Tehran (KNA) - This time it's not a cold-war battle between nations, but a commercial contest between private companies.

And the stakes are about to be raised further with the launch of the Falcon Heavy, the biggest rocket since the mammoth Saturn V that took astronauts to the moon.For the space industry it's a game-changer.The maiden flight has all the panache you'd expect from SpaceX and its founder, Tesla boss Elon Musk.On board is an red electric roadster, complete with a mannequin called Starman in the driver's seat, which will be sent on a trajectory that puts it in orbit around the sun.
