SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch Tuesday February 6, 2018 Kennedy Space Center 

 

UPDATE: LAUNCH IS NOW SET FOR 3:45pm. DELAY IS CAUSED BY UPPER LEVEL WINDS

 

 

Residents of Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral (also known as Florida's Space Coast) are preparing for the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy on Tuesday, February 6, 2018.

 

The Falcon Heavy is currenty set to liftoff at 1:30pm from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center with a window lasting two and one-half (2-1/2) hours. There is an 80% chance of favorable weather for the launch and temperatures are expected to be in the 70s.

 

If the launch is delayed until Wednesday, the weather is expected to be about the same as Tuesday with a 70% chance of good conditions.

 

SpaceX will attempt to land all three first stages of the rocket...two at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and one on the drone ship a few hundred miles off Florida's East Coast. Sonic booms will rock the Space Coast when that occurs.

 

This launch is an historic event with 100,000 visitors expected to view the launch and enjoy all that the Cocoa Beach area has to offer. The best viewing spots will fill up quickly so plan to arrive early and relax until launch time.

What an amazing feat Elon Musk & everyone @SpaceX accomplished today. The launch was flawless & watching the booster rockets land successfully was a great accomplishment as well. Can't wait to see where we are space-wise in just the next five or ten years!

Debe,

It was a perfect day for a launch except for those pesky upper level winds which caused all the delays. It is mind boggling to think of what happened today and process all the possibilites it opens up. Congratulations to Elon Musk and SpaceX on a job well done.

5 million pounds of liftoff thrust?  I can't even comprehend how that works.  Thanks for sharing, Diana.

Hey Diana Zaccaro I saw the launch on tv, it must have been spectacular in person. Nice to see those big launches again-I miss the space shuttle!

I'm glad you were able to see it...I watched from my kitchen window and even took a pic with my iPhone. It was nice to hear the sonic booms again.

I also miss the space shuttle...this was a great launch but I miss the manned space flight launches.
