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.

SpaceX completed a static fire of the massive rocket today ahead of lift-off next week, which is now planned for April 9.
