The unusual SpaceX payload, which blew away on February 6, 2018, is now decaying through space outside of Mars’s orbit. The Tesla Roadster and its pilot were chosen as a dummy payload for the maiden’s launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket. Elon Musk, the mastermind behind the extravagant rocket launch, then argued that a deadweight payload of metal blocks would have been simply too dull. Now, one year after the launch, a study of Starman’s path around the sun put the cherry sports car on a potential collision road with the earth.
According to orbital dynamics experts Hanno Rein, Daniel Tamayo and David Vokrouhlicky there is a significant possibility that SpaceX’s Starman crashes into the earth or in Venus.
In a joint research paper, published under the title Random walk of cars and their collision probabilities with planets, researchers predicted Starman’s journey over the coming millions of years
The space experts who found Earth, Venus and Sun are the three most likely crash targets for Starman .
Collisions with mercury and Mars are the least likely scenario that Jupiter’s gravity catapults the car out of the solar system.

But also With the scary view in mind, the odds for Starman crash into the planet anytime soon quite narrow.
The researchers certainly gave Starman a six percent chance of beating the earth in the coming million years.
They also predicted a 2.5 percent chance that the sports car crashes into Venus in the same timeframe.
Professor Rein said: “Even though we cannot tell on which planet the car finally ends up in, we are comfortable and say that it will not survive in space for more than a few tens of millions of years. “

In the study, the researchers said that Tesla sports car will make a close approach on Earth within the first 100 years after
When it happens the SpaceX spacecraft will come as close as the moon.
The study reads: “By using an ensemble with several hundred realizations, we were able to statistically determine the probability that Tesla collided with the solar system planet on astronomical schedules.
“Although some of the groundbreaking experience effects due to medium-motor and secular resonance cross NEA space, the orbital evolution initially remains initially close to the earthly planets, especially Earth, Venus and Mars.

“About half of our 15 Myr integrations lead to collision with the Earth, Venus and the Sun.”
Under a period of 15 million years (Myr) there is a 22 percent chance that Starman hits the earth and 12 percent chance that it hits Venus.
However, there is also a distinct possibility that Starman will not be around long enough to see the earth up and shut down ever again.
Due to the violent and dangerous nature of space, Mr Musk’s sports car is likely to break under intense space radiation.

William Carroll, a chemist at the University of Indiana, explained: “All organic substances will be degraded by various types of radiation you will run into it.”
According to NASA’s space agency, space is beyond the protection of the Earth’s atmosphere filled with charged particles and cosmic rays flowing in all directions.
Because of this problem, people’s cells risk breaking down and causing all kinds of health complications.
NASA said, “Space radiation is different from the types of radiation we experience here on Earth.” “Space radiation consists of atoms where electrons have been removed as the atom was accelerated in interstellar space to velocities approaching the speed of light – eventually only the nucleus of the atom.
Space radiation consists of three kinds of radiation: particles trapped in the earth’s magnetic field; particles shot into space under sunspots; and galactic cosmic rays, which are highly efficient protons and heavy ions from our solar system.
“All these types of space radiation represent ionizing radiation.”
