Watch live as 'Starman' drives Elon Musk's Tesla in space

SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy rocket from Florida Tuesday, and you can follow a live shot of its quirky payload: Elon Musk's red Roadster and its driver.

The revolution is being televised, live from space. The above live video feed is coming direct from Elon Musk's 2008 Tesla Roadster, which is currently somewhere high, high above us.

On Tuesday afternoon, Musk's rocket company SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, the new most powerful rocket currently in use worldwide, from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The payload for the demonstration launch consists primarily of the Roadster, and a suited dummy named "Starman," which is featured prominently in the feed.

After spending a few hours cruising the Van Allen radiation belts around Earth, the upper stage of Falcon Heavy is set to fire one last time before it detaches from the Roadster, sending it -- and Starman -- headed toward Mars.

Musk has said some of the cameras are mounted on the car itself, but it's not clear if the feed will continue after it separates from the rocket. So enjoy the Starman show while you can.
