    25 second video of the car and its view of earth, with audio, including a bit of Elon's joking reaction to the image

    I’d have to assume 2 out of 3 at this point.

    Upper stage restart tweeted a bit ago.

    I’m assuming they want to drop the live feed for cost reasons. This was a lot more viewed than other launches.

    Musk is my hero but does he even understand how cool he is???

    Imagine:
    Me: How is it going?
    Elon: Not bad - just charged my Tesla roadster built by the world changing car company using solar powered roof tiles before I launched it into space with my revolutionary space/rocket company. How is it going with you?
    Me: Not bad until I realized I have done nothing with my life.

    What a day.

    So you're saying every original Roadster has the "Made on Earth..." text hidden away in the PEM? :eek:

    Can't say for sure they all do, just know mine does.

    It is a good thing they printed that so the aliens know where to bring it back for service...

    Ranger service may be preemptively expensive.

    That was somewhat tongue in cheek. I don't know why they all wouldn't if mine does.

    My PEM is currently undergoing impulsive disassembly. Thanks Elon.

    Mine has that on several circuit boards. It was probably just a cute joke at the time. Little did they know...

    I always questioned the "humans" part. It might have been designed by humans but that board was definitely made by a robot. Just sayin'

    Did not see anything on the 2.5 boards when I had them apart - I will be doing a little pre-emptive surgery next weekend and will double check...

    Just look under the small cover. It is printed on the fuse board for the charge cables on the 2.0 and 2.5.
