SpaceX's most powerful Falcon Heavy launches successfully on its first commercial mision

SpaceX might end up re-using these very same boosters for an U.S Air Force Falcon Heavy mission, set to take place later this year. Its initial test flight, conducted in February of 2018, sent the Tesla Roadster that belonged to the company's CEO and Founder, Elon Musk sent into a heliocentric orbit.

SpaceX has launched its second supersized rocket from Florida, a year after sending up a sports vehicle on the initial test flight.

Arabsat-6A is a Saudi Arabian communications satellite that is created to serve the Middle East, Africa and Europe. Not only did the USA launch provider successfully lift the Arabsat payload to orbit, it also successfully landed all three of its boosters back on Earth. All three reusable boosters are Falcon Block 9 cores.

Minutes after launch, the two side cores dropped away and descended to make separate touchdowns at two landing zones on the Florida coast, not far from the launch pad.

"The Falcons have landed", Musk tweeted. The number in the name stands for the number of engines used by the rocket, which is used for satellite launches and supply missions for the International Space Station.

Falcon Heavy rumbled aloft at 6:35 p.m. local time from NASA's Kennedy Space Station in Florida. The company selected Falcon Heavy in September for a mission anticipated in late 2017 or 2018.

Following reports, the Riverside County Fire Department arrived to the scene around 2 a.m. and contained the fire by 2:28 a.m. Don't fret if you couldn't fork over a pile of Benjamins to gain access to the Coachella Festival this weekend.

The Roadster is thought to be on the other side of the sun from us right now, about three-quarters of the way around its first solar orbit, said senior analyst at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, Jon Giorgini. The company launched the rocket on a test mission previous year.

"Arabsat-6A is a high-capacity telecommunications satellite that will deliver television, radio, Internet, and mobile communications to customers in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe", SpaceX said in a Arabsat-6A mission description.

About 34 minutes after liftoff, the shiny silver satellite was successfully deployed. SpaceX landed all three booster cores for a recovery rate of 100 percent.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida-SpaceX has delayed the launch of its newest mega rocket because of dangerously high wind.

The launch systems are aimed at ending United States reliance on Russian Soyuz rockets for $80 million-per-seat rides to the $100 billion orbital research laboratory, which flies about 250 miles above the earth.
