Tesla in space is spectacular. But that adds another debris. Even more cool would be to orbit Tesla's roadster around Mars, until a manned mars crew gives it a little boost towards sun where it would burn up.

 

I'm no great fan of Tesla but Musk and his genius must be recognised for his achievements, alone. He is the right man for the right time. God show him the way.

I've always been a fan of orbiting heat shields that protect the vehicle on re-entry (its like a glove around the craft) Once the craft enters the heat shield (docking in space) ie. the heat shield is a spacecraft, specifically designed to re-enter earth's atmosphere and cocoon a much lighter vehicle, less well equipped and re-usable with this new tech. Musk thinks outside the envelope. The heat shield just goes and lands where its told to. Welcome to the real Space Age.

At least the deteriorating Tesla is not a LEO piece of space debris, just an elliptical heliocentric one.
