STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING: SPACEX’S MARS BOUND TESLA ROADSTER LIVE FEED

Stop what you're doing right now and watch this. SpaceX's live feed of a simulated astronaut, Mars-bound in a Tesla Roadster.

The live stream switches between cameras mounted on the hood, behind the astronaut’s shoulder and one facing back down to Earth. Elon dares to think differently, outside the square and the rewards follow.

Launched on today's maiden flight of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, the upper stage carrying the Tesla Roadster will spend about six hours in orbit and then will do another engine burn, putting the car on its flight to Mars.

Watch the live feed below (the feed does drop in and out, just hang in there).
