SpaceX to launch its 1st Falcon Heavy rocket in November; Open for public viewing

NASA's Kennedy Space Center announced that the Falcon Heavy rocket by SpaceX will be launched in this November

Elon Musk's space company SpaceX will launch its much-anticipated Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time this November. However, the company has not made the exact dates available.

The information, first seen on a data page of NASA's Kennedy Space Centre, was opened for the users who were interested in attending this inaugural launch and flight. "Currently, this launch is targeted for no earlier than (NET) November 2017, with a date and time TBD," said NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The viewing time will have to be approved by both, USAF (US Air Force) and NASA.

The public can witness this historic moment by purchasing tickets. However, other live streaming options will also be available for those who prefer to watch online live.

The data page, of NASA's Kennedy Space Centre further, reads: "The most powerful rocket this generation has ever seen, SpaceX's new Falcon Heavy rocket, launches no earlier than this November. Kennedy Space Centre's historic launch pad 39A has not supported this much thrust since the last Saturn V rocket nearly 45 years ago."

The authority at NASA has also made some changes and integrated a few advancements to the launch pad for the launch of Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy Rocket launches.

SpaceX had posted on its Instagram handle, "Falcon Heavy's three first stage cores have all completed testing at our rocket development facility in McGregor, Texas. This side booster previously launched SpaceX's ninth resupply mission to the @ISS."

In January, on its official YouTube channel, SpaceX had posted an animated video of the upcoming launch, featuring the complete launch procedure along with the initial phases of the recovery of the rockets.
