"Awesome! At this speed, two hands on the steering wheel please (hash) Starman".
Mr Peake tweeted his congratulations the team on "a phenomenal technical achievement", adding that it marked "the dawn of a new era of space exploration".
In the quarter, Tesla delivered 29,967 vehicles including 1,542 Model 3 vehicles.
Hooking up with a private partner such as SpaceX or Blue Origin, the space company founded by Amazon's Jeff Bezos, could be on the cards. The Palo Alto, California-based company didn't say when it will hit its ultimate target of 10,000 Model 3s a week, enough to hit Musk's goal of 500,000 a year.
Spivack insisted that he's not trying to become the author or curator of this distributed monument to modern society.
Turns out billionaire Musk loves his pop culture references - for this is another one.
And then, of course, Danny and Sandy drove off into the sky at the end of "Grease" to who knows where. He recently announced production was getting back on track telling analysts, "If we can send a Roadster to the asteroid belt we can probably solve Model 3 production".
"When I saw it, I was ready to laugh", he said.
But with the Falcon Heavy launch and the Tesla Roadster's journey to space, the two companies are effectively already conjoined.
McDowell calculated that the Roadster will venture by Mars at a safe distance of about 70 million miles (110 million kilometers) as it crosses the planet's orbit in July.
In the fourth quarter of last year, Tesla deployed 143 MWh of energy storage products, growing 45% over Q4 2016.
Along with Boeing, SpaceX is under contract from NASA to deliver astronauts to the space station. And as long as the quartz isn't shattered or blasted with intense waves of radiation, those points should be legible to anyone with the technology to view them - even millions (or perhaps billions) of years in the future.
The car also features a Don't Panic sign - a reference to Douglas Adams's famous novel The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.
In comparison to other "heavy" rockets, the Falcon Heavy rocket is the most powerful of its kind.
His expectations for Model Y, which hasn't yet been unveiled, are enormous. We shouldn't begrudge an element of theatre when the boundaries of rocket science are being pushed.
"Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost", the company claims on its website. The hotels were full, the press room overflowing, and the traffic near the Kennedy Space Center was bumper-to-bumper.
