is no 1:64 “Starman” in the drivers seat. Nor is the model strapped to a 1:64 scale model of the falcon heavy. Most distressing, there is not a 1:4096 miniature of the 1:64 miniature Roadster on the dash.
