SpaceX on Wednesday test-fired its Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time in a launch pad experiment aimed at giving its main engines a trial workout before blasting off in the coming days.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musktweeted the target date on Saturday, adding that there will be plenty of viewing opportunity for the public from the nearby causeway. "Launching in a week or so". It's called the BFR, or Big Falcon Rocket, an eight stories tall, re-usable 42-engine rocket that will replace both Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launch vehicles, as well as the Dragon spacecraft.

The rocket fired all 27 engines for Wednesday's test. That's three times as many engines as are on SpaceX's current workhorse rocket, the Falcon 9.
