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.
