  • SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch Slips to 2018

The rocket, known as the Falcon Heavy, will lift off from Cape Canaveral, using the same launchpad as Apollo 11, Musk tweeted late Friday in the U.S. CEO Elon Musk said that he will send personal Tesla Roadster as the payload.

SpaceX also ultimately plans to be able to recover all three rocket cores that power the Falcon Heavy, just like it's done over the a year ago with main rocket booster stage of its Falcon 9s. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Company executives previously spoke of how hard it is to build such a large rocket-powered by three Falcon 9 cores, meaning it has thrice the thrust of original Falcon 9.

If his Tesla company is still in "production Hell" with its most important product, the Model 3, his SpaceX company is doing very well, prepping to launch the Falcon Heavy, Musk's rocket for Mars.

Musk expects his Roadster to remain in deep space for a billion of years, unless Falcon Heavy blows up on its way to the red planet. Falcon Heavy missions will send large payloads to orbit inside a composite fairing, which will protect satellites during delivery to destinations including low Earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit, and geosynchronous orbit.




The first flight of the Falcon Heavy is expected to launch in January of 2018, a bit of a delay from its initial 2013 launch date.

He wants to land at least two of the spacecraft on Mars in 2022 carrying equipment - and then ones transporting people in 2024.

The rocket is a blend of three of SpaceX's Falcon 9 strapped together; subsequently, it will have thrice the thrust of one single Falcon 9 rocket. Not that the first humans on Mars will be able to drive it. Musk said at a press conference earlier this year that Heavy might not even make it to orbit the first time it leaves the atmosphere.
