    When Falcon Heavy lifts off, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.

    I'll be walking out my office back door to watch it. I hope the wind is right so I can hear it too.

    Pushed back to 3:05 right now though.

    Great animation!!!

    I knew I had seen a car in space before. :crazy:

    The opening scene from the movie "Heavy Metal" had a Corvette (and space suited driver) deployed in space from a shuttle.
