SpaceX builds the most powerful rocket in the world

An animation released by SpaceX shows each step of Falcon Heavy's journey into space.

If it works, Falcon Heavy will become the world's most powerful operational rocket.

In an interview with Ars on Monday, SpaceX founder Elon Musk said the company had tested as much as it could on the ground. But there will be a auto orbiting the Sun that remains a memorial to the SpaceX engineers who made its launch possible, assuming it doesn't blow up before it gets there.

In the event of a delay, the forecast for Wednesday looks similar, though conditions would dip to 70% "go".

The Falcon Heavy rocket, built by the private company SpaceX, is set to lift off for the first time Tuesday. I would really like to emphasize that the odds of success are not super high.

The rocket will head east over the Atlantic Ocean.

The three-hour launch window opens at 1:30 p.m. and Air Force weather officials say there is an 80 percent chance of favorable weather.

The Falcon Heavy is essentially three smaller, Falcon 9 rockets strapped together, adding up to a total of 27 engines. "Could do crewed missions to the moon and Mars with orbital refilling, but better to leave that to the BFR program". There's no need to be alarmed as they're not harmful or damaging, according to NASA.

If the upper stage makes it through that radiation, SpaceX should get a live feed from the Roadster. Expect it to return to Port Canaveral before the end of the week.

We've known about Musk's desire to launch his Tesla into space since December, but it wasn't until last week that the company got the required government nod.

Created to have twice the lifting capacity of any other vehicle, the Falcon Heavy will blast off from Nasa's Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, carrying a red sports convertible with a dummy at the wheel. It's SpaceX CEO Elon Musk's own auto, a cherry-red Tesla Roadster.

The payload will follow a long, oval orbit around the Sun which will take the vehicle as far out as Mars.

There is also a chance the Tesla might not make it beyond low-Earth orbit. In hundreds of years time the IoT devices, apps, 3D printers, quadcopters or whatever else we toil over will be long forgotten.

"There are three cameras on the Roadster", Musk said.

"It is guaranteed to be exciting, one way or another", the quirky 46-year-old South African-born space visionary and wealthy businessman told reporters ahead of Tuesday's launch, expected at about 1:30 pm (1830 GMT). The Falcon Heavy could very well revolutionize access to space, making it more reliable and far less expensive. "It's more payload capability than any vehicle in history apart from the Saturn V" - NASA's famous moon rocket", said Musk.

"Guaranteed to be exciting, one way or another", he said.
