Falcon Heavy will be orbited in a week’s time


According to the post of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Twitter, the first firing of Falcon Heavy is scheduled for February 6 from a rocket launch site Pad 39A at the John F. Kennedy Space Center. The message appeared three days after the statistical burning. According to Elon Musk, all the tests were successful.

By the way, he didn’t specify the launch date but a web portal Spacenews reports that SpaceX representatives have made a reservation request for a 3-4-hour launch window at 13:30 (EST). In case of any unexpected factors, February 7 will be an alternative date.

Since this will be a rocket test launch, the absence of payload would increase the time of launch window opening. However, payload is an indispensable thing: Elon is ready to use a Tesla electric roadster for its imitation.

According to Elon Musk, a test launch cannot guarantee brilliant results.
