Default SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket Launch today

Spacex Faclon Heavy Launch scheduled for this afternoon.

Watch on SpaceX.com. This is the largest rocket to Launch since the Saturn 5 during the Apollo missions. Should be interesting.

i know its cool and all to send a rocket to mars, but this whole idea of permanently putting humans up there is ridiculous. those financial resources could be used in so many ways right here on earth.

of course, many will argue the point and give reasons why my thinking is asinine or wrong, etc..i get totally get it, its just my opinion.

If we are going to spend billions-trillions in space i believe using space to protect earth makes far more sense..i have no idea what that would be though. That would also probably be a scam.

Tourists are really packing in. I went out to pick up some grub and US1 is lined with cars as far as you can see. The static test firing went well. 27 Merlin engines will create quite the sight and sound. The 2 side boosters will return to KSC treating us to multiple BOOMS. The center will land on the drone ship. Musk's Tesla roadster will head into the interstellar void. Perfect weather for it too!

A fantastic inaugural launch of the world's most powerful rocket! That thing would really light the Space Coast up with a night launch. The two double booms were nice too.
