SpaceX targeting late January for Falcon Heavy debut

SpaceX targeting late January for Falcon Heavy debut

Musk, 46, made the announcement via Twitter earlier this month, telling his followers the first flight of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, will blast off from Cape Canaveral, site of the historic Apollo 11 mission with his vehicle on board.

A Twitter post Wednesday morning indicated that SpaceX plans to carry out the launch Friday. It is expected to continue doing that in 2018, and later in January, it will also test its Falcon Heavy rocket. He's also a 47-year space industry veteran. That failure put the program on halt for almost 3 months but in the coming year China is looking at as many as 40 launches, with the pièce de résistance being an attempt at a landing on the Moon in May or June.

Now that Playboy might shut down its print edition, SpaceX is here to help with a video of its sexy new Falcon Heavy rocket. This orbit will cross the orbit of Mars, so the auto will get close to the red planet without remaining in orbit.

Meanwhile, the fate of the Falcon Heavy launch remains unknown.

The mission marks SpaceX's most ambitious project to date. But don't get too excited just yet: SpaceX has a history of delays.

'We wanted to fly Heavy this year, ' she wrote.

And if all goes well there, Falcon Heavy should be ready for launch within the first few weeks of 2018.

It will be returned to the launch pad within next week before the fire test, and then the engines will be ignited. Typically, rockets with a similar triple booster first stage (Titan IV, Delta IV Heavy) have used relatively powerful separation rockets to more sternly force the side boosters away from the main stage, generally with great success.

The vehicle - which also features a removable glass roof - can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 100 km/h) in 1.9 seconds and has a top speed over 250mph (400 kph).

The Falcon Heavy rocket sits on its launchpad at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. "I want to make sure and set expectations accordingly". Most importantly to SpaceX, the cores have been created to safely come back to Earth, where they can be reused for future missions.

The United States has once again risen to become the country with the greatest number of space launches in 2017, buoyed by the strength of private launch companies.
