I think people smart enough to drive in space would be smart enough to leave the windows rolled up and the doors closed. Geez Jim.....

Dude! The Tesla is a roadster. The top is down and the driver is enjoying the (solar) wind.  :)



Besides, he has a space suit on and from what I hear, he doesn't breathe all that much.

 it is was very dim (about magnitude 19.8)


I suppose it wouldn't have been as interesting for the near Earth photos, but I wonder what it's magnitude would be now if they had painted it all white.

I also wonder if any extra bracing or other reinforcement was required to handle the g- forces so that we wouldn't see pieces of windshield trim, gas cap flipped open, or side mirror dangling, etc. hanging off of the car. I have to believe that the dummies left arm is fairly well fastened down to the top of the door despite it's casual just resting there appearance.

I guess what we are seeing is actually all of  this:

...and not just a car by itself.

What would a charging port be called in Haroldo speak? Electron hole? Spark hole? 'Lectric hole?   :)
