SpaceX has officially launched the Falcon Heavy. This is the world's most powerful rocket and the launch captivated many around the world.

John Timmer is a Science Writer for Ars Technica. He joins Cheddar to discuss how monumental this launch was for SpaceX.

Not only did the rocket take off despite delays and doubt from experts, the launch was executed very closely to the plan. The two side boosters successfully separated from the main-stage rocket and now "Starman" and his Tesla are orbiting around in space.
