Falcon Heavy – level 1

12-02-2018 07:00

SpaceX launches a new rocket. The launch is a test launch. The rocket’s name is Falcon Heavy.

Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in the world. It is twice as powerful as the second most powerful rocket.

The rocket has three boosters. Two side boosters come down safely. The middle booster is destroyed.

The rocket carries up a car. It is Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster.

Difficult words: launch (send up), powerful (strong), booster (the part of a rocket which carries something up and then flies back down), Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster (Elon Musk makes rockets and Tesla cars, the Tesla Roadster is an electric car).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
