US Air Force 'launches AIRSTRIKE on ROGUE SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket'

Ground Control to Major Tom could we play a different song

For good measure, he also added a dummy named "Starman" in a spacesuit.

En route it successfully jettisoned its two recycled side boosters which then flew back down to Earth, before gently landing at Cape Canaveral eight minutes after launch in an extraordinary coordinated touchdown. One is Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin, which in 2015 made history by achieving the first vertical landing from space with its New Shepard rocket.

Astronomers have caught a glimpse of Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster as it travels further and further through space. The shots, particularly those of the Earth, are stunning.

Like so many others, NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold was awe-struck by the livestreaming of "Starman" and his ride. To fill up the space that would normally be occupied by scientific equipment or another payload, Mr Musk put a vehicle into the rocket - and blasted it out into space, filming it as it went. The 230-foot-tall rocket has a liftoff thrust of 5 million pounds and can carry over 70 tons of payload into Low-Earth Orbit.

After several delays, the SpaceX rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 3:45 p.m. ET.

CRAIG BAILEY, FLORIDA TODAY via USA TODAY NETWORK This image from video provided by SpaceX shows the company's spacesuit in Elon Musk's red Tesla sports auto which was launched into space. The vehicle, launched on Feb 5 through a Space X rocket, to Mars took a wrong turn by powerful thrust of engine.

Musk helped ignite the excitement of the space industry when he sent the most powerful rocket in the world on its first test flight.

Tuesday's success of the Heavy provides a confidence boost to these future plans, Musk said. In a statement, it said that the company will be deriving huge data from the demonstration.

Well true to his word, Musk has said that SpaceX will now start devoting all its resources into building the rocket.

SpaceX is competing with Boeing to be the first to send Americans into orbit from US soil again, something that hasn't happened since NASA's last shuttle flight. That's the same launch pad that hosted Apollo and Space Shuttle missions back in the heyday of US human spaceflight.

"We want a new space race", he said.

However, the Falcon Heavy is still outclassed by the Saturn V, NASA's launch vessel to the Moon in the 1960s and 1970s. "It's going to encourage other companies to say, 'Hey, if SpaceX can do this, paid for with internal funds, then they can do it, too.' I think it'll encourage other companies to raise their sights".
