SpaceX Launched “Falcon Heavy Rocket” with Sports Car on Top
Elon Reeve Musk the Founder and CEO of SpaceX has got a major success, The tech giant SpaceX has launched World’s first “Falcon heavy Rocket” with a Tesla Sports Car on top for Billion years on the Mars Orbit.
It’s the most powerful vehicle since the shuttle system – which has lifted clear of its pad without incident to soar high over the Atlantic Ocean.
It was billed as a risky test flight in advance of the lift-off.
The SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said that the challenges of developing the new rocket meant the chances of a successful first launching might be only 50-50.
With this debut, the Falcon Heavy Rocket aims to become the most capable launch vehicle available till now.
It is beautifully designed to deliver a maximum payload to low-Earth orbit of 64 tonnes – which is equivalent to putting five London heavy trucks in space.
Such performance is slightly more than double that of the world’s next most powerful rocket, the Delta IV Heavy – but only at one-third of the cost, says Mr. Musk.
We are Very happy to share the launching video of “Falcon heavy Rocket”
The Falcon Heavy Rocket
The Falcon Heavy is having three first-stage boosters, joint together with highly advanced 27 engines in all which is Stretching 40 feet or (12 meters) from the base and standing tall with 230 feet (70 meters), the Falcon Heavy Rocket is three times of the Falcon 9, the SpaceX frequent flyer was only having a single booster. At liftoff, the Falcon Heavy Rocket packs about 5 million pounds of thrust which is more than any other rocket currently operating in the world.
Two of the Falcon Heavy Rocket boosters are recycled from the previous Falcon 9 launches, which were returned minutes later for simultaneous, side-by-side touchdowns at the Cape Carneval, Kennedy Space Center in Florida. There was no immediate confirmation due to signal loss on whether the third booster made it onto the ocean platform.
THE CARGO SPACING
SpaceX’s Elon Musk also runs the electric carmaker Tesla and he put his own cherry-red Tesla Roadster on the Falcon Heavy’s inaugural flight with an attached space-suited dummy at the wheel. Let’s inform you that no sports car or Cargo has ever been rocketed into space before. The Federal Aviation Administration had to sign off on the Heavy-Tesla combo.
Till now, there are steel or concrete slabs or mundane experiments on test flights. The convertible Tesla Roadster was at the top of the rocket which is enclosed for liftoff. The protective cover will drop away later, allowing the car to begin its journey for billions and billions of years also there are three HD camera’s were mounted on Tesla Roadster.
Where is the Final Destination?
SpaceX and Elon Musk is targeting a long, oval orbit around the sun for the Tesla Roadster that will take the car as far out as Mars, and have it making laps for billions of years. The Tesla Roadster will reach the vicinity of Mars in around six months.
Elon Musk said that the car could come fairly close to Mars and that there are “extremely low” chances that it could crash into the planet. Musk is passionately intent on establishing a city on the red planet, with hordes of Earthlings and building materials flying there on a super-extra-mega SpaceX rocket that is still in development.
The Rocket Launch Pad for Falcon Heavy
The Falcon Heavy Rocket lifted off from the same launch pad which was used by NASA to send astronauts to the moon. SpaceX leases Launch Complex 39A from NASA. Not only did LC-39A, as it’s known, serve as the departure point for all the Apollo moonshots from 1968 to 1972, it was the scene for most of the space shuttle liftoffs.
Its location at Kennedy Space Center and it keeps human beings at least three miles away, a distance determined by NASA in the 1960s to be safe just in case the Saturn V exploded on the pad.
What’s Next? What’s the Future?
SpaceX and Elon Musk has already lined up the customers for Falcon Heavy Rocket. It is designed to hoist supersize satellites as well as equipment to the moon, Mars or other far-flung points. The private company’s online flight manifest shows the U.S. Air Force as already signed up.
Other aerospace companies are developing rockets and NASA is sinking billions of dollars into a massive new rocket called the Space Launch System or SLS, that’s meant to return astronauts to the moon and also get them one day to Mars.
