Falcon Heavy – history in the making

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy — according to SpaceX “the most powerful operational rocket in the world” — successfully launched today, Feb. 6, 2018.  This summer, the Falcon Heavy may be used to launch the Planetary Society’s LightSail 2.  In 2019, Falcon Heavy might also launch the first lunar tourists.  This is the stuff of science fiction, but it’s happening!  The launch is about 29:40 in the video.
