Cape Town - Earlier in February, Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent one of his electric vehicles into space.

The South African-born entrepreneur blasted one of his Tesla electric cars into space aboard his own rocket.

It was the latest feat for the 46-year-old Silicon Valley billionaire who has been hailed as a leading innovator and visionary.

According to Musk, who has 400 000 customers awaiting production of its Model 3, says: "If we can blast a roadster in to space, we can solve Model 3 production problems."

But since there is a cherry red roadster orbiting the Earth, there are probably concerns that it will is most likely to come crashing down.

According to Geek.com, researcher Hanno Rein says: "The probability of that happening even in the next million years, is very small."
