In anticipation of the first SpaceX launch of the Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket ship in the world to date, SpaceX founder Elon Musk has shared on Instagram an animation clip of what he hopes will be the successful launch of the spacecraft. In the video, we see the spaceship lift off, followed by the two booster rocket separations and their return to Earth in controlled landings.

Check out the animation below and let us know what you think.
