SpaceX claims it has the most powerful rocket in the world and will soon launch it.The company’s vehicle called Falcon Heavy has finally faced a test on Monday at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The rocket fired up its engines for about 10 seconds while keeping the rocket securely attached to a launch pad. The exercise, known as a static test fire, is designed to test the Heavy engine’s health, and collect data on its flight future readiness.
The test fire shows massive plumes of smoke swallowing the launch site while the engines give off a deafening noise.
The test fire “was good,” and SpaceX will be “launching in a week or so.” SpaceX is the only rocket maker in the world that lands boosters after orbital launches.
