SpaceX готовится к тестовому запуску самой мощной ракеты в мире

The Falcon Heavy rocket will be sent into space Tesla car

Private aerospace company SpaceX on Tuesday will test their largest rocket, which in case of successful start will be on a journey around the Sun a sports car.

Rocket, the Falcon Heavy should start from the site of the Kennedy Space center in Florida.

The missile is fitted with three accelerators and 27 engines to provide thrust more than 2 million kg. In case of successful tests, it will be the most powerful rocket of all that are used today, and most powerful rocket NASA Saturn 5 that took astronauts to the moon 45 years ago.

Although usually when the test missile launches as the payload used steel or concrete blocks, the head of SpaceX Elon Musk decided to put a rocket Tesla car, at the wheel which will sit the dummy Starman.

Last month, Musk wrote on Twitter that he liked the idea of sending the car in an endless journey through space, where it after millions of years are visible to members of an alien race.
