WATCH shock moment Heavy Falcon booster FAILED to land on drone ship

Prior to the launch, Musk had told reporters that the challenges of developing the new rocket meant the chances of a successful first launch might be only 50-50.

Thousands of onlookers in Florida could be heard cheering on the company's livestream, which was viewed by about 3 million people.

Any space launch must be licensed by the FAA, which focuses on making sure equipment won't fall in the wrong place and that the rocket's trajectory won't interfere with other objects, Sowers said.

In a tweet, SpaceX chief executive officer Musk shared the new orbit that his vehicle is traversing. "It can launch things direct to Pluto and beyond, no stop needed".

Elon Musk has sent his Tesla Roadster into space and whilst the images of it are pretty remarkable now, one notable academic reckons it will be completely destroyed within a year.

"It can launch payloads straight to Pluto and beyond...it can launch giant satellites", Musk said Tuesday. After the Falcon Heavy successfully flew into the sky, it detached its twin boosters, and instead of simply letting them crash into the ocean somewhere, SpaceX managed to land both boosters safely and almost simultaneously. But the payload has overshot that route and is now headed even deeper into space.

Shares in Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT) Acquired by Bluestein RH & Co
Finally, BidaskClub lowered Wal-Mart Stores from a "strong-buy" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Tuesday, June 20th. It turned negative, as 43 investors sold PGR shares while 189 reduced holdings. 14 funds opened positions while 37 raised stakes.

But in this case, the shot reveals "Starman", a life-size dummy wearing SpaceX's designed spacesuit, taking a casual spin around the planet in - wait for it - a Tesla Roadster. SpaceX commentator John Innsbrucker said it was "everything you could want in a test-flight". He tweeted late on Tuesday night that the rocket's upper stage had made a successful final burn, sending the vehicle and its mannequin passenger out of Earth's orbit into an orbit around the Sun that brings it close to Mars.

He announced a year ago he planned to put his auto on the inaugural Falcon Heavy flight.

It's not clear whether the vehicle will survive flying through the asteroid belt, but if it does it could continue to cruise through space for millions of years.

Tuesday's success marked a huge step forward for a company that's already managed to shake up the rocket industry with its groundbreaking technology. Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two, with the ability to lift into orbit almost 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)-a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel.

Those rockets have a single first-stage booster, and SpaceX has safely recaptured them after 21 Falcon 9 launches. Also, six of the recovered Falcon 9 boosters have been reused in subsequent missions, thus reducing the costs of each mission.

Within minutes following its launch, the Falcon Heavy's two side boosters separated from the central rocket in one of the most critical points of the flight.
