SpaceX Falcon Heavy Sends Tesla Roadster to Space, but First Core Stage Crashes

Today’s Falcon Heavy test flight was a success, demonstrating that the new rocket of SpaceX is capable of sending a Tesla Roadster (and much more) into orbit. However, it has now been confirmed that the first core stage of the rocked did not successfully land on the autonomous ship as planned.

Elon Musk has confirmed that there was not enough rocket propellant left in order to ignite all of the engines on the core stage during its descent back down to earth. The core stage was officially declared a loss, while the two rocket boosters did land successfully.

  1. We all love to watch and read about such great innovations and even every man in this world always wish to know more about what is happening in the space, such inventions is all due to the hard work of scientists who use their brain more than we can use. The day is not far when we wish to have home on the Mars and moon.
