Elon Musk's 'Starman' Last Pic Outta This World

Elon Musk's 'Starman' Last Pic Outta This World

With 27 engines, the Falcon Heavy is capable of lifting 140,000 pounds into low Earth orbit.

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket successfully completed its long-awaited maiden flight on Tuesday, roaring into the blue skies over Kennedy Space Center to usher in a new era of spaceflight.

The Falcon Heavy took off amid frenzied cheers yesterday from the launchpad in Cape Canaveral, Florida, that had been used in the past to launch the iconic Apollo missions to the moon.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has unveiled the final photo of his Tesla Roadster and its Starman mannequin leaving Earth in the rear-view mirror after launching on the first Falcon Heavy rocket Tuesday (Feb. 6), and the view is spectacular.

The Falcon Heavy was first created to send humans to the moon or Mars, but Musk said Monday it is now being considered as a carrier of equipment and supplies to deep space destinations.

Before the launch, Musk tweeted a simulation of what it would look like, complete with the space bound Tesla.

We might also see some testing on the Big Falcon Rocket, a new and enormous rocket that's created to replace the Falcon 9s and Falcon Heavys.

After having overshot Mars' orbit - its original destination - Musk's vehicle is now heading towards the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

The Falcon Heavy has many functions, including its ability to bring cargo to the worldwide space station.

While Musk says the spacecraft "exceeded Mars orbit", this does not mean it actually reached the Red Planet's orbit.

Shortly after take-off, all three booster stages returned to the Earth's surface. Because it's not just the first time a private company sent something beyond Earth's orbit, it's also the first time a production auto was sent in space, to orbit the Sun for millions of years. In December 2010, for instance, Musk launched a wheel of cheese into space during a test flight of the company's Falcon 9 rocket.
