SpaceX's new rocket to ferry Tesla Roadster to Mars

SpaceX's new rocket to ferry Tesla Roadster to Mars

Musk says that the first Falcon Heavy's payload will be his midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity song in it. According to him, the rocket will go into orbit of Mars. "Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent". That aside, the launch is an important one for the company, with the launch manifest, already showing multiple Falcon Heavy launches booked for the future.

Musk has spoken openly about the non-zero chance that the Falcon Heavy will explode during its first flight, and because of that he once said he wanted stick the "silliest thing we can imagine" on top of the rocket. "We know exactly what happened to this particular booster". Overall, the aforementioned Merlin engines will provide in excess of 5 million pounds of thrust, trumping all other rockets now in existence and putting it close to the power level the Space Shuttle produced at takeoff.

It has said that reused rockets will be a part of the maiden launch of the Falcon Heavy, which is essentially three Falcon 9 rockets, the company's current workhorse, strapped together.

It is a more powerful rocket that SpaceX hopes to use for missions to the Moon and Mars. The company pushed back Heavy's maiden flight a few times: it was originally gunning for a summer launch but eventually moved it to November. It's called the BFR, or Big Falcon Rocket, which inside the company is nicknamed the "Big F-king Rocket".

In the meantime, the Falcon Heavy is meant to boost the amount of cargo SpaceX can take into space for its customers. It's unclear if the company will attempt to recover the boosters of this maiden rocket. Musk said at a press conference earlier this year that Heavy might not even make it to orbit the first time it leaves the atmosphere.
