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.

Starman Headed for Earth or Venus Crash (In a Few Million Years)

A team of researchers wanted to know the Roadster’s ultimate fate, so they performed a series of computer simulations tracking the car’s path through the solar system over the next 3 million years. This modeling work gives the Roadster a 6 percent chance of crashing into Earth in the next 1 million years and a 2.5 percent chance of hitting Venusduring that same stretch. The car will probably slam into one of those two worlds at some point in the not-too-distant future (well, cosmologically speaking, anyway), the researchers said. Read more at Space.com
