SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket drove off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, yesterday afternoon and rose to space, taking its payload — Elon Musk CEO’s red Tesla Roadster — into an area that extends into the asteroid belt. The Falcon Heavy’s leading flight is eventually over, and despite a fudged arrival in the ocean, the rocket has confirmed its prowess and is expected to be available to start missions for clients.
SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon Heavy rocket and the live video of the incident was the second greatest in YouTube’s history. The incident spread over 2.3 million mutual views on YouTube, getting in second to the Red Bull Stratos jump, which racked in an absurd 8 million collective views back in 2012.

The brand isn’t done with live videos for the day either. You can still see the dummy in SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster, which is connected to the Falcon Heavy’s upper frame, create its way approaching its ultimate orbit around Mars.
