How long will it take for the Starman to get to Mars? I'm following the incredible launch of the Heavy Falcon and Starman, and would like to know. Thanks!
Don't know how specific you want, but at 7:59 AM - 6 Feb 2018 Elon tweeted
About 2.5 hours to T-0 for Falcon Heavy. Watch sim for highlight reel of what we hope happens. Car actually takes 6 months to cover 200M+ miles to Mars
Edit: A clarifying note that we just learned as well. Again according to Elon on 7 Feb. 2018:
Third burn successful. Exceeded Mars orbit and kept going to the Asteroid Belt. Image of expected orbit
It won't ever really get to Mars, but it will be pretty close in 2020, and even closer in 2035. I did a video linked below that shows this.
