Falcon Heavy & Starman

  • Published on:  3/10/2018
  • When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became 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.

    Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.

    Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.

    I'm surprised some clown environmentalist hasn't started whining about the junk that was left in space and how it will end civilization as we know it !!!
    100K years from now some archeologist will find Starman and wonder just what in the hell it is with these morons !!!!!
    ROFLMAO !!!
    Nice one Falcon crew and congratulations, much success ahead for you !!!

    If he isn't capable of his dream, he'll pioneer the ones who can achieve it. Hes the foundation of what will become the new age.

    I can't stop coming back to this video, I had the privilege of seeing the launch in person and almost every time I come back to see this I'm nearly in tears. This video is so unbelievably inspiring for me and I dream that one day I can work for SpaceX or a similar company and help make space easier to reach. This makes me excited for the future, hopefully I can help contribute to its shape.
