While the company has yet to announce a definitive launch date, SpaceX took to social media Tuesday night to show off its massive Falcon Heavy rocket on its launchpad at Cape Canaveral.

“With more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff – equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft at full power – Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two,” the company said.

The heavy-duty rocket, which stands 230 feet, is undergoing its long preflight checklist before a static fire exercise, which tests if the rocket’s engines are working properly.

Following the static firing, SpaceX will choose a target date for the test launch, at which point the Falcon Heavy will fire into space, propelling Elon Musk’s cherry red Tesla roadster into Mars orbit.

You read that right.

The billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla announced in late 2017 that Falcon Heavy’s first payload will be his person roadster. Add to that, Musk said the vehicle will be blasting “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.

Musk noted his electric sports car “will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn’t blow up on ascent.”

If the test launch goes well, the rocket’s three boosters will land back on Earth for potential re-use.
