SpaceX. The Falcon Heavy is the"most powerful rocket in the world by a factor of two" SpaceX

SpaceX will launch ‘most powerful rocket in the world’ this month and with a Tesla on board

SpaceX also plans to attempt a world first with the launch of Falcon Heavy - the company will attempt to simultaneously land and recover all three of its first-stage rocket cores.

After a almost two-month delay, the rocket is set to blast off sometime during a two-hour launch window, which opens at 8 p.m.

The spokesperson also said that Zuma is heading to low-Earth orbit.

What's particularly mysterious about Zuma is that spy satellites are usually claimed by the military agency that oversees them, known as the National Reconnoissance Office.

This will be SpaceX's first launch of 2018.

The new nine-engine rocket will launch from pad 39A and will take the secret payload to a low orbit.

She said Sessions' directive "simply gives prosecutors the tools to take on large-scale distributors and enforce federal law". In some states, recreational marijuana use has been legal for five years, and those states are vowing to fight this new memo.

These landings are part of SpaceX's effort to develop fully reusable rockets and spacecraft - technology that company founder and CEO Elon Musk has said will slash the cost of spaceflight.

It carries the Zuma spacecraft, which has had repeated launch delays since November.

SpaceX on Sunday night picked up where it left off in 2017, its best year yet with 18 launches and no failures.

It is a big month for Musk's space exploration company.

Both of those will launch on used Falcon 9 boosters, as SpaceX continues to re-fly rockets it has landed on previous missions.

It will be carrying a secret payload for the US government, code-named Zuma. The Wing could potentially support more than 30 launches.
