Explore Mars, Inc. congratulates SpaceX on the successful inaugural launch of its Falcon Heavy launch vehicle earlier today. After years of development, the debut of the Falcon Heavy provides the United States with a new, heavy lift capacity that could help to open the solar system to exploration and development.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment by the SpaceX team and a great day for space exploration,” commented Explore Mars CEO Chris Carberry. “With this launch and other heavy lift vehicles slated to be launched in the upcoming years, we are truly on the verge the golden age of space exploration.”
SpaceX has announced bold plans to send people to the planet Mars in the 2020s. Today’s successful launch of the Falcon Heavy is yet another step forward on that journey. Explore Mars wishes SpaceX every success in its efforts.
