World’s most powerful rocket


    Just announced, SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket. This is a beast of a launch vehicle. Launch price is $80 million to $125 million, but “Modest discounts are available for contractually committed, multi-launch purchases.” From SpaceX:

    With the ability to carry satellites or interplanetary spacecraft weighing over 53 metric tons (117,000 lb) to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Falcon Heavy can lift nearly twice the payload of the next closest vehicle, the US Space Shuttle, and more than twice the payload of the Delta IV Heavy.
