Yesterday, SpaceX stuck their uber-rocket Falcon Heavy on pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and turned it on! They had some massive clamps on it to make sure it didn't go anywhere, but I can happily report that it did not blow up. Here's one of the many videos:
This means we're getting close to launch, folks! Word is that they'll send the rocket (carrying a Tesla Roadster) up into space in a week or so. So given the many delays we've seen already, it shouldn't surprise us if that happens in a month or so. But in any case, one more thing checked off the to-do list!
