SpaceX Just Launched The World’s Most Powerful Operational Rocket
Tesla CEO and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk now owns the world's most powerful rocket currently in use.
Launched on the 6th of February around 3:45 pm ET from Kennedy Space Center in Florida (the same pad where NASA launched lads to the moon), SpaceX sent ‘Falcon Heavy’ straight to Mars.
The successful debut launch of the rocket now makes Tesla CEO and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk the owner of the most powerful rocket in use today.
‘Falcon Heavy’ boasts three boosters and 27 engines - the equivalent to three Falcon 9’s but with better thrust - we’re talking the thrust equal to 18 Boeing 747 Jetliners. Costing a mere $90 million, Falcon Heavy pales in comparison to the Delta IV Heavy built by United Launch Alliance, which costs approximately $400 million per launch.
The privately held company not only accomplished sending the mammoth into space but also sent the first automobile speeding into the galaxy - Elon’s Roadster, made by his other company Tesla.
This victory gives Elon’s SpaceX the confidence in achieving his vision of developing rockets large enough to send people to Mars. Though life on Mars seems to be unlikely in the near future, we’re keeping our eyes peeled on SpaceX’s BFR which is set to be revealed sometime in 2020.
