Arabsat needs SpaceX to send its Arabsat-6A communications satellite into Earth orbit, and SpaceX wants to make good on its promise that the Falcon Heavy can fulfill a commercial need. Now the moment has (almost) arrived (again). But SpaceX chief Elon Musk said upper-level wind shear was extremely high.

The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in use today. Last year's test flight put a sports auto - Musk's own Tesla - convertible into space.
