So, There's An Actual Car FLYING Around Earth Right Now!
Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket has launched into space carrying some unusual cargo: a Tesla Roadster car.
Musk was quoted several weeks ago saying he wanted to include his electric car on the flight.
Musk has tweeted out a live feed showing the car, and its driver – a dummy named Starman (after the David Bowie song) orbiting Earth.

In the middle of the car, on a screen, are the words “Don’t Panic.” which is a referance to science fiction book “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,”
Musk said earlier the car will be in deep space for billions of years "if it doesn't blow up on ascent."
So if someone tells you they see a flying car today, it might just be true!
