Spacecraft SEPARATION CONFIRMED.  MISSION SUCCESS for the first Block 5!

Offline ZachS09

T+33 minutes, 38 seconds. Payload deployment confirmed.

And an excellent view from the forward-facing camera on the second stage.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.
