In the interim, though, the inaugural payload of the Falcon Heavy was Elon Musk's very own Tesla Roadster, comically "driven" by a mannequin dubbed Starman. In fact, Falcon Heavy is 2 times more powerful than the previous most powerful rocket.

Musk was asked, why?

A few weeks removed from launch, Starman and his trusty Roadster are still orbiting in outer space.

Musk went on to post the video in two parts on his Instagram, while also commented on Twitter that "Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another".

The rocket meant to make this voyage isn't the Falcon 9 or even the Falcon Heavy rocket, but a newer model that SpaceX is still putting together called the BFR - officially short for "Big Falcon Rocket", but since the name was partly inspired by Doom's BFG weapon, it's probably not unintentional if you first saw that acronym a different way. We did for you.

Elon Musk announced Sunday plans for his Mars spaceship to be ready for trips to the red planet by early-to-mid 2019, according to news reports. He went on to share that he got to watch the Falcon Heavy launch alongside Musk in launch control, and that he was in awe of the incredible achievement made possible by the contribution of so many people.

Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.

The Falcon Heavy will ultimately be used to launch extremely heavy satellites into orbit and - assuming that colonizing Mars ever becomes a reality - carry thousands of pounds of cargo. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.
