Tercer lanzamiento exitoso del SpaceX Falcon Heavy

Cabo Cañaveral, FL – El martes, 25 de junio de 2019, a las 2:30 am, SpaceX lanzó con éxito su cohete Falcon Heavy con veinticuatro satélites desde el Centro Espacial Kennedy de la Florida. El Falcon Heavy es el cohete operacional más poderoso. Su primera etapa está compuesta por tres núcleos de nueve motores Falcon 9 cuyos 27 motores Merlin juntos generan más de 5 millones de libras de empuje en el despegue, lo que equivale a aproximadamente dieciocho aviones 747. El Departamento de Defensa ordenó la misión y se convirtió en el tercer vuelo exitoso de Falcon Heavy.
El jefe de SpaceX, Elon Musk, dijo el martes que este es el “lanzamiento de cohetes más difícil de la compañía”. Los dos refuerzos laterales aterrizaron con éxito en las plataformas de aterrizaje ubicadas en el Centro Espacial Kennedy, pero el impulsor del núcleo central simplemente se saltó la plataforma de aterrizaje y se estrelló contra el océano en lugar de aterrizar. El próximo lanzamiento de Falcon Heavy está programado para 2020.


SpaceX Falcon Heavy third successful launch 

Cape Canaveral, FL – On Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at 2:30 am SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon Heavy rocket carrying twenty-four satellites from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket. Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. The Department of Defense ordered the mission and it became the third successful Falcon Heavy flight.
SpaceX chief Elon Musk said on Tuesday, this is the company’s “toughest rocket launches ever.” The two side boosters landed successfully on the landing pads located at Kennedy Space Center, but the central core booster just missed the landing deck and crashed into the ocean instead. The next Falcon Heavy launch is scheduled for 2020.
