SpaceX launches Falcon Heavy
February 07, 2018

The world's most powerful rocket, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, has been sent toward an orbit near Mars on a maiden test flight.

It was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in US state of Florida which is the same launch pad used by NASA nearly fifty years ago to send men to the moon.

The rocket also carries a sports car aiming for an endless road trip past Mars.
