In a unique experience.. a Tesla car swims in the depths of space |

San Francisco (USA) – In February 2018, American billionaire Elon Musk sent his private Tesla Roadster aboard a massive SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket into orbit around the sun.

Usually the traditional justification for such extraordinary actions is that Musk simply can, but this adventure actually had a useful purpose, which was to measure the load capacity of the missile, not to mention that Musk already had an abundance of Tesla cars, hence the His old Tesla Roadster, the first car sold by his company, was a perfect candidate for this space adventure.

Now, four years after a Tesla reached orbit and the video stream focusing on Starman, the human-shaped statue behind the wheel of the car, has been interrupted, it comes to mind what that car is in four years In the void of space billions of miles from planet Earth.

In response to these questions, Anthony Wass, a professor of aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan, said that there are several things that interest him about this unprecedented experiment.

“There are four main risks in space, namely heat, the effect of gravity or its absence, radiation and the last problem of pressure,” Wass said, adding that solar storms are also among the factors that can affect the fate of the car.

He added that all these factors will have a different impact on the materials used to manufacture the car, and the issue also depends on the way the Tesla Roadster is manufactured.

Wass expressed in an interview with the website “Popular Science” that specializes in the field of technology, his concerns about the phenomenon of thermal cycling, and how the components of the car respond to thermal changes over time. He explained, “Huge space changes occur in space, where the temperature varies between minus 101 and 219 degrees Celsius, and these changes make the components of the car expand and contract more than what happens on the surface of the Earth, as cars are usually not exposed to thermal changes over 320 degrees Celsius.”

And he added, “The car’s hinges may disintegrate from each other, depending on how they are installed in the first place.” It is known that the components of the Tesla car are made of aluminum, and it is installed in a carbon-fiber body, but it is not clear how to install the car body in the chassis, although the installation is most likely done by connections and not adhesives, and therefore these links may disintegrate or break over the course of time in case of severe stress.

Wass says that atmospheric pressure or its absence affects the components of the car in more than one way, noting that the paint, for example, can be affected by pressure and temperature variations, as well as solar radiation in space. Although the Tesla car’s paint is based on highly advanced technologies, it has certainly not been tested under extremely high temperatures, and the continued rise and fall of heat over time may lead to cracking or peeling of the paint on the car’s body.

Although it is not clear whether the car’s battery is still in place after all this time has passed, Wass believes it may still be in place, and that its condition depends on the sun-exposed side of the car.

As for the rubber components in the car, such as the windshield wipers, for example, they have most likely become dry to the point of hardness and may have decomposed, and they swim in the space around the car similar to the paint.

Wass believes that any destruction of the car must have been caused by injuries to space meteors, because the car’s body in such a case may be full of holes, and this depends on the number of space meteors that struck the car and caused these holes.

Wass says, “No one thinks about what might happen to this car after ten or twenty years, but I think it will be of great value for testing, especially if all or parts of it can be recovered after its journey, as it is definitely a wealth of information to know The ability of the materials to withstand the ambient conditions in outer space.
