Spacex will land three first stage boosters of Falcon Heavy and Elon indicates the Heavy's upper stages have enough power for return as well

Spacex is seeking federal permission for two new areas for landing spent rockets.

The new landing areas are needed to prepare for the possibility of landing three rockets – all within minutes of each other.

“SpaceX expects to fly Falcon Heavy for the first time later this year,” the company said in a statement responding to questions. “We are also seeking regulatory approval to build two additional landing pads at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. We hope to recover all three Falcon Heavy rockets, though initially we may attempt drone ship landings” at sea

The Falcon Heavy will launch with three first-stage rocket boosters, and SpaceX hopes to return each booster to separate landing zones at its complex simultaneously.

Currently the Spacex Heavy is scheduled for a November launch
