The vehicle "will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent", Musk wrote.

But here's the fun part: Musk's "midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity", will be the rocket's payload, according to a separate tweet by the tech billionaire.

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, its most powerful reusable rocket to date, will have its first and long-delayed launch with Musk's cherry-red Tesla Roadster in January.

In what can only be described as "the weird news of the day", Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla has announced that the next SpaceX mission rocket will carry a very unique payload - his own first generation Tesla Roadster.

While a Falcon 9 has nine Merlin engines, a Falcon Heavy has 27.

Mayfield, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound senior, led Oklahoma to a No. 2 ranking and a berth in the College Football Playoff. The Sooner quarterback finished with the second most passing yards in the country, piling up 4,340 through the air.

Falcon Heavy is the followup to SpaceX's Falcon 9.

When Falcon Heavy lifts off in 2017, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two.

"Just like the first flight of a new jumbo jet doesn't go with a full complement of passengers, it makes sense to do a launch where you can learn a lot, but the payload isn't mission-critical", University of Colorado space policy expert Phil Larson, who has worked at both SpaceX and the Office of Science and Technology Policy, told BuzzFeed News. It is scheduled to launch from the Apollo 11 pad at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, in a month. Falcon Heavy is capable of carrying 17 metric tons of cargo to Mars' orbit, Quartz reported, or 63 metric tons to low-Earth orbit.

SpaceX also plans to be able to recover all three rocket cores that power the "Falcon Heavy", just like it has done over the past year with main rocket booster stage of its "Falcon 9" rockets, according to The Verge.

SpaceX, founded in 2002, hopes to send its first cargo mission to Mars in 2022.
