Want to send your photo to space? Tesla’s new referral programme rewards owners by sending an image of their choice “etched in glass” to deep space, the media reported.

According to a Daily Mail report, Tesla customers who encourage their friends and family to purchase Model S, Model X, Model 3 and solar products using their referral code are set to receive rewards.

The rewards involves Tesla laser-etching any photo of the owner’s choice that would be sent into deep space.

The photos will be sent as part of the “Launch Your Photo into Deep Space Orbit” reward on SpaceX rockets.

Owners wanting to send their photos to space will need to upload the desired snap onto the Tesla mobile app before December, the report said.

“Tesla owners can refer someone to buy their car and get any image they want laser etched in glass and sent to deep space for millions of years,” Elon Musk tweeted late on Friday.

Tesla owners who have four qualifying referrals would get priority access to vehicle software updates and those with more than one car will have priority access to software updates.

If owners have two referrals they get a matte black Wall Connector with an etch of Musk’s signature.

Users with three referrals can have a Model S or Model X for one week, or if they don’t want to use the reward, they can give it to a friend, the Daily Mail reported.

Aiming to protect Russian software firms from being “abused” by foreign technology companies, the Russian Parliament is now mulling to bring a bill that will force all Electronic Devices sold in the country, including smartphones, computers and smart TVs, to ship with apps from Russian tech firms pre installed in them.

If the bill is approved, the Russian government will publish a list of electronic devices that will need to comply with this new law. However, devices that don’t run a complex operating system OS or custom software will be exempted.

According to lawmakers, “the bill will protect the interests of Russian Internet companies and will reduce the abuse by large foreign companies, working in the field of information technology”, ZDNet reported recently.
