What you see in this video isn’t bad Photoshop. It is in fact a car barrelling along over the earth, looking down at us earthlings.
As over a million people watched the launch of aerospace company SpaceX’s Heavy Falcon rocket – original destination Mars – founder Elon Musk added a cherry coloured Tesla Roadster to the payload.

Sitting in the driver’s seat is the dummy astronaut “Starman”, with a “Don’t Panic” sign on the dashboard, while playing David Bowie’s popular song “Space Oddity” on the car speakers.
Here is a detailed video of the launch.
