Elon Musk's Tesla and its 'Starman' driver just flew past Mars for the first time, 2 years after SpaceX launched the car into the void


.In February 2018, SpaceX launched a Tesla Roadster car owned by company founder Elon Musk into deep space.


.The electric vehicle, which has a spacesuit-clad "Starman" dummy in the driver's seat, just made its first flyby of Mars.


.To Starman, Mars would have appeared about one-tenth the size of the moon as seen from Earth, says astronomer Jonathan McDowell.


.The vehicle and its unlikely passenger, launched on the upper stage of a Falcon Heavy rocket, may travel for millions of years before crashing, most likely back into Earth.
