Yesterday, SpaceX has published on its official YouTube channel a new video which is dramatically reviewing the history of the Falcon Heavy launch, the most powerful rocket that has ever been launched from Earth, at the moment. Falcon Heavy has launched the Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster and the Starman to their journey in the outer space.
When the first Falcon Heavy launch has happened, the rocket was the most powerful one that has ever been launched. In fact, Falcon Heavy is 2 times more powerful than the previous most powerful rocket.
Falcon Heavy is capable of lifting more than 141,000 lb which means more than a regular Boeing jetliner when it is full of passengers, hundreds of pieces of luggage, and has its tanks overfilled.
Musk’s Tesla Roadster and his driver, the Starman, are flying with 7 miles per hours in space
Falcon Heavy is able to send object on the Earth orbit at prices by 66% lower than its #1 competitor, the Delta IV Heavy. Nonetheless, Falcon Heavy can lift cargo by 2 times heavier than Delta IV.
After the Heavy Falcon has been launched, its side propellers successfully landed by themselves after splitting from the core rocket. On the other hand, the main booster, which was set to land on a barge in the middle of the ocean, closely missed its landing site and plunged into the water.
One of the main events regarding the first Falcon Heavy launch was the Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster “drove” through space’s infinity by the renown Starman.
The Musk’s Tesla will fly in space at a maximum speed of 7 miles per second and will get at 250 miles away from the Earth.
The recent SpaceX video has been made by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, co-producers for the HBO original Westworld series, and has been shown at the SXSW 2018 event.
