WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF
The Falcon Heavy will be one of largest rockets ever built and one day it could be the spacecraft that makes Humanity an interplanetary species.
Elon Musk has been tweeting again and this time he’s telling everyone that the highly anticipated Falcon Heavy launch, the wanna be reusable heavy lift rocket that will carry the first space tourists to the Moon in 2018, and be the spacecraft that Musk will eventually uses to help humanity become an interplanetary species that colonises Mars from 2022 onwards, will launch in just a few months.
All Falcon Heavy cores should be at the Cape in two to three months, so launch should happen a month after that
