welcome back remind our of the top stories here on al-jazeera at least two people have been killed on one hundred forty four injured after a six point four magnitude quake struck eastern taiwan a number of buildings have collapsed in the city of wiley and. the u.n. has called for a month long truth in syria to get aid to civilians trapped by fighting at least sixty six people have been killed on choose day alone in a strikes on rebel held eastern groups. a place in kenya failed to release opposition politician begin to make guna despite a court order that he set free immediately he's been charged with treason for participating in a mock swearing in ceremony for position leader. now the new space
x. jumbo rocket is due to blast off for its first test flights in the next hour the falcon heavy is set to become the world's most powerful rockets in use with double the left of power of other ships judaize launch is to considered a key turning point for billionaire entrepreneur musk's privately owned space exploration technologies. the falcon heavy is propelled by twenty seven rocket engines giving it a thrust that's equal to eighteen boeing seven forty seven jets that means it can take incredibly heavy payloads of up to sixty three thousand kilos at second only to the rocket now so used for its missions its cost cutting reusable boosters also gives space x. an edge over other companies competing for lucrative contracts with nasa satellite companies the u.s. military and it's that kind of technology that must coax will eventually send
people to mars and build a colony there astrophysicist david clements is from london's imperial college and happily he joins me now live in the studio thanks very much for being with us on al-jazeera we're hearing there's a delay what's going on why why is that where they're not quite getting things together yet my understanding is that the key problem at the moment is whether you can build a ninety billion or ninety million dollar rocket but you're still subject to wind especially strong winds they are promised fair which is what the problem is at the moment they would put the rocket at risk as it goes through them and so keep the rocket safe make sure the launch goes well wait until they go why so we're all sat here twiddling our thumbs. now he's a billionaire so i suppose if it goes badly wrong it's not the end of the world but he seems to set the bar quite low saying as long as it doesn't sort of burst into smithereens when it first leaves the pad he'll see it as a success that does sound very loud well the first launch of
a new rocket first launch new the launch vehicle is always a risky time i've got very clear memories of the first launch of the ariane five rocket back in ninety five which just cleared the top of the tower then had to be blown up because it is gone seriously wrong and if you go back and look at the history of launch vehicles both on the u.s. and russian sides. early no inches of new. knowledge is that they have the most spectacular strange behaviors and failures so he's he's managing expectations quite well. the full can heavies based on technology that's already been proved so it's effectively several of several for kanaan. rocket strapped together so that will help with the reliability but it's a new it's a new structure it's obviously more powerful than anything that they've they've put up before so there's
a lot of complexity that goes into it well that we use for the life of richard branson flying amazing balloons around the world but is this unusual or is this indeed it is a part should we might be looking to to see individuals like ylem musk doing things we expect nasa to do well there's been a trend towards this since over the last twenty years with private venture capitalist or in masks case funded from his own dot com entrepreneurship going off and doing space projects partly because they're enthusiastic about it but also because they see that it's another area of business where destructive technologies could have a major impact and in them a lot of money very good to get your thoughts on this and we look forward to eventually happening some quietly very soon david clements thanks for joining us. the supreme court of the mall the fs has an old it so in order for the government to release a number of imprisoned opposition leaders this after the president accuses of
