I don't care about the car, I am interested in how the SpaceX Falcon got the car into a solar orbit, and how it fared on it's return to earth.

763,000,000 miles with no oil change? Wow...

Technically the fastest car ever. Are the wheels spinning? Serious question. I would appreciate an answer please...

The car was outfitted with heat resistant panels and shielding. 

...not really. It's just a standard Telsa, strapped to a rocket and launched in to space. Like Elon himself said in the press video, "you can tell it's real because it looks so fake".

That drill guy in the YouTube video said the military hasn’t needed grease for years. So maybe it’s the same for oil? :sk

Effects of solar wind?

In early 2018, Rafi Letzter at Live Science predicted it would be torn "to bits" by radiation in a year.

Do we know if it's still intact?

They are just testing the duco, (it had a wax before launch).

It would be so cool if the inboard camera still works.
