SpaceX launches Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time in three years
(ORDO NEWS) — SpaceX launched military satellites on a super-heavy Falcon Heavy launch vehicle on Tuesday, November 1. Falcon Heavy launched for the first time in 3 years.
The launch vehicle lifted off at 09:41 local time from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.
Due to thick fog, observers who were at a distance of 5 kilometers did not even see the launch pad, but they perfectly heard the roar of 27 first-stage engines.
Both side boosters separated two minutes after liftoff and returned to Cape Canaveral, landing next to each other only a few seconds apart. The central stage of the rocket fell into the sea.
This was the fourth flight of the Falcon Heavy, SpaceX’s most powerful rocket to date. The launch vehicle made its first flight in 2018, when it launched the red Tesla convertible of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
The next two launches were carried out in 2019, with satellites as the payload of the rocket.
