Did Starman forget his towel? A towel is the essential thing every explorer needs to carry, right? Can't get very far without it.

    $\begingroup$ I'd be more interested to know if Starman knows where it is ;) $\endgroup$ Feb 8, 2018 at 6:56

    $\begingroup$ @ThunderGuppy I was tempted to downvote it back down to 42, on principle, but I'm being a good boy! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @NVZ Read the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, at least the first dozen pages. Long story short, it's pretty important to always have one with you. $\endgroup$

According to Elon Musk's Twitter it's in the glove compartment, alongside a copy of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and the Foundation series on the Arch disk.

    $\begingroup$ @Mat'sMug - you are SO wrong. Downvoting this specific answer back to 42 makes it just perfect. Upvote other answers to balance the karma. Have you read "Hitchhiker guide to Galaxy"? If not, you should. 42 is the universal answer to life and everything $\endgroup$ Feb 12, 2018 at 17:57
