Watch the SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket launch today, February 6, 2018, in hope of seeing a successful test of the most powerful rocket currently operating in the world today.

When Falcon Heavy lifts off, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb) – a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel – Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.

Falcon Heavy’s first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Following liftoff, the two side boosters separate from the center core and return to landing sites for future reuse. The center core, traveling further and faster than the side boosters, also returns for reuse, but lands on a drone ship located in the Atlantic Ocean.

At max velocity the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.

  1. Most of SpaceX rockets failed. SpaceX is a part of the Orion Dark Forces. More info Youtube “SpaceX failure compilation” Recent SpaceX rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base was failed with UFO photo bomb!

  2. Why have they sent an electric car to orbit the planet Mars?
    These are the eccentricities, stupidities that some people who have money left over.
    Instead of fixing your country … go and spend the money on these … things.

  3. …. Before they try to reach and step on Mars, they are already sending … things to start fouling the planet Mars. They did the same with the moon … if they were. they left the moon, and they left everything on the surface … they have not collected anything.
