Caption

Falcon Heavy side cores successfully descending to 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.
