If the melting point of plastic is 212°F in space in sunlight is 270°F why isn’t the cockpit melting into space

Space is extremely cold even though the sun is hot. This is because there is almost nothing in space. However, there is some heat in space because of very small amounts of atoms found in space. Space is only about 3 degrees Kelvin because of the small amounts of atoms. Therefore, the car would not melt.

Yes, it’s standard, non-space hardened automobile plastic as per Elon Musk

Never thought of that. I'm sure they figured out an answer to it though.

No, they didn’t. It’s a mass delusion! A hoax filmed in a CGI studio

There's different formulations of plastics, with very different melting points.

Highest melting point for the most durable plastic is 255°C (491°F) the problem is Elon Musk states the csr was NOT space hardened prior to decoupling. The roadster uses standard automobile plastics which melt at 100°C
the cockpit should literally be melting away into space
