The most potent operational rocket in the world, the Falcon Heavy from Space X, is at last making a comeback to the skies.
The rocket was launched for a special mission early on November 1 from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the aerospace business reported this week.
The rocket's first launch since 2018 was this one. The Falcon has participated in two additional missions: one to deploy some experimental satellites for the US Department of Defense
and another to bring a television and phone service satellite into orbit for the Saudi business Arabsat.
Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, launched his own Tesla Roadster as a test payload, and the car is still in orbit.
The USSF-44 mission was a covert launch of satellites by the Falcon on behalf of the US military's Space Systems Command's Innovation and Prototyping Delta.
