Barring more upper-atmosphere wind issues that postponed yesterday’s launch, between 6:35 and 8:31 pm Eastern today, Space X will launch their first commercial Falcon Heavy Flight. Should be exciting!
Perhaps most exciting is their attempt to land three boosters simultaneously, two on the pad on terra firma and one on a autonomous drone ship. I’m hoping for an exceptional show.
This video should go live approx 20 minutes before launch.
This really is a week for space. Yesterday’s amazing release of the first picture of a black hole and today’s earlier crash-landing on the moon by Israel’s Beresheet spacecraft will make this week one for the history books. Let’s hope the launch tonight isn’t postponed and is perfect. Fingers crossed!
