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.

So did that guy just volunteer to die in space? He wouldn't be able to live more than I week up there. I can't believe that they allowed this (although I guess free choice is free choice).

+j marston ...do you mean the "free choice" issue? Well for the most part I would agree that you should be free to do really risky things. But this seems so obviously dangerous that I don't see how he could survive it. It is just like suicide. That's my opinion anyway and I totally understand that he had a different opinion and I respect that. Just really weird tbh. I guess the good news is that he will, in a sense, "live forever" in outerspace. I know that Elon Musk wants to die on Mars so that is probably why he allowed this - he "understands" that desire I guess.

Welcome to the 1960s. Get over it and stop crying like a girl. We launched much bigger rocket back then and went to the moon many times. - and we sent an actual working car - and drove it on the moon. In fact, it is still there today and still works. Oh, we did it within 9 years too. You generation will take 30 years to do the same thing. And all the yapping about landing a rocket standing up - that was done by NASA in 1965. How do you think we landing on the moon? Not only did we land standing up, but we took off again in the same rocket without any assistance or repairs. Nothing new at SpaceX. Same old stuff but done slower and more expensively and smaller.

Usually when someone make a video to celebrate a personal success they only include what they did right, trying to forget about mistakes or things that didn't go to plan.
I love the fact that in this video we get to see the rocket landing in the water and that they openly talk about it.
Good job to everyone involved from someone who understands absolutely nothing about rocket science, and thank you for giving yur best to carry us all in the next Space Age.

The most important thing to note is that there was not only a sign with the words DON'T PANIC written in friendly letters on the car, but several towels were placed in the glove compartment. A towel, as we all know, is the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.

hopefully SpaceX will sort out the gremlins with the core landings as the Falcon Heavy and the recent Falcon 9 core landing attempt went pear shaped again

That's me in the red shirt to the right at 0:50. It was a beautiful launch that day, just wish they did not make us back up a quarter of a mile off the fence. Watching the boosters separate and fly back down was pretty surreal and my favorite part.

u lucky b*****d, i bet the sound was awesome live and to see both the boosters land - like u said surreal, thats one hell of a party trick

The people of 1903 witnessed the first airplane flight in history. It was thought to be impossible, but we did it. The people of 1903 had no clue that only 66 years later—within a human lifespan—would we walk on the surface of the moon. Although space travel has been somewhat dormant for almost the same amount of time that it took us to get from the skies to the heavens, Elon Musk is changing that for good. We’re opening our eyes again and we’re keeping them open. Today, with the rapid growth of science, technology, and knowledge, imagine where we’ll be in 66 years. Imagine the life our children and grandchildren will wake up to.

Godspeed, Elon. Godspeed.

Why the first terrorist attack in space?



Due to the development of affordable satellite Internet offered by Ilon Mask in its Starlink project, 12,000 satellites will launch into the near-Earth orbit, which will cover the planet with affordable high-speed Internet.

This will be a financial shock for mobile telecommunication companies, etc., with their second business plans (5G, 6G, etc.). Because people will start to throw out mobile numbers and communicate directly through the available satellite Internet. There is a great danger of the first on the planet of a terrorist act that will be committed in space.

Do you think in centuries from now, when our species are unrecognisable, have explored the galaxy, mastered the laws of physics they'll look back at this and thank us for pushing our limits? We're taking the first steps towards greatness for the human race. I'm so immensely proud.

I 100% agree, but I don’t even think people now give enough credit to the people from the past for the contributions they’ve made. Hopefully, future humans will be smarter and more thankful of the people who sent them one small step ahead. ;)
