The launch date of SpaceX's latest "Falcon Heavy" rocket has been delayed.

Musk tweeted Friday night that the Falcon Heavy's first test will have his midnight cherry Tesla Roadster on-board.

This SpaceX launch slated for January will be noteworthy for reasons that go beyond the payload, a cherry-red Tesla Roadster owned by Musk.SAN FRANCISCO: Elon Musk fully intends to put a red sports auto made by a company that he runs into an enormous rocketship made by another company that he runs and then fire both into Mars orbit. "Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent", Musk added.

He now leads the nation in passing efficiency rating, completion percentage, yards per pass and multiple other categories. He is also the first player to ever throw for at least 3,000 yards and rush for at least 1,000 in consecutive seasons.

While a Falcon 9 has nine Merlin engines, a Falcon Heavy has 27.

Musk, while speaking at the International Astronautical Congress a while back said that he is planning to pour all of SpaceX's resources into an even bigger rocket architecture known as the Interplanetary Transport System that can even plant a colony on Mars. "Will have double thrust of next largest rocket". It's a more powerful rocket that the company hopes to use for missions to the Moon and Mars.

It will launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Elon Musk, founder and CEO of the spaceflight company, said the rocket will launch in January from the Apollo 11 pad at Cape Canaveral. The first test, which will precede the attempt to fire a Tesla Roadster into Mars orbit, will be a "static fire" in which all of the engines are activated at once. "Guaranteed to be exciting, one way or another".

SpaceX also plans to be able to recover all three rocket cores that power the "Falcon Heavy", just like it has done over the past year with main rocket booster stage of its "Falcon 9" rockets, according to The Verge.

The company eventually wants to create a self-sustaining city on the red planet.
