Less than a week earlier, though, a January 31 SpaceXlaunch had some media speculating about the fate of a Falcon 9 booster that survived a landing in the Atlantic Ocean in one piece - an "amazing" feat, Musk tweeted.
The mission comprised the first test of the huge rocket, powered by 27 engines in three first-stage boosters strapped together. I want to also applaud Musk's ability to capture the public's attention and imagination.
The head of SpaceX compared the Falcon Heavy architecture with modern computer systems used by Google or Amazon, in which the failure of one device does not affect the performance of the whole system.
On Tuesday, SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral.
"The Falcon Heavy will likely be the first of several vehicles that gets the United States back into manned spaceflight", explained Carpenter.
SpaceX - and the space community in general - is notoriously loose with deadlines.

Crew Dragon will launch on a Falcon 9, the rocket SpaceX has flown since 2010.
But Musk said Tuesday that he's planning to hit NASA's latest target of launching astronauts on Crew Dragon by December. Because the Falcon 9 is designed in such a way that when it starts let the failure of two of the nine Merlin 1D, Falcon Heavy with 27 power units at the first stage should continue to work even after disabling six of them.
Musk said the rocket - which is more than twice as powerful as any other rocket on the market - is ready to launch whatever SpaceX clients can dream up.
If the Falcon Heavy is big, the Big Falcon Rocket promises to be huge.
Others believe that the rocket's boosters, two of which reentered the Earth's atmosphere and landed safely, were responsible.
"I think the new architecture, the BFR architecture, is the way to go", he said.
