“SpaceX has completed testing of all three first-stage cores on its Falcon Heavy rocket. The company is preparing for the rocket’s first flight test, scheduled for early November. ‘Falcon Heavy’s 3 first stage cores have all completed testing at our rocket development facility in McGregor, TX,’ the aerospace company announced on Twitter. SpaceX touts the Falcon Heavy as the ‘world’s most powerful rocket.”Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost,’ the company claims on its website. SpaceX expects the Falcon Heavy to eventually ferry crew and cargo between Earth and Mars.” (09/04/17)
