Re: Timeline milestones for a BFR Cargo landing on Mars in 2022.

SpaceNut-
I believe all 3 of the soon-to-be-flown Falcon Heavy cores are already at the Cape, and will be test fired there. I don't know if they will do a test fire of all 3 stages at once, though. I believe the plan was to fire them individually? I may be wrong about this, and hoping anyone else with better information will correct me.

They were test fired individually in Texas because there is no stand where all three can be fired together. The plan is to set them up on the launch pad and test fire them together later this month.
