Today’s SpaceX launch was spectacular, making the Falcon Heavy the most powerful rocket in the world and wowing us with the synchronized landings of the side boosters.

To send really big rockets into space, you need equally enormous buildings to construct them in. Enter SpaceX’s new hangar, under construction right next to the pad that used to send Apollo missions to the Moon.
Despite the 80s hard rock soundtrack—or maybe because of it—SpaceX's new 3D animation showing their future Falcon Heavy in action, complete with the landing of three of its stages back on Earth, is freaking cool.
