SpaceX's Second Falcon Heavy Primed For Weekend Launch On Arabsat 6A Commercial Mission
We'll keep an eye on both these big rockets, and we'll also let you know how to watch next week's Falcon Heavy launch, which could be followed by the first-ever landing of three Falcon rockets.
There's still no official word from SpaceX or Elon Musk, but a source at NASA tells FOX 35 the static fire test for the Falcon Heavy has been scrapped, at least for Thursday night.Space fans set up shop in Canaveral National Seashore Thursday afternoon hoping for the ideal shot of the static test fire for the Falcon Heavy rocket.
He was here when the Falcon Heavy had its first test launch past year in February, and he was looking forward to seeing its static test fire Thursday, set to last several seconds sometime between 6 p.m. and midnight. The Falcon Heavy rocket is now set to launch on April 7th, but some fear that its launch will be delayed.
SpaceX completed a static fire of the massive rocket today ahead of lift-off next week, which is now planned for April 9.
Falcon Heavy will be even more powerful this time around, with a maximum thrust of 2,550 tons, according to Musk - or about 10 percent higher than last year's demo.
'Arabsat-6A is part of the two-satellite Arabsat-6G program for Arabsat'.
Arabsat 6A is a communications satellite for the Riyahd, Saudi Arabia-based company of the same name. The standard Falcon 9 boosters have had multiple successful landings at this point, and they are expected to succeed and be reused for future missions.
The launch window was previously 6:36 to 8:35 p.m. So Falcon Heavy gets its enormous lift from firing 27 rockets at once.
According to the firm, only the Saturn V moon rocket, which was used to send humans to the moon for the Apollo missions, has delivered more payload to orbit.
The black-and-white colossus combines three Falcon 9 first stages to form one 27-engine megarocket.
When fully fuelled, it weighed 2.8 million kilograms (6.2 million pounds) - the weight of about 400 elephants.
Falcon Heavy is essentially made of up three Falcon 9 rockets strapped together, though the center core is substantially strengthened so it can support the two side boosters, which are regular Falcon 9 rockets.

Yet, he seemingly stopped the ball at the goal line and made no real attempt to complete the goal. "I don't know why he did that". Fourth-placed Saint-Etienne drew 2-2 at Amiens on Saturday, while Marseille, in fifth, were beaten 2-0 at Bordeaux on Friday.
