SpaceX Falcon Heavy Test Flight

Watch in full screen & 1080p resolution

When Falcon Heavy lifts off in 2018, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)—a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel–Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9.

Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.

Throwback N64 of Rare video games

A few videos of some older Nintendo 64 video games.   Rare is one of the better know game developers for the Nintendo 64, they are most well know for GoldenEye 007.

I have played most of these games, Perfect Dark was one of the few games for the Nintendo 64 that required the Expansion Pack to be able to play the video game.
