SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket – Most Powerful Operational Rocket in the World

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket – Most Powerful Operational Rocket in the World

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket is the most powerful, heavy-duty rocket that can lift over double payload. It is designed for potential human spaceflight; perhaps back to the or even Mars in the future.

The rocket uses three Falcon 9 boosters combined for maximum load capacity when leaving Earth’s atmosphere, and it’s looking to do its first test launch within the next few weeks from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The rocket made its way to the Cape Canaveral launch facility late in 2017, but now it’s actually vertical on the launchpad, undergoing its long preflight test check list before the actual attempt is made. SpaceX celebrated getting its rocket upright with an impressive drone’s eye view video of the massive , along with brand new captured of the Falcon Heavy aiming skyward on the pad.

Falcon Heavy also has a cargo pod up top with the ‘FH’ logo clearly visible, and we know what it contains – Elon Musk’s own original cherry red Tesla Roadster, which is set to launch on the rocket’s first trial run – destined for an eventual Mars orbit, if all goes to plan.

Since this is the first ever launch SpaceX has attempted using its Falcon Heavy, however, there’s a significant chance that not everything will go to plan. Musk himself has hinted that there could be a considerably sized fireball in store for anyone watching the show, since no matter how many simulations you run, real-world launches always prove different from what a computer tells you will happen.
