SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy launches its first real payload

Space Exploration Technologies Corp.’s Falcon Heavy blasted off Thursday with a high-capacity telecommunications satellite payload, then landed all three boosters safely.

It was the second lift-off for Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket. The launch had to be postponed on Wednesday due to unfavorable winds higher in the atmosphere.

Falcon Heavy’s first flight was a demo flight in February 2018 with its famous dummy payload: A Tesla Inc. TSLA, -2.77% bright-red Roadster and a spacesuit-clad dummy named “Starman,” after the David Bowie song, behind the wheel.

The Roadster, an original model, belonged to Elon Musk’s personal collection.
