  • SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launches from the Kennedy Space Center

This was SpaceX's first commercial Falcon Heavy launch, as last year's test payload was Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster. The side boosters landed nearly simultaneously at Landing Zones 1 and 2, and the center stage came back down shortly after that on the drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You".

About eight minutes after liftoff, the reusable rocket's two side boosters landed back on ground near the launch center, showed SpaceX's live broadcast.

The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in use today.

About 34 minutes after liftoff, the shiny silver satellite was successfully deployed.

Arabsat CEO Khaled bin Ahmed Balkheyour called the launch a, "momentous leap in the field of commercial satellites manufacturing and launching". The Falcon Heavy is essentially three of those single rockets strapped together. The center-core stage continued on and made a flawless landing on the drone ship, "Of Course I Still Love You" in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. After stage separation, that booster landed successfully on a drone ship stationed hundreds of miles out in the Atlantic Ocean.

The historic launch was watched by millions around the globe thanks to Mr Musk's body decision to mount a cherry-red Tesla sports vehicle as the rocket's payload.

Falcon Heavy carried a communications satellite forSaudi-based telecom firm Arabsat, which will beam internet and television services over Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

The next SpaceX mission from Florida, CRS-17, was recently announced for 5:55 a.m. April 26.

Paul Niedermann of Rockford, Ill., was among those who made a special trip to Florida to see the launch. "I believe we are entering a new dawn, Space Age 2.0 if you will, and I'm more motivated than ever to witness this for myself". So, the Falcon Heavy can deliver people to the moon and even to Mars. The auto, which was carrying a space-suited mannequin nicknamed Starman, was vaulted into outer space and is expected to orbit the sun for the foreseeable future. But the preferred method remains NASA's own Space Launch System mega rocket - if it can be ready by then.

And the launch came just a year and two months after the Falcon Heavy took off on its maiden voyage on February 6, 2018.
