The red Tesla roadster car was launched into space by SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket last week is currently on loop into the orbit around the sun. But a lot of people start questioning that can this car collide with earth in the near future?

According to a new study the Tesla Roadster car may give a close shave to Earth but chances are fairly very acute and the time lap is not very near in the future. Researchers say that hopefully young earthlings will be alive when it happens. Next to Earth, the Roadster may have close encounters with Venus.

The car sent into space may collide with Earth or Venus in the next million years, says Hanno Rein, a researcher at the University of Toronto. His team followed this epic journey of the car and came to a conclusion that the car will continue to loop around the sun. Currently, in an orbit that intersect the paths of Earth and Venus and the Roadster may collide with both of the planets in the million of years.
