SPACEX FALCON HEAVY LAUNCH - LIVE: MOST POWERFUL ROCKET IN OPERATION SET TO ENTER SPACE CARRYING ELON MUSK'S TESLA ROADSTER CAR.

SpaceX is about to undertake one of the most ambitious rocket launches ever seen.

The company will send its new Falcon Heavy – twice as powerful as the rockets in operation today, and the most powerful seen since the Saturn V was launched in the 60s – to carry a Tesla Roadster into space. Then it will drop back down again, landing its three separate parts on Earth with the hope of re-using them.

Taken together, the mission represents one of the best hopes for allowing humans to explore our nearby planets once again. Some version of the rocket could eventually carry humans to Mars, and the re-usable rocket could drastically reduce the cost of doing so.
