A Perfect Lift-Off For The Falcon Heavy

It gave us chills!  Did you miss yesterday’s launch? It was perfect!  The Falcon Heavy is 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.  Heavy is designed to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.
