This Is the Future: SpaceX successfully sends Saudi satellite into orbit

The updated Falcon Heavy is now the world's most powerful operation rocket with 27 engines firing at liftoff. Built by Lockheed Martin for Saudi Arabian corporation Arabsat, the satellite is described by Lockheed vice president Lisa Callahan as one of "the most advanced commercial communications satellites we've ever built".

The space company's success comes a year after sending up a sports vehicle on the initial test flight.

There will be another chance to catch the spectacular landing sequence happen again on April 26, when SpaceX and NASA launch the Falcon 9 rocket on a Dragonfly mission to resupply the International Space Station.

Roughly three minutes after clearing the pad, Heavy's two side boosters separated from the core rocket for a synchronized landing at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, sparking boisterous cheers from SpaceX engineers in the company's Hawthorne, California headquarters.

Falcon Heavy carried a communications satellite forSaudi-based telecom firm Arabsat, which will beam internet and television services over Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

SpaceX also accomplished a new first on this mission, that of successfully recovering all three Falcon Heavy boosters. Each of the three boosters, on Thursday, made a safe return to Earth.

SpaceX chief Elon Musk warned in advance things might go wrong, given the upgraded version of the rocket with unproven changes. Then came SpaceX's successful commercial mission into space.

Center core: It's the landing of this third booster that is the greatest achievement, after a similar attempt by SpaceX failed in 2018, instead hitting the ocean at 300 miles an hour.

After a day's delay due to strong winds at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Falcon Heavy lifted off at 6:35 p.m. EDT under clear skies and tolerable winds.

This is Falcon Heavy's second launch.

An unmanned capsule from Elon Musk's SpaceX splashed into the Atlantic Ocean on March 8, successfully completing a mission crucial to NASA's long-delayed quest to resume human space flight from the United States soil later this year. It's nearly certainly still in orbit around the sun with a mannequin at the wheel.

When the rocket flew past year, its two side boosters made synchronized landings on side-by-side ground pads in Florida.

The satellite is created to provide television, internet, telephone, and secure communications to customers in the Middle East.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy has twice the power and costs about one third as much as United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV Heavy
