According to Elon Musk, the private space company is planning to launch the rocket for the first time on Tuesday, February 6th from Cape Kennedy in Florida.
A special rocket, one of the most powerful the world has ever seen, requires a special launchpad.
The Falcon Heavy will launch from launchpad 39A, which once launched Apollo and Space Shuttle missions, and will be a sight to behold.
Musk guarantees, “Easy viewing from the public causeway.”
