SpaceX CEO Elon Musk recently announced on Twitter that the Spacex Heavy will launch his red Tesla roadster and target reaching Mars.

If schedules hold, SpaceX will launch a two-person crew in August on a Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft from KSC's famous launch pad 39A, a feat not seen since space shuttle Atlantis blasted off from there with astronauts in July 2011. Boeing intends on putting a pair of humans into space with its Starliner capsule in November and will get a boost on ULA's Atlas V rocket from the Cape's Launch Complex 41.
