SpaceX: Roadster-Driving Mannequin Has Passed Mars

REMEMBER STARMAN AND THE TESLA ROADSTER LAUNCHED INTO SPACE? THEY'RE NOW BEYOND MARS, SPACEX SAYS

(CNN) – SpaceX updated the status of the mannequin astronaut it launched into space earlier this year.

The aerospace company says its ‘starman’ already passed Mars.

In a tweet, SpaceX says its mannequin is headed to a “restaurant at the end of the universe.”

Back in February, ‘Starman’ was launched aboard a Falcon Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The mannequin is riding in the driver’s seat of a Tesla roadster wearing a fully-functioning SpaceX space suit.

SpaceX says this trip will help test the suit and prepare for flights with human passengers.
