SpaceX made the first commercial launch of Falcon Heavy and at the same time planted 3 rocket stage

The company Elon Musk carried out another historical launch of the super-heavy launch vehicle Falcon Heavy, which performed the first commercial mission. SpaceX had to get a satellite of Saudi Arabia Arabsat-6A with a mass of 6 thousand kg on geosynchronous transfer orbit.

The team of the aerospace company planned to carry out almost simultaneous landing 3 rocket stages. B the last mission, the Falcon Heavy has managed to recover only 2 side of the accelerator, having lost the Central block of the launch vehicle. However, this time the company was a complete success.

Falcon Heavy started from Cape Canaveral on Thursday evening, April 11. The historical mission of the super-heavy rocket was a kind of gift for Russia and Belarus from Elon Musk, because at the time of launch there has already come April 12. Cosmonautics Day is celebrated here on Friday. The carrier rocket coped with its task without any problems, successfully passing all stages of the mission.
