SpaceX launches Falcon Heavy Rocket with Tesla Roadster Car and Starman

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has successfully launched its first Falcon Heavy rocket, the largest and most powerful functional rocket in the world . After the launch, both first-stage boosters returned safely to ground.

Since it is test flight, it is not carrying Satellite, but it is not empty. It carried a model of the Tesla Roadster Car with a dummy pilot named as “Starman” wearing a SpaceX spacesuit.

The Roadster had three cameras providing a livestream of visuals for few hours.

Falcon Heavy is most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two.

Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.
