Elon Musk shared SpaceX’s first ‘draft animation’ of the planned Falcon Heavy launch – or how it will go ideally. The Falcon Heavy uses three Falcon 9 boost cores to deliver a lot more thrust and cargo capacity. SpaceX says it’s got twice the thrust of the next largest active rocket in existence. Falcon Heavy is a key ingredient for Musk’s plans to eventually help humans colonize Mars. It’s set for its first test launch in November – but Musk cautions that a lot could go long on that first flight.
