If you were looking forward to the second launch of the Falcon Heavy SpaceX missile last weekend, you were very disappointed when the company was forced to postpone the launch. We had a feeling that it could happen, and the launch was dropped to this day, Tuesday, April 9, but now another delay pushed it even further.
SpaceX now says that Falcon Heavy is likely to begin tomorrow, Wednesday, April 10th. Today's launch has been cleared due to bad weather, but the forecast on Wednesday looks much more favorable, and we will finally be able to see SpaceX mega-rocket for the second time.
According to SpaceX, the forecast for today showed only a small chance that the missile will fly as planned, with only 30% probability of favorable conditions. Wednesday, on the other hand, currently 80 percent are likely to have favorable launch conditions.
This may be the second flight for missile Falcon Heavy system, but it still remains the main "first" for the company in several directions. The first flight of Falcon Heavy was, in essence, a test run, and even Elon Mask said that he was not sure how things would go.
This time SpaceX has a paid client. In its first commercial launch, Falcon Heavy will deliver Arabsat-6A to orbit, marking a new milestone for business and even more cementing it as a leader in commercial flight. , the dim skyward is only half the fun. Reusable missile companies will make their way back to Earth for those landings that will allow them to be reused. In the first flight of Falcon Heavy, both side accelerators successfully landed, but the central core booster crashed into the ocean instead of being caught by the UAV UA SpacePlayer.
The launch is scheduled for 6:35 pm.
