A Space Oddity: Is David Bowie the astronaut aboard the Tesla roadster launched into orbit by SpaceX?
The theory is, when David Bowie was dying, a deal a deal was made between him and Elon Musk to put his body in space. It was agreed that Bowie would be seated in a space suit in a Tesla roadster. The deal immortalizes both men, Bowie's body, Musk's car. To avoid publicity and resulting scrutiny that might interrupt the plan, Bowie's executors claimed: "David Bowie has been secretly cremated without a funeral or any family and friends present" https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/ce...emated-7174860 It is unknown whether this arrangement will be made pubic, but it's possible that it will be revealed upon Musk's death.
