Space car orbits the sun

The sports car sent into space in 2018 has orbited the Sun.

The car, sent by rocket company SpaceX, completed the amazing feat this week.

In February 2018, the world’s most powerful rocket took off with a sports car attached to the top.

The car was an electric Roadster made by Tesla. Driving the car was a mannequin dressed in a spacesuit. He was nicknamed Starman!

Experts planned that it would take the car 557 Earth days to make the solar lap and it’s now been in space for over 560.

Unfortunately, we cant see Starman. He is now on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth, and is moving at around 24,000 miles an hour.
