SpaceX sets historic first Falcon Heavy launch for February 6

American Eastern Standard Time for about 10 seconds, spewing violent exhaust and steam, a video on SpaceX's official twitter showed.

Musk has said the Falcon Heavy will launch his own cherry-red Tesla Roadster into space. "Generated quite a thunderhead of steam", SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter just after the test. "Launching in a week or so". It is likely that the main objective of Falcon Heavy's extended static fire was to ensure that SpaceX had developed a safe and functional method of igniting all 27 engines without damaging itself, a real risk from the torque of each engine's turbopump operating in the same orientation.

World's most powerful rocket Falcon Heavy.

The rocket fired all 27 engines for Wednesday's test.

Future missions for Falcon Heavy involve taking payloads into space for Arabsat and Inmarsat.

It is created to carry large payloads to orbit and could eventually take people to the Moon or Mars.

Moreover, the SES corporation - one of two of SpaceX's most prominent commercial customers - was the first of SpaceX's customers to publicly confirm that they had reviewed the available data of Falcon 9's performance following the Zuma launch and could confirm that the Falcon 9 performed perfectly during its 8 January 2018 launch. After blasting off from NASA's historic Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center, all three will attempt vertical landings, two on land and one on a floating offshore platform.
