In a tweet, SpaceX says its mannequin is headed to a "restaurant at the end of the universe."

Back in February, Starman' was launched aboard a Falcon Heavy Rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The mannequin is riding in the driver's seat of a Tesla Roadster, wearing a fully-functioning SpaceX space suit.

SpaceX says this trip will help test the suit and prepare for flights with human passengers.
