This is one of the absolute best places to see a Falcon Heavy rocket launch and land.
Mr Musk shared photos of the landing on Twitter, saying: "The Falcons have landed". On Feb. 6, 2018, the rocket carried a red Tesla Roadster into space in a demonstration of the rocket's capability in order to get more orders.
No word on whether SpaceX caught or attempted to catch the fairings that covered the payload during launch - we may hear about this later, depending on whether it's a success or not. During the heavy-lift rocket's debut launch previous year, the first attempt to recover the center core failed.
The Falcon Heavy is created to loft into low-Earth orbit up to 140,000 pounds - more than any American rocket has been able to carry since NASA's Saturn V, which took Apollo astronauts to the moon in the 1960s and '70s.
SpaceX will be launching its second Falcon Heavy rocket carrying the Arabsat-6A communications satellite to orbit. Falcon Heavy only has five missions on its manifest so far. When Arabsat announced the contracts in 2015, it said at the time that it planned to launch the Arabsat 6A satellite aboard Falcon Heavy.
SpaceX and Boeing Co are vying to send humans to space from US soil for the first time in almost a decade under NASA's Commercial Crew Program.
Musk threw his own convertible into space a year ago, which is reportedly in a solar orbit around Mars.it happens to still be the same regardless of some less shine and a loss of a few chips here and there.
The Roadster could still look much the same as it did for the February 6, 2018, launch, just not as shiny with perhaps some chips and flakes from the extreme temperature swings, according to Giorgini.
SpaceX typically launches Falcon 9 rockets.
Until SpaceX came along, boosters were discarded in the ocean after satellite launches.
