SpaceX is recognized for its spectacular video coverage of rocket launches and landings. The company, led by Elon Musk, offers real-time images of its missions, starting from Falcon-9, Falcon Heavy, and now its plans for the first orbital launch of Starship.
SpaceX launched its most powerful rocket, the Falcon Heavy, on a classified mission for the United States Space Force (USSF) from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. This was the first launch of the Falcon Heavy this year. The rocket successfully deployed the satellite in a geostationary orbit, which is over 35,000 kilometers above Earth.
The Falcon Heavy has successfully launched five times and landed a total of 11 times. As one of the most powerful operational rockets in the world, It can launch almost 64 tonnes into orbit. At launch, the rocket’s 27 Merlin engines generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust, which is equivalent to the thrust of approximately 18 747 aircraft. In 2023, SpaceX plans to conduct five launches of the Falcon Heavy in addition to the first orbital launch of the Starship spacecraft.
