Great looking calculations Malcolm! Minor correction would be that 2 pi should be 6.28 rather than 6.88. I donít think it will be a mission critical change  :D

Please bear in mind that a fore-runner test rocket for the Apollo missions had to be destroyed in flight because it was veering off course.

The reason?

Some one put a colon instead of a semi-colon in the programming!

Honestly I tried to resist typing this - but I can't help myself...
If some one put a semi-colon, the programming must have been half arsed!   :sorrysign:

Yes, indeed so, I should think not, all the above.
I mean, if a little more fuel had been available, who knows where beyond the asteroids it may be headed , uranus maybe,

oh it's getting worser

The two hillbillies sitting out on the porch, one of them looking through a telescope. The other one asks,

"Can you see Uranus?"

"No, but I can see Mars"

Just in case anybody wants to know the current location of the Roadster, and all sorts of interesting data about speeds, distances and... er.... fuel consumption , here's a link to website that fulfills the need:

http://www.whereisroadster.com/

The site includes an animated chart and 'view from the Roadsters rear view mirror' (Starman must be doing a space walk) and links to buy 'goodies' like car stickers and a 1/64 model of the Roadster. Wow! ::)

Just to be clear, my 'Wow! ::) refers just the retail stuff, especially the car, which gets poor reviews.
The rest is a good bit of fun and very clever.
