Elon Musk, cosmic litterbug

Instead of a satellite that could benefit the world by the expansion of knowledge, Elon Musk sends one of his electric buggies into the asteroid belt.  I guess it's comforting in a way to think of that roadster being smashed between asteroids, and it may be better to have it out there instead of burning coal like the rest of his products, but one would have hoped that a guy as smart as Musk would contemplate the fact that what he's basically done is littering on a cosmic basis.

he's a cosmic redneck, leaving junk cars to rot in the yard.
