  • SpaceX Falcon Heavy to launch ashes of an all-star, astronaut and others

SpaceX is set to carry two dozen satellites into space Monday night aboard a Falcon Heavy rocket and spread them across the sky in a marathon mission that Chief Executive Elon Musk has described as the company's "most hard launch ever".

The remains of 152 people are on board the upcoming Falcon Heavy launch.

. Central Floridians could hear multiple sonic booms.

SpaceX's heavy-lift rocket will send two dozen satellites to space for the Department of Defense.

A company called Celestis arranged the memorial space flight and it charges upwards of $US 2,495 to fly 1 gram of cremated remains into orbit aboard Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy - the world's most powerful rocket.

The launch window opens at 11:30 p.m. ET from pad 39A at Florida's Kennedy Space Center.

Air Canada passenger Tiffani Adams says she was abandoned on "freezing" plane
She used the flashlight to signal for help, and eventually someone driving a luggage cart noticed her and alerted authorities. Air Canada confirmed that a passenger had been left on the plane and it was investigating how this could have happened.

It's a test mission to certify the rocket to carry national security payloads.

Believe it or not, this isn't the first time that Celestis has sent human remains into space - in fact, it's not even close. One of the payloads is a new space-based atomic clock prototype. Residents along the coast could hear multiple sonic booms.

Also on the Heritage Flight is Masaru Tomita, who was a two-time all star player in Japan's Nippon Pro Baseball league, and Marj Kreuger, who worked for NASA in the 1960s and published both science fiction and technical science papers, including one about the use of nuclear power in space.

If successful, it could bolster SpaceX's case to win more Air Force contracts to launch sensitive military satellites.
