Tesla laps the Sun

Starman has now been cruising round space for over a year, 557 days to be exact.

First Lap

He has completed his first lap on the sun, at 762 million miles, he may have lost his original Tesla warranty 36,000 times now though.

However, this doesn’t mean he is looking to come home just yet, he is still only likely to be 32 million miles away next year. So very unlikely we will be catching him. The next date for possible interception is scheduled for 2047.

Of course we are likely to be leaving the earth for deep space flights before then, so maybe they will see him in 2030 when the first deep space mission is scheduled or we can catch up with him on Mars when we move there.
