Falcon Heavy ready for its second attempt at a second flight

12 Avril, 2019, 02:13 | Auteur: Therese Cote

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.

As with all SpaceX launches, this will be a livestreamed event.

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. With only one successful Falcon Heavy launch under its belt, SpaceX would rather not have to delay this second flight again, but safety is a top priority.

Shaw Communications shares sink despite better-than-expected 2Q earnings

The webcast should begin about 20 minutes before the rocket's anticipated liftoff.

To facilitate this, the two side boosters will attempt to land back at SpaceX's Landing Zones 1 and 2 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, while the center core will attempt to land on the Of Course I Still Love You drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean. The first retrieval didn't go so well for the poor old core booster, which missed the landing and plunged into the ocean after delivering the Roadster to orbit in February previous year. Update, April 10: Adds delay and updated how to watch information.
