On Tuesday, tech pioneer Elon Musk successfully put an end to "1970: I bet we'll have flying cars in future, 2018:" meme by launching his very own Tesla into space.

On Tuesday, SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket in the world, into space.

Tucked into the nose of the mammoth SpaceX unmanned rocket that blasted off Tuesday was Elon Musk's own cherry red convertible Tesla roadster, a vehicle that was in fact manned -- by a spacesuited dummy nicknamed Starman.

The successful launch was followed by Musk sharing a message written inside of Tesla's circuit board that is currently cruising in space.

"Printed on the circuit board of a car in deep space," Musk wrote on his Instagram post.

A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on

Tesla will float in deep space on its lonely orbit around the sun, ping-ponging between Earth and Mars, for millions of years, thereby leaving a message for the future civilisations.

The SpaceX CEO later tweeted out a map of the Roadster’s final orbit after the burn, showing how far out the car will travel.

The glorious sight of Tesla taking a smooth ride in space resulted in Twitterati launching a hundred memes on the microblogging site.

The car is already up for sale.

While others asked important questions.

Hashtag legend.
