Tourist Snaps Sneak Peek of SpaceX Falcon Heavy Payload Fairing in Florida

A propitious caller to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center snapped a print of a cargo enclosure for SpaceX’s new megarocket, a Falcon Heavy.

Twitter user Emiliano C. Diaz de Leon was on a debate train during a NASA core when he photographed a Falcon Heavy cargo fairing being changed inside a building, Inverse has reported. The enclosure will lay atop a Falcon Heavy on a rocket’s lass flight, that is scheduled to take place someday in January.

Last week, SpaceX’s owner and CEO Elon Musk posted pictures on Twitter that uncover his midnight cherry Tesla Roadster being installed into a fairing. He also pronounced on Twitter that a cargo will be shot into a Mars orbit, though a association has not suggested additional sum about a payload’s trajectory.
