American SpaceX from the site 39A of the Kennedy Space Center (USA) conducted the third launch of the super-heavy Falcon Heavy rocket, according to the company's Twitter.

After launching a pair of side accelerators successfully made a soft vertical landing.

According to SpaceX CEO Ilona Mask, this mission is “the most difficult launch of the company”.

In the same month, it was reported that the central unit, the upper stage and the fairing of the launched rocket were recently manufactured by SpaceX, while a pair of side accelerators (B1052 and B1053) were used in the second launch of the extra heavy rocket.
