elon musk is bourgeoisie using money built on the backs of the proletariat and should be charged for putting a lovely car into space which has the possibility to explode into a bunch of loving pieces which exacerbates kessler syndrome

one of my favourite shows is Planetes and elon musk putting a car into space makes me mad, legit. there're whole episodes about bougie fuckers leaving garbage in space and elon musk sent a whole loving car into space. it's littering except one accident can gently caress us all forever

well in his defense it's heading out into the asteroid belt and beyond so realistically nobody will ever have to deal with it

granted, it was supposed to go to mars, but what's a few million miles here or there

Sagebrush posted:

they were testing the rocket configuration for the first time and had to put some kind of payload on it. no one is going to risk their satellite on an untested platform so usually on the first launch they just put a bunch of water barrels or chunks of steel girders or whatever to simulate a payload mass. in that sense, bolting a car to the upper stage instead as a publicity stunt is fine.

also, they didn't "miss" their target. the rocket is indeed going out to the asteroid belt rather than mars, but that's because they wanted to burn the upper stage out completely in order to observe the engine's behavior as it ran out of fuel (something that can only be tested in space on a total loss mission, since the rockets will always carry a small fuel reserve). so they ended up boosting it past its initial trajectory. that was expected.

also there are hundreds of thousands of pieces of space debris floating around in our orbit and more than 20,000 of them are actively tracked by the department of defense. even if the car had stayed in orbit, it's just one more piece, and it would pose no more danger than any other dead satellite or discarded payload fairing.

i am not a muskovite but let's base our arguments on an accurate foundation :spergin:

prestige objects should not be allowed into space

even when it was originally aimed at mars, it was intentionally done outside of the transfer window so that it'd be in the same orbit mars is in around the sun, but like 90 behind or something. it wouldn't be orbiting mars to make sure that it didn't have to go through the decontamination process which wouldve taken time and money and effort, all things that ol' musky hates.
