Falcon Heavy Test Flight

  • Published on Feb 6, 2018
  • Following its first test launch, Falcon Heavy is now the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9.
    Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.

    only one thing: is the car re-useable for another launch? i mean, it isnt really good for your budget, to buy a 100,000$ car for every payload it brings to space, in this case, the starman.

    That rocket is NOT going in to space. Not with (kerosene - O2) as propelleant, for that only gives a (Exhaust Velocity (km/Sec) 2.800 meters/sec. And to go (Low Earth Orbit) you going to have a (Exhaust Velocity(km/Sec) 8.000 meters/Sec. So that why that Rocket is not going to Space.

      _"It makes it very difficult to leave Earth with significant payload. He also said, "No one has ever left Earth on a Rocket.""_
      No one has ever left Earth on a rocket with chemical propellant. That's what the entire lecture that quote is cherry picked from is about.

      This comment, written here, is from "The Rocket Equstion" by Don Pettit from NASA. And he says, Tyranny of the Rocket Eqastion is "Mageitude of Gravity and Energy in Chemical Bands". It makes it very difficult to leave Earth with significant payload. He also said, "No one has ever left Earth on a Rocket."

      You are assumption is wrong: www.reddit.com/r/askscience/comments/2nlhhh/can_a_rocket_travel_faster_than_the_speed_of_its/ -> "The change in velocity is equal to the exhaust velocity times the natural log of the ratio of starting mass to ending mass" -> this comes from ideal rocket equation.
      Since "ideal rocket" does not exist, real delta v is much more lower, but still enough to achieve orbital velocities.
      And btw: if you are making such fundamental mistakes - like the one in this comment -> please consider removing at least some of the "Hoax exposing" from Your channel. They are probably constructed around same wrong assumptions, and You might potentially mislead some of TVclip users.

      Pollution level created by Falcon 9 launch is similar to that generated by average size town (20-50k peoples) by 1 hour. Since Falcon Heavy is basically 3 Falcon 9 cores -> so You have 3 hours of average city.

    Is it just me or are the Hollywood hosts standing in front of a green screen throughout this whole production? Also, how is it that the images of Earth from the roadster look soooo unrealistically bright blue but in other footage that's not the case? Some CGI, maybe? If you ask me, something smells fishy about this whole show.

    Para un astronauta que orbita alrededor de la Tierra, la temperatura puede variar de forma brusca en cuestión de segundos, dependiendo de que se encuentre frente al Sol o protegido por la sombra de nuestro planeta. En este último caso, la temperatura puede llegar hasta -180º C. Como hacen los plasticos del coche para no derretirse , ya que mr musk affirmo que no se habian hecho pruebas previas al coche . Muchas gracias . Un saludo

    A tremendous rocket with potential. I do wonder the purpose of launching an electric car into space with a mannequin in it...even for a test flight perhaps there could have been some scientific equipment. The booster returns were well done and I hope to see the main body return successful on the next test flight.
