Spacex Falcon Heavy three first stage cores testing complete

• by brian wang

The Spacex Falcon Heavy is scheduled for an early November launch.

One of the boosters used in the Falcon Heavy test had previously carried a Falcon 9 resupply mission to the International Space Station.

The Falcon Heavy is a variant of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and will consist of a strengthened Falcon 9 rocket core, with two additional Falcon 9 first stages as strap-on boosters. This will increase the low Earth orbit (LEO) maximum payload to 63.8 metric tonnes, compared to 22.8 tonnes for a Falcon 9 full thrust.
