काठमाडौं । अमेरिकाले विश्वकै अहिलेसम्मकै सबैभन्दा शक्तिशाली रकेट प्रक्षेपण गरेको छ । अमेरिकाको फ्लोरिडामा रहेको केनेडी स्पेस सेन्टरमा रहेको स्पेस सेन्टरबाट रकेट ‘फाल्कन हेभी’ प्रक्षेपण गरिएको हो । 

अमेरिकी व्यवसायी इलोन मस्कको स्पेस एक्स कम्पनीले लन्च गरेको उक्त रकेटलाई अहिलेसम्मकै शक्तिशाली भनी दाबी गरिएको हो ।

स्पेक्स एक्सका सिइओका अनुसार पहिलो उडानमा ५० प्रतिशत मात्रै सफलता प्राप्त भए पनि अहिले भने सफलतापूर्वक प्रक्षेपण भएको छ । 

यो रकेटले लण्डनमा चल्ने पाँच वटा डबल डेकर बसको तौल बराबरको भार अन्तरिक्षमा लैजान सक्ने सञ्चारमाध्यमले जनाएका छन् । 

अर्थात् ६४ टनको क्षमता यो रकेटले बोक्नेछ । 

The Falcon Heavy successfully lifted off on Tuesday afternoon. It can be seen above soaring high over the Cape Canaveral site. 'You've heard the call out - vehicle is supersonic,' the announcer said, as the rocket soared through the sky to massive cheers from the crowd below

After leaving Earth, the Roadster and its passenger 'Starman' are now off to travel alone on a 250 million mile (400m km) journey into deep space, propelled by the main module, which separated from the Falcon Heavy shortly after launch. The dummy and the car can be seen above far above Earth following today's successful launch

After pushing back the launch time twice today due to wind speeds, the massive rocket launched at 3:45 p.m. ET, just before the launch window was set to close. Above, a view of the main module can be seen just after the side boosters split off 

The SpaceX team confirmed immediately after launch that the massive rocket was operating according to plan. Just minutes later, it prepared for its side boosters to split off from the central core, as seen above

In an incredible accomplishment, the Falcon Heavy's side boosters landed smoothly back down to Earth on two separate launchpads about 8 minutes in

 Elon Musk's Roadster and its solitary passenger, the mannequin 'Starman,' were seen soaring through the sky after the Falcon Heavy launched today. They're now on their way to Mars

Now that the rocket and its payload have successfully made it through the ascent – a critical stage in which Musk himself has admitted it risked blowing up – the SpaceX boss says the sports car ‘will be in deep space for a billion years.’ It's now on its way to Mars
