The video shows, with elegant editing, the Florida crowds lined up to witness the launch, the preparation of the three massive engines and the rocket's fiery ascent.

Additionally, SpaceX has released this new video of the launch, which includes some never-before-seen footage of the Roadster being prepped for its journey into space.

"There are a lot of awful things happening all over the world, all of the time", Musk said, referring to the launch of Falcon Heavy.

Falcon Heavy is capable of lifting more than 141,000 lb which means more than a regular Boeing jetliner when it is full of passengers, hundreds of pieces of luggage, and has its tanks overfilled.

The Falcon Heavy is SpaceX's most powerful rocket, and is created to take payloads to deep space, such as a future Mars mission.

About a month ago, SpaceX made history when it launched the Falcon Heavy rocket into space. On the other hand, the main booster, which was set to land on a barge in the middle of the ocean, closely missed its landing site and plunged into the water.

SpaceX (Private:SPACE) CEO Elon Musk said during a talk at SXSW that he thinks the company will start testing the rocket and booster being built for Mars trips during the first half of next year.

The Musk's Tesla will fly in space at a maximum speed of 7 miles per second and will get at 250 miles away from the Earth.

Nolan, in comments reported by The Verge, said he produced the video in part to inspire the public in the way he was inspired by Saturn rocket launches.
