The 230-foot-tall rocket weighs more than 3.1 million pounds and is made up of three reusable boosters based on SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket, which has been ferrying cargo to the International Space Station since 2012. 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.
The launch is a powerful endorsement of Falcon Heavy, which provides far more payload capacity, at far lower cost, than any competitor. That mission was more of a test than anything else, with head man Elon Musk deciding to send his own Tesla as the rocket's payload. The second stage carrying the satellite separated as planned shortly after launch, and SpaceX later confirmed successful deployment in geostationary orbit. This thrilled tourists and area residents alike with the dual sonic booms as the rockets appeared to make their landing nearly in a synchronized fashion just a few hundred feet from one another.

Arabsat-6A saw all three FH first stages land safely.
The satellite was constructed for the Saudi Arabian company by United States contractor Lockheed Martin.
The historic launch was watched by millions around the globe thanks to Mr Musk's body decision to mount a cherry-red Tesla sports auto as the rocket's payload.
