Caption: Falcon Heavy side cores landing successfully in their touchdown zones in Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, USA, after the rocket's first flight on 6th February 2018. Falcon Heavy is a reusable super heavy-lift launch vehicle being designed and manufactured by SpaceX. It is the most powerful US rocket since Saturn V and the most powerful operational rocket in the world. The launch was successful, carrying a payload containing Elon Musk's Tesla roadster car into an elliptical orbit around the Sun. The third booster was meant to land on a droneship in the Atlantic Ocean, but was unable to control its descent and crashed into the ocean.
