Obviously really soon after the launch, but I struggle to find any information on where it's going, and where it'll be when etc. And then I thought of this application which I haven't used in years, but is awesome.

Sure. The orbital elements are already in the JPL Horizons system. I have just made an ssc. Reaches Mars orbit in july. Back close to Earth in 2026. Now we need a nice model...

Unpack teh zip file anywhere in your extras folder. Enjoy.

Thanks for the more accurate orbit. The model is almost ready and maybe I'll post it today.

Exactly 3 days ago the historical launch of the Falcon Heavy was made.
So, here's the 3D model and the .ssc file of the Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster:

I'm having problems in texturing the model, so I'm also uploading a .blend file, anyone can modify it. Enjoy. :wink:
