SpaceX Is Preparing To Launch A Much Larger Rocket For The First Time In November

SpaceX is preparing to launch a much larger rocket for the first time in November. The company's Falcon Heavy is "the most powerful operational rocket in the
world by a factor or two," says CEO Elon Musk. It'll be capable of bringing larger payloads to space.
Musk recently posted an animation showing how the rocket may appear when it lifts off. In the caption, he mentioned the November launch date SpaceX is planning on.
The Falcon Heavy is 230-feet tall and its first stage is made of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores. Those cores will "together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at lift-off, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft."
SpaceX also says the more powerful rocket could be used for Mars missions.
