Falcon Heavy & Starman

  • Published on Mar 11, 2018
  • 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.

    After Musk's sick disgusting tweet regarding the doctor who stayed with the kids in the cave in Thailand, I hope each and every rocket SpaceX launches explodes and that Musk goes bankrupt. What a turd Elon Musk is.

    Damn! Looks like a little bit on onion juice found it’s way into my eyes for the umpteenth time, just as those twin boosters executed their synchronised landings. Very emotional video indeed - if you’re truly appreciative of what you’re looking at - the ingenuity of humankind!

    This is how humanity advanced, in 1960 we raced who will get first human to space and orbit. Now, we are reusing rockets like nothing, racing who will get first to Mars. When we landed on moon, everyone was thinking: 1972 - manned venus flyby 1980 - Humanity on mars 2000 - going interstellar

    I saw all of the Apollo launches and moon landings. I saw the STS 1 launch on a giant screen in an auditorium at Goddard Spaceflight Center. I saw STS7 in person cro Cocoa Beach. I saw the voyager photos of Saturn and Uranus live as they came in. Seeing this launch and especially seeing those two boosters landing in tandem ranks no lower than second on the list. Right after "One small step...". I was almost to the point of cheering as loudly as the crowd at SpaceX headquarters. It still brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. This was very special. It is good to see that somebody in this country still knows that doing it right beats doing it on schedule.

    In YOUR triumph....you SHOWED the one failed booster.....and this makes my insignificant self love you even more. Wish you would have Mr. Jerry Woodfill speak to your organization.....he's almost 80 now...better hurry before you lost a contract :)!!!! An American icon....the alarm engineer for the Apollo 11 & 13 missions....and when you meet him...he has what NASA once had.....and hope it will get once again.....but namesakes and "who" you knows will only get you so far.....and it's NOT to the moon!!!!! Good luck, SpaceX!!!!! (Call Jerry - his uniqueness is quite like yours) - Sorry, I never saw this ONCE when I had a badge onsite....not like Jerry....psst....NASA WON'T return to the moon without MORE people like Jerry.....they all work for SpaceX now lol....

    "she could spit in the eyes of fools" love the subtly of that statement. throwing shade at everyone whose ever doubted SpaceX and now the power that is Falcon Heavy. What a lovely time to be a live, the future is bright. Can't wait to see BFR make her maiden voyage.
    seeing those kids excited, I rember being that little, the wonderment, the excitement. I remember when Obama announced we had to cut back on NASA, that was like the last but of my childhood dying. But seeing something like this, a man like Musk pushing the boundaries and reinventing the wheel basically, that's everything. the kid in me is very much alive today.
