According to a report by Digital Trends, on Wednesday, the world's most powerful rocket in operation, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, is scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, in what will be its first ever commercial mission. The launch will reportedly be livestreamed on SpaceX's YouTube channel. DigitalTrends reports that this will be the Falcon Heavy's second flight following a maiden voyage 13 months, early in 2018. That first launch famously carried the Tesla Roadster belonging to SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk out of Earth's atmosphere and into space. SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy reportedly tips the scale at a hefty 54 metric tons and generates over 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff.
