SpaceX releases video showcasing new Falcon Heavy rocket

Press play for lift off

Space exploration company, SpaceX, has released a new video showcasing the landing capabilities and design of its new Falcon Heavy rocket, which is set to blast off later this year...

SpaceX is going full-throttle at the moment, with the recent news of the $1 billion investment from Google and now the unveiling of the new Flacon Heavy rocket set to launch sometime this year. 

The space travel innovator has now released a video showcasing the capabilities of the new rocket, which looks to correct the unsuccessful landings of its predecessor the Falcon 9. SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, asserts the Falcon Heavy will carry the largest payload to escape velocity since the Saturn V moon rocket, opening a world of capabilities for government and enterprise space missions. The video demonstrates how these landing capabilities will function and reveals the design of the next generation rocket.
