Elon Musk about to launch his car into space...

Shortly after selling flamethrowers (I thought he was joking when I first heard about it but no) - presumably just for s***s and giggles, total lad Musk is going to launch his own Tesla Roadster into orbit around Mars while the radio plays Bowie's 'Starman'. It could be up there for a billion yrs. It's partly because it's a test flight and the new rocket might well blow up on launch, so no 'serious' payload has been added, but it's still hardcore geezerdom, if you ask me.

He'll be following up his current large Falcon Heavy rocket with a bigger rocket called the BFR. You can guess what BFR stands for. Top geezer.

Veered off course apparently. Never mind and "Don't Panic!".

The Flat Earth morons are already claiming CGI fake, complaining that they forgot to put the stars in the footage - clearly demonstrating their ignorance of both established science as well as basic photography

Oh c'mon.
Owned by one eccentric billionaire who just drove it round the block, a very big block I grant you.
As long as it's 'new owner collects' shouldn't be a problem.

So why does the wheels not pop as it is in a cold vacuum?

Did he fill them with concrete?

Same reason people wouldn't explode if they took off their helmet in space? Because it's not the movies? :)

Must admit, I thought inflated tyres would explode: weather balloons explode once they get to full height due to low pressure.
