REPLAY Falcon Heavy Test Flight Launch – REPLAY – blast-off successful for SpaceX rocket

Falcon Heavy Test

REPLAY Falcon Heavy Test Flight Launch. Maiden flight of the massive Space X’s rocket.  Successful blast-off.  Fantastic achievement.  The question now – is there life on Mars?  Who knows.  But there may be in the future.

There were some delays but the rocket was raring to go!  Lots of talk going on.  Views are fantastic.  Huge crowd gathered to watch this incredible launch. Video of previous tests but this one most important.  Its load has captured a lot of attention.  If it works the future in space will change.  We could have villages on Mars.  Maybe take a holiday there!

A rocket the size of a 20-story building, blasts-off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center FlorIDA. On board  27 engines and a cherry-red Tesla Roadster as its payload.  It will be the maiden flight of Space X’s Falcon Heavy.  The most powerful rocket to launch in 45 years, since NASA’s Saturn V, which last flew in 1973.

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 draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9. Its 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. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.
