Target for SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch is February 6

Elon Musk tweeted that the first flight for the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch is targeting February 6, 2018.

A successful launch would mean that the payload capacity would triple versus the Falcon 9 rockets. However, the price would only increase from $62 million to $90 million. The cost to launch per pound would drop in half.

They will try to reuse the three bottom stages.

A successful launch would also likely mean that Elon Musk’s Tesla car would reach Mars.
