Falcon Heavy


SpaceX just had a successful launch of it's 'Falcon Heavy' rocket along with the 150 and '51st recovery of the side boosters.

"Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb) Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy. Falcon Heavy is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft." https://www.spacex.com/vehicles/falcon-heavy/

Falcon Heavy dethroned as "the most powerful operational rocket in the world" but, for how long?

Is it possible for you to quote tweet text without duplicating every line? I find it kind of annoying to read.

I am guessing the location was chosen because you basically have the same environment as Florida, launching over water into the Gulf of Mexico and the similar rotational speed of the Earth.
