Space X Falcon Heavy Launch

Postby xelint » Tue Feb 06, 2018

If you didn't see it live it was pretty impressive. Wait until near the end where both boosters land vertically back on the pad. The future is NOW!!!! :D

Falcon Heavy generates 4.7 million pounds of thrust at launch, more powerful than any other rocket in current use.

Seeing the 2 boosters landing back on the pad simultaneously was amazing. Way cool.

An endless spinout.

I'm not a huge fan of Elon Musk, but it's so cool to see someone with the stones to go big.

What a sight to see in person. The sonic boom those reusable boosters make coming back down sure shake the windows. Another great launch here in Cape Canaveral. Rocket town U.S.A. God bless America. You could hear little rocket man whimpering all the way from North Korea on the beach here. What a crowd. Yep. We do love our rockets. :thumbup:
