The SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch is currently scheduled for Sunday April 7 with a window of 6:36 p.m. through 8:35 p.m
The core booster wasn't as successful, missing its landing on the 'Of course, I still love you!' drone ship in the Atlantic by a very short distance. - The second launch of a Falcon Heavy rocket, which had been slated to lift off today, has been rescheduled.
More than a year after its debut mission, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket is ready to send a communications satellite for Saudi Arabia into orbit and attempt to accomplish a triple rocket landing after liftoff. The launch window opens at 6:35 p.m. ET on Wednesday (22:35 UTC) and closes at 8:32 p.m. (00:32 UTC on Thursday). That launch was the biggest rocket since the Saturn era ended in the 1970s.
The Falcon Heavy rocket will launch the Arabsat 6A communications satellite.
Follow SpaceX's social accounts, including YouTube and Twitter, for more updates on the Falcon Heavy Launch. As the space agency considers all contingency plans to accelerate a human return to the Moon, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has said there is a scenario in which a Falcon Heavy-albeit with a different upper stage-could launch the Orion spacecraft to the Moon.
Japan's air force loses contact with F-35 stealth fighter
The Government announced in December it planned to increase its procurement of F-35s from 42 to 147, including 105 F-35As. The stealth fighter, which has been beset by cost overruns and delays, has a price tag of around $100 million each.
In fact, the two side boosters that will fly tomorrow are already earmarked for Falcon Heavy's next flight, now slated for June.
A launch on a Falcon Heavy carries a price tag of $90 million, compared to competitor United Launch Alliance's Delta IV Heavy, which costs more than $300 million.
According to SpaceX, the forecast for today showed just a slight chance that the rocket would be able to take off as planned, with only a 30 percent likelihood of favorable conditions.
It's a repeat effort from a February 2018 test mission of the Falcon Heavy that saw two boosters land almost simultaneously.
SpaceX will provide a webcast of the launch, landing attempts, and satellite separation from the upper stage, beginning 20 minutes before the anticipated liftoff on Wednesday. SpaceX has high hopes for the recovery of rockets during this launch. The center core missed its drone ship landing when two of three engines ran out of igniter fluid.
Falcon Heavy's debut flight past year attracted massive attention, in part because CEO Elon Musk made a decision to launch his own luxury Tesla Roadsteras the test payload.
The version of the Falcon Heavy that will fly this week will not be exactly the same as the previous mission: The Falcon Heavy's rocket cores will be more powerful, making use of upgrades to SpaceX's smaller workhorse rocket, the Falcon 9.
