SpaceX has apparently completed its static fire test of the first stage of its Falcon Heavy rocket.
You can see the test here, with the static fire beginning at about 37:00 minutes. From the video it is difficult to judge exactly how long the rocket fired, but it might have been longer than predicted. What is important is that all appeared to function as planned.
