Elon Musk Says SpaceX Falcon Heavy will launch at the end of January

On Instagram, Elon Musk says the SpaceX Falcon Heavy is now vertical on the former Apollo 11 moon rocket launchpad. At 2500 tons of thrust, equal to 18 Boeing 747 aircraft at full throttle, it will be the most powerful rocket in the world by a factor of two. Excitement on launch day guaranteed, one way or another.

Hold-down test fire next week. Launch end of the month.
