SpaceX’s first Falcon Heavy rocket with a commercial payload on board blasted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 6:35 p.m. EDT (2235 GMT) on April 11, 2019. The flight came more than a year after the rocket’s first demonstration mission, which launched founder and CEO Elon Musk’s cherry-red Tesla and a dummy named Starman into orbit around the sun.
