SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, July 26 for Falcon Heavy’s launch of the Hughes JUPITER 3 mission to a geosynchronous transfer orbit from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The 99-minute launch window opens at 11:04 p.m. ET (03:04 UTC on July 27. If needed, a backup launch opportunity is available on Thursday, July 27 with the same window.

Both of the side boosters on this mission previously supported USSF-44 and USSF-67. Following stage separation, Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters will land on SpaceX’s Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about 15 minutes prior to liftoff.

    I appreciate Aborts. To have an abort every once in a while gives confidence on so many different levels for everyone involved in them. Kudos

    I just discovered this video and thought I’d missed the launch but it was aborted, which is good because now I can go outside to look for it tomorrow night. I live on the southeast coast of North Carolina where the shot will be visible if the night sky is clear, and I believe the weather forecast calls for a clear night.
