Don't know if anyone is interested, but a few details about the falcon heavy which I thought worth a read

I had little to no interest in space during school etc, but reading about (and watching the progression of) SpaceX is fascinating

Glad someone finds it interesting

They've done a static fire text, here's the official video

But I like this one more, it's further away so has better perspective and really gives an impression of the power when the sound wave hits - I wish I could go there to watch the first launch directly

The world’s most expensive bird scarer 😁
Apparently you can get a phone app called spacexnow, but I’ve not had chance to look at it yet.
It is certainly an impressive sight, and that’s only the test!

They've set a date - of course it could be delayed but fingers crossedImage
