Falcon Heavy: SpaceX's giant rocket launches successfully

The Guardian.. Richard Luscombe at Cape Canaveral... 2 hrs ago

A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket lifts off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Reuters A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket lifts off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The world’s most powerful space rocket lit the skies above Florida on Tuesday afternoon as it lifted off on a first deep-space voyage that could bring closer the first manned mission to Mars.

SpaceX, the upstart private spaceflight company that developed its new Falcon Heavy rocket by strapping together three reusable boosters from its smaller Falcon 9 cargo craft, had given the flight only a 50-50 chance of success. On Monday, Elon Musk, the company’s billionaire founder, had even expressed fears the 27-engine rocket might blow up on the launchpad.

But in spite of a delay of two hours and 15 minutes, the launch went without a hitch and provided a spectacular fireworks show for an estimated half a million spectators who packed the beaches and prime viewing sites near the Kennedy Space Centre.

I find it odd that Elon Musk included a Tesla automobile in the payload.
People that bought and paid for a Tesla automobile can't get one delivered to them here on earth but he can deliver one to outer space.
Is Elon Musk related to P.T. Barnum?
