SpaceX, Elon Musk’s private project of space exploration, successfully launched the “world’s most powerful rocket” into space on Tuesday.

The unmanned rocket, named the Falcon Heavy, took off in front of a huge crowd at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Inside, the rocket carried one of Musk’s personal Tesla cars.

According to BBC, the rocket will send Musk’s car toward Mars’ orbit, playing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” on a loop.

Musk has made clear that his project’s ultimate goal is human travel to Mars.
