SpaceX's Falcon Heavy has arrived at its launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center. Will Goodman, Managing Editor at Rockets are Cool, joins Cheddar to discuss what testing the Falcon Heavy will undergo before liftoff in January.
Goodman says the rocket should make it to space by early January, barring any major issues during the testing phase. As for what's on the docket for 2018, Goodman says SpaceX will continue to ramp up efforts for the BFR. He also believes it will add more Falcon 9 launches beyond the three it already has planned for January.
Now Elon Musk had promised to bring two private citizens to the moon in 2018, but will it actually happen? Goodman doesn't believe so, but he has high hopes for the aerospace community in general for the next year...including Blue Origin and Virgin Galatic.
