The Amazing Camera Work Involved in the SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

Payload and vehicle remain healthy. According to a report from the San Diego Union-Tribune, the new launch time on Wednesday morning could mean a "pre-dawn contrail that could be visible from San Diego County". Musk said that they are getting closer to recovering the payload fairings and have been experimenting with parachutes on its fairings. The launch's primary mission is to deliver an observational satellite, called PAZ, for the Spanish government.

But now, due to the need of some final checks for the upgraded Falcon 9 fairing, the launch has been delayed.

SpaceX had planned to launch two demonstration satellites into space Saturday from Vandenberg, but then it rescheduled for Sunday. Also, the first-stage booster which was used to launch Taiwan's Formosat-5 satellite in August 2017 is ready. The Falcon Heavy rocket will now help propel a number of space missions that weren't technologically feasible until now.

SpaceX is planning to use a giant net - one so enormous that it takes up the majority of a high-speed watercraft named Mr. Steven - to catch reusable gear that falls back to Earth after missions to outer space.


"Back in 2015, Facebook decided against spending up to $1 billion on a satellite that would provide Internet to under-served regions in Africa and other continents".

In a tweet on Tuesday, SpaceX said the rocket is vertical and the weather is 90 percent favorable for launch.

SpaceX's aim is to reduce the cost of going into space and reusing components plays a major role in making that happen. The company even used reusable rocket technology on its superb launch of the Falcon Heavy Rocket. The starlink satellite aims to provide low-priced Internet access on a global scale. During the February 6 mission, the payload fairings held the now-famous midnight-cherry Tesla Roadster and its driver, a mannequin known as Starman.

On Wednesday, the Falcon 9's payload fairing will be the PAZ satellite.
