He Ain't Heavy, He's My Falcon

SpaceX released today the above computer animation of a Falcon Heavy launch from Kennedy Space Center's Pad 39A.

As with many of these animations, some of it is no doubt fanciful but it is a first look at the company's plans for KSC's iconic launch pad.

It also shows how SpaceX plans to use the Cape's Pad 13 for Falcon 9 booster landings. Elon Musk recently stated he thought the center core would continue down range to land on the autonomous drone ship, but this video shows it returning to the Cape.
