Incredible video shows how Space X plans to land largest rocket in the worldElon Musk's Space X released a new video this week demonstrating just what it plans to do with its upcoming Falcon Heavy rocket, which is set to launch for the first time later this year. When it flies later this year, the Falcon Heavy will be the world's most powerful rocket. Only the Saturn V rocket, which was retired in 1973 after sending Apollo missions to the moon, was more powerful.
