On February 7, 2018, the US space exploration company "Falcon Heavy" carrier rocket was launched, and two boosters were successfully recovered in the lander area for the first time. The Falcon Heavy Rocket is 69.2 meters high, 1420.8 tons in weight, 63.8 tons in low earth orbit, 26.7 tons in geosynchronous orbit, and 16.8 tons in Mars orbit. The total thrust provided by all engines in the initial stage of launch exceeds 5 million pounds, making it the largest launch vehicle in active service worldwide. The rocket is designed with a parallel core stage structure, with a structural strength redundancy of 40%. The first stage of the rocket can be recycled, greatly reducing the operating cost, and providing a more cost-effective and efficient vehicle for human beings to enter deep space.
