  • Elon Musk attends the SpaceX Commerical Launch Facility

SpaceX confirmed Wednesday its CEO Elon Musk plans to blast his cherry red electric auto off toward the Red Planet when the company's Falcon Heavy rocket launches for the first time next month.

Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp will fly its next mission from the Florida complex damaged in a September 2016 blast involving one of its rockets, signaling the site is back in operation and paving the way for a faster launch cadence.

"Destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn't blow up on ascent".

Touted as the "world's most powerful rocket", the Falcon Heavy is created to one day carry crew and supplies to deep space destinations such as the Moon and Mars.

It can propel 54,000kg (54 metric tons) - the weight of a loaded Boeing 737 jet - into orbit. Now that the pad is fixed, SpaceX can resume launching its smaller Falcon 9 there while preparing Pad 39A for the upcoming maiden flight of its larger Falcon Heavy rocket.

SpaceX says it will cost a third of what it costs to launch the Delta IV.

The SpaceX chief executive said when the company's Falcon Heavy rocket launches in January, the "payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster".

Musk has made it clear his No. 1 goal in creating a commercial space company is to send humans to Mars.

"Just bear in mind that there is a good chance this monster rocket blows up, so I wouldn't put anything of irreplaceable sentimental value on it", he was quoted as saying.
