Elon Musk tweets first photographs of Falcon Heavy rocket

Илон Маск собирается построить поезд будущего

A few weeks ago, Elon Musk announced his plans to launch a Tesla Roadster into space on the maiden flight of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket. Not the most subtle of promotions, for sure.

Musk notes that rocket payloads for first test flights are generally just things that provide weight to simulate real cargo, like blocks of concrete or steel. Even still, this is some unforgettable imagery, which will likely burn itself into our collective minds as we think of Tesla, Musk or Space X. Which is probably the point.

SpaceX's 70-meter-high reusable rocket comprises three booster cores compared to the single one used by its current Falcon 9 rocket, with each core containing nine Merlin engines. Thus, while the release of Tesla's Full Self-Driving feature appears to be delayed, the upcoming navigation overhaul for early 2018 might be the electric carmaker's way of paving the way for more advanced Autopilot features to follow. The price of a Falcon Heavy mission starts at $90 million, according to SpaceX's website. -, Elon Musk replied with the only sane answer apart from the one we've already touched (media publicity): "I love the thought of a vehicle drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race millions of years in the future".

The 229.6-foot-tall Falcon Heavy will be able to lift 140,660 pounds to low-Earth orbit. Joy Dunn, an engineer at the company, tweeted on December 1 that "this is legit and of course there will be cameras!"
