Next Falcon Heavy Launch Tonight 6/24/19 (6/25/19)

The third Falcon Heavy launch will occur tonight, the launch window beginning at 11:30 EDT.

A successful mission will certify the vehicle for the Air Force to use as a launch platform.

Should be spectacular!

PS> Launch has been pushed back to 2:30 AM EDT.  Better set the DVR for this one.

Well it did put a roadster in orbit around the sun and inner planets.... I can’t wait to see when it’s rated safe for manned flight.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

The Falcon Heavy launch was impressive!  I had watched a program on Apollo 17 and the only night launch of the Saturn V.  They were both very similar in terms of brightness.  It was weird watching the return of the boosters, and I thought they had exploded when the engines kicked on for the landing phase!  Too bad the main booster didn't make it, but landing on a ship in the middle of the ocean is probably the hardest achievement to accomplish (just ask a Naval Aviator)!
