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.

SpaceX will be launching its second Falcon Heavy rocket carrying the Arabsat-6A communications satellite to orbit. SpaceX typically launches Falcon 9 rockets.

Mr Musk shared photos of the landing on Twitter, saying: "The Falcons have landed".

SpaceX has delayed the launch of its newest mega rocket because of dangerously high wind.

Musk threw his own convertible into space previous year, which is reportedly in a solar orbit around Mars.it happens to still be the same regardless of some less shine and a loss of a few chips here and there.

Cam Newton reacts to Panthers firing Ron Rivera: 'This one hurt deep'
Newton met with a variety of doctors including flying to Green Bay to meet with renowned foot specialist Dr. A healthy Newton would have a tremendous amount of leverage over the organization given the circumstances.

Then, following booster separation, Falcon Heavy's two side boosters successfully touched down at SpaceX's Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and Falcon Heavy's centre core landed successfully on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship, stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

The rocket is expected to be used primarily for USA military missions, and to launch spy satellites and hefty commercial telecom satellites. It's nearly certainly still in orbit around the sun with a mannequin at the wheel.

And the launch came just a year and two months after the Falcon Heavy took off on its maiden voyage on February 6, 2018.

What is all the more fantastic about this engineering effort, however, is that the world's largest rocket does not just launch into space.

Bridenstine said everything is on the space table as NASA strives to meet the White House's goal of landing astronauts back on the moon by 2024. The Falcon Heavy is essentially three of those single rockets strapped together. The company is intent on driving down launch costs by recycling rocket parts.
