Elon Musk said when they will launch super-heavy rockets

SpaceX Falcon Heavy test launch delayed until early 2018

Musk began by revealing details of the first Falcon Heavy launch, which is scheduled to take place next month, "from Apollo 11 pad at the Cape". CEO Elon Musk said that he will send personal Tesla Roadster as the payload.

SpaceX successfully completed a "static fire test" of the "world's most powerful" rocket back in May.

SpaceX earlier posted an animation detailing the capabilities of the huge new booster, which Musk boasts has twice the thrust of the next largest rocket.

Musk says that the first Falcon Heavy's payload will be his midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity song in it.

It has said that reused rockets will be a part of the maiden launch of the Falcon Heavy, which is essentially three Falcon 9 rockets, the company's current workhorse, strapped together.

As stated in the above tweets, it seems that the Falcon Heavy is to be launched with the intention of reaching Mars orbit - provided there are no hiccups with the launch. "Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent", he added.

Falcon Heavy is the sequel to SpaceX's Falcon 9. The stronger force the Falcon Heavy will allow the company to perform missions beyond the low orbit area of Earth.

The first flight of the Falcon Heavy is expected to launch in January of 2018, a bit of a delay from its initial 2013 launch date.

The rocket will be capable of lifting more than 54 metric tons, which is equal to a 737 jetliner full of fuel, luggage, crew, and passengers.

He wants to land at least two of the spacecraft on Mars in 2022 carrying equipment - and then ones transporting people in 2024. It will carry out missions like making 30-minute transcontinental travel possible on Earth and helping to build a colony on Mars. Not that the first humans on Mars will be able to drive it.
