More images of Falcon Heavy's launch and booster landings

Elon Musk had earlier said in an interview that he loved the book, which he read as a teenager and that the spaceship from the book was his favourite. But after that date? The payload on Tuesday's flight, Musk's Tesla roadster, weighs about 2,700 pounds.

These images are real.

"Falcon Heavy: The world's most powerful rocket, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, roared into space through clear blue skies in its debut test flight on Tuesday from a Florida launch site where moon missions once began, in another milestone for billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's private rocket company".

The Falcon Heavy contains numerous same components found on its small brother, the Falcon 9, and Harrison thinks the Air Force's certification process won't be as intense for the Falcon Heavy.

SpaceX launched a recyclable rocket capable of being reused in the future. As such, the payload didn't have to be anything specific.

Within minutes following its launch, the Falcon Heavy's two side boosters separated from the central rocket in one of the most critical points of the flight.

The day after Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk blasted his Tesla Roadster into space, his electric auto company's mounting losses brought him back to Earth again.

The vehicle is supposed to be sent into a virtually indefinite solar orbit, on a path taking it as far from Earth as Mars.

Mr Musk tweeted overnight that the Roadster had exceeded the red planet's orbit and had continued towards the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, a more distant trajectory than anticipated, nearly reaching the orbit of dwarf planet Ceres. The "astronaut" in the vehicle is actually just a mannequin in a spacesuit dubbed "Starman".

The pioneering rocket firm just pulled off the unexpected, and carried out what appears to be a seamless first-ever launch of its massive new rocket, called Falcon Heavy. If Tesla doesn't meet those goals, Musk won't get paid.

In this particular case tech billionaire Elon Musk has founded the companies behind both the rocket and the vehicle. "Races are exciting", Musk said.

"I think it's going to encourage other companies and countries to say, 'Hey, if SpaceX, which is a commercial company, and it can do this, and nobody paid for Falcon Heavy, it was paid with internal funds, ' then they could do it, too".

"I don't know if this is a conspiracy or not, but in fact it's a very good trick", Roscosmos spokesman Igor Burenkov said about the launch in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station on Thursday. But for now, SpaceX is planning for all crewed deep space missions, moon included, to be launched on BFR.
