[NYTimes] Falcon Heavy, SpaceX’s Giant Rocket, Launches Into Orbit, and Sticks Its Landings

Quote:
It was only the second flight for what is the most powerful rocket now available on Earth, improving on its spectacular test launch in 2018.

Shortly after the launch, the rocket’s three boosters returned to Earth. Two touched down seconds apart at landing pads at Cape Canaveral, not far from the launchpad. The center booster, which went higher and farther, set down on a floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/11/s...ch-spacex.html


Side Boosters Landing: 27 min mark
Main Booster Landing: 30 min mark

Alternative title: Vaporware company does something it is not supposed to.

Now seriously, the landing of both side boosters is a sight to behold.

Wait, they launched a payload and successfully retrieved all three boosters? I thought for sure they'd lose one to Murphy, that's amazing.

It is what it is.

Also, these were new block 5 rockets. The first heavy mission was not block 5 rockets.

Dang. Was hoping it would get delayed again. I'm heading down there tonight, could have seen the launch then...

I really enjoyed that, thanks for the link. Totally amazing stuff and high class engineering. Watching the first two boosters land was so perfect it looked like a take off video was being run in reverse.

The only thing they didn't explain (or I missed it) was what happened to the unit that released the satellite?

I shall follow with interest in the future, it's very impressive.

Wow, super impressive. Im very excited that we(humans) are starting to reach for the stars again. There were a few dark decades where very little happened. One event a year or so. The tempo feels to have picked up considerably.

The third booster lands on a barge in the ocean. The rest of the stages go into other orbits of varying stability.
