SpaceX sets historic first Falcon Heavy launch for February 6

- SpaceX is targeting February 6 for the test flight of the Falcon Heavy rocket that will rumble across the Space Coast as the most powerful launch vehicle of today, Elon Musk announced on social media Saturday.

The Falcon Heavy is based on the Falcon 9 but triples the number of first-stage engines, providing more lift. American Eastern Standard Time for about 10 seconds, spewing violent exhaust and steam, a video on SpaceX's official twitter showed. "Generated quite a thunderhead of steam", Musk wrote.

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy sits on a launchpad. Musk hopes the Falcon Heavy will also deliver the first humans to the Red Planet.

World's most powerful rocket Falcon Heavy.

Following the successful test yesterday Musk suggested the rocket could be "launching in a week or so".

The company unveiled the Falcon Heavy rocket in December.




As with all static fires of flight-proven boosters, the static fire was anticipated to last 7 seconds from the time of engine ignition to engine shutdown. "Easy viewing from the public causeway". He heads up the Tesla electric vehicle company, as well as SpaceX and several other companies.

The Falcon 9 is now used to hoist satellites and supplies to the International Space Station.

If all goes as planned, Musk's Roadster will wind up in a long, elliptical orbit around the sun, stretching as far out as the orbit of Mars.

The Falcon Heavy can carry one of the largest payloads in the history of space travel.

The SpaceX CEO has said the auto will remain in "deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent". Musk has repeatedly warned the rocket could explode. More impressive that the output of the platform however, is that Musk claims each Falcon Heavy launch will cost less than a third of the price of a Delta IV launch, which is now the most powerful operational platform in use today.
