Falcon Heavy launch

SpaceX launched on Tuesday afternoon from Cape Canaveral, Florida, its biggest rocket.

CEO Elon Musk’s space company launched Falcon Heavy for the first time. A successful flight would make the rocket the most powerful in use today. Musk has noted before that failure is a possibility for the demonstration flight, saying there is a “lot that can go wrong.”

At liftoff Falcon Heavy created a combined 2268 million kg (5 million Pounds)of thrust* ,Musk has called it the “most powerful rocket in the world”.

SpaceX also attempted a recovery of Falcon Heavy’s three boosters, returning to the ground at Cape Canaveral and the final third to the company’s autonomous drone ship floating off the Florida coast.
