Elon Musk's SpaceX completes 'most difficult launch ever' of rocket carrying 24 satellites

The Chief Executive Officer of SpaceX, Elon Musk stated that the most difficult launch is finally completed by Falcon Heavy Rocket that carried around 24 research satellites. The launch was done from the Kennedy Space Centre of NASA in Florida. This mission is being said to be the most difficult launch made by SpaceX in the company’s history.

This mission involves launching the satellites in three different orbits that will certainly require multiple firings to be done by the rocket engine. Also, for the completion of the mission, several hours shall be needed.

SpaceX is planning to retrieve the first-stage core boosters from Falcon heavy that could be further used up in other launching missions. While two of the boosters were retrieved at Cape Canaveral after several minutes of the Falcon Heavy being launched, the third core booster wasn’t received. According to Elon, this incident wasn’t really unexpected comparing with the degree of the mission that just took place.

The mission made by SpaceX was a huge step to collect data in order to certify Falcon Heavy. Also, the rocket is carrying clean and green fuel, a solar sail, a deep space atomic clock, and human ashes.
