Falcon Heavy & Starman

Follow by Email
When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse. Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.

Comments from Youtube

Hot Shame : When Nasa went to the moon it planted an american flag. Elon Musk launched a car into space and tagged it with "Made on Earth by Humans". This how it should be done!

Diego Cuevas : Me: *Watches this for the 150th time* Also me: Oh it's beautiful *Cries*

Nicolas Davies : As a brazilian, I don't feel part of Apollo program and its acomplishments, but when I saw the "made on earth by humans" it made me cry of happiness and representation.

Wintergatan : Thanks for including the center core!!

Dwight K. Schrute : SpaceX: 2 million subscribers Paul Brothers: 35 million subscribers God truly is dead.

The NerdyGuy : Elon Musk has motivated me emotionally and physically. I am 13 and now that Elon has motivated me I am studying astronautics and physics and I'd like to help the process in which humans are an interplanetary species. See you in a couple years.

Wheatley Who Lives In Space : "Look at those cavemen go" indeed! We've come a long way.

Techtastisch | Experimente und Lifehacks : 1:34 this is such a beautiful and hope brining picture. The future will be awesome and we are one step closer thanks to you!

satya karthik : *made on earth by humans*

Jake Watson : Blue origin fan: Yeah I can't wait till new Glenn. Spacex Fan: Can't wait till BFR to Mars. NASA fan: c'mon do something.

Majestic Audio : that landing was smoother than my handwriting

UltimateDogeMaster9 : *born too early to see galaxies collide, born too late to see the titanic, but born at the perfect time to see starman*


Другая Америка : Keep on returning to watch this inspiring video again and again

The Student Official : This should be the new Physics Book cover

teefkay2 : Sometime in the very near future, it will be really cheap to orbit the earth (~ $50,000 and then less). It should be an absolute requirement of every head of state & every chief diplomat to take one of these rides. Every astronaut comes back from orbit incredibly moved by a) earth without boarders & political boundaries, b) the incredible beauty of the planet, and c) the tiny limits of the planet & its resources in the incredible black hostile universe. Perhaps they might remember this experience when they later attempt to prioritize & solve the world’s serious problems.

BatsOne : 2018. The year Elon Musk took a rocket ship, put an electric car inside, launched it into space, released the car, bought the rocket ship back to Earth and left the car into orbit with the sun. You can complain about whatever aspects of life that you wish. Made on Earth by humans. We're all a part of this. Thanks SpaceX

Michael S : One year later - and still watering my eyes!

Slaythan : RIP centre core 2k18

Tiago Mendonça Fernandes : 1 year on, that shot of the two F9s landing next to each other still gives me goosebumps.

Jonny : Anyone else apply to work at SPACEX and get directed to this video after the application?

Damp potato #36 : Even though this happened at practically the beginning of the year, I still come back to this video and just gawk at the accomplishment this is. I hope I can work for SpaceX someday!

Ev1331 : I was finally born in the right generation.

My Tesla Adventure : I can't believe we are alive to see this.

Dash : meanwhile, there are still people who think this was all faked...

Jeefpop25 Gaming : I cry every time 😭

T7gt7g : Can I like this a thousand times? For a while I thought I had a severe problem feeling emotion... I cry every time watching this and the webcast. Elon, you've truly inspired an innumerable amount of people. I can't possibly thank you enough.

Nouvel Rouge Investment : Humanity eternal dream. It's so very beautiful.

Engineerisaac : Let's be honest. No other company is willing to say "Hold my beer" At the level that SpaceX can.

AskJT : The single greatest video on YouTube. Period.

ChrisBrengel : SpaceX and Elon Musk are too cool-- I can't wait for them to make it to Mars!

Denny Manezzi : *Elon Musk is my hero.* Thanks Elon 🖖

Ethan Ferns : Can we just take a moment to thank and praise the engineers who made this thing?

Soumak Nandi : This isn't just space. This is history.

CreeperBot 793 : Wow the new KSP update looks amazing

Steve Huguenin : My best memories of 2018.. no of the 2010s 🙂 Thank you, SpaceX.

Fábio Corniani : I am flying to my fate into the depth of the space with a heavy burden, fly away like a falcon with his prey Destined to fly, to reach to mars In the shoulders of giants I'm standing to find that dreams don't die dreams won't die Rushing into the unknown a red roadster to a red dot goes But In the void, there still glows the dreams of the Blues grows Destined to fly, to reach to mars In the shoulders of giants I'm standing to find that dreams don't die dreams won't die "I'm dreaming with a future that is inspiring an appealing, being out there among the stars, a multiplanetary species. I'm not trying to be a savior, I'm just thinking about or fate and I don’t want to be sad about it". Elon Musk Destined to fly, to reach to mars In the shoulders of giants I'm standing to find that dreams don't die dreams won't die

Sam McDonald : Professor Tyson I think said Best. Elon is the best thing since Thomas Edison. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻

AntVenom : SpaceX, to everyone involved, thank you for doing what you're doing. The benefit of your actions stretch far beyond the call for humanity to become inter-planetary. You're inspiring an entire generation to think in bold new ways. You're not only pushing the boundaries of human exploration, but of human imagination as well. The effects of your efforts today will shine on for centuries. From one human being to another, to many others, and for many others, I thank you. We thank you.

Call sign: Goose : ULA, Boeing, Arianespace, Blue origin and Roscosmos disliked

M Arifin Dobson : This video deserves a place in the Youtube rewind. But...yea..anyway

CreeperBot 793 : 1968: I bet we’ll have flying cars in the future. 2018: We actually do have flying cars now

Carlos Rocha : none of this would be possible without the calculations of the Young Sheldon rsrs We'll wait for you in Brazil!

CaramelTV : My hope is to work at mission control at NASA. That is my dream job.

CNT FRESH MEMES : *Oh look earth really is round* *Flat earthers left the group*

amir farid : the rokcet pieces come back? mind blowing

Livinghighandwise : "Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun" Well to keep it real, all our cars are already in orbit around the sun...

SAW10 : 1:12 This is why i love SpaceX, they don't try to hide their errors and lie like other companies.... they are completely transparent, amazing video!

8ight 5ive : it made me cry with joy
