Not the most subtle of promotions, for sure.

Elon Musk said in a tweet on Thursday that the electric auto maker will soon launch some "cool" software updates.

"Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks".

If successful, the mission would make Tesla the first carmaker to send one of its models into space where it would stay "for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent". Even still, this is some unforgettable imagery, which will likely burn itself into our collective minds as we think of Tesla, Musk or Space X. Which is probably the point.

On Thursday, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk pledged the navigation proposition would be "light-years ahead" of its current system. "Destination is Mars orbit".

SpaceX now only operates the Falcon 9 rocket, which consists of a core first stage booster and a second stage.

But, noticeably, the reusable rocket system is missing the clamshell top, or fairing, in the images.

Earlier this year, Musk posted a teaser showing how the Falcon Heavy launch might look when it takes place in a matter of weeks. And in 2010, he launched a wheel of cheese into orbit during the maiden voyage of Dragon, a spaceship built by SpaceX. Never one to leave well enough alone, though, he also declared that he was going to load his Tesla Roadster into the rocket as a payload.

Elon Musk's secretive Ad Astra School formed in 2015.

It's unlikely the Tesla will be empty, just playing David Bowie's song "Space Oddity" on repeat.

An earlier tweet by Musk also promised other "cool software updates" were also in the works and "coming soon".
