Top-level wind shear forces launch scrub
SEE LIVE: SpaceX is ready to launch its Falcon Heavy rocket from the Kennedy Space Center Pad 39A. The start window opens at 6:35 p.m. and closes at 8:31 p.m. SpaceX will attempt the first successful triple rocket landing during the company's first commercial Falcon Heavy flight mission.
BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – The launch of Falcon Heavy scheduled for Wednesday night has been rescheduled to 6:35 p.m. Thursday EDT.
Heavy will take off at the Kennedy Space Center carrying the Arabsat 6A communications satellite.
The start window was originally set for 6:35 p.m. local time on Wednesday, but rejected the launch twice due to wind shear at the upper level.
SpaceX announced that it has erased the launch around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
In addition to the launch, SpaceX will attempt to land Falcon Heavy's side reinforcements on Landing Zones 1 and 2, while the Falcon Heavy core will attempt to land on the "Of course I still love you" dronehip during the Arabsat-6A mission.
According to SpaceFlight Now, Arabsat 6A will provide coverage of Ku band and Ka band communications in the Middle East and North Africa regions, as well as a footprint in South Africa.
The Arabsat 6A communications satellite is manufactured by Arabsat of Saudi Arabia.
Falcon Heavy will be Falcon Heavy's second launch since last year's historic launch, which was announced as the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two.
The launch coverage can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
REFLEXES: SpaceX makes history with the historic launch of the Falcon Heavy Rocket last year.
