USSF-44 Mission

USSF-44 Mission

SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, November 1 at 9:41 a.m. ET (13:41 UTC) for Falcon Heavy’s launch of the USSF-44 mission to a geosynchronous Earth orbit from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available on Wednesday, November 2 at 9:37 a.m. ET (13:37 UTC).

Following booster separation, Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters will land at SpaceX’s Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

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

    over 3 years since last Heavy launch, but so seamless that it looks like they have been doing it on a regular basis. Absolutely amazing.

      I mean this is an oversimplification, but a Falcon Heavy launch is really just 3 simultaneous falcon-9 launches. the only part more complicated is the side booster separation. the landings are completely autonomous so although a double landing looks cool, it’s not any harder than a single landing

      Still a different beast as three things could fail

      Quite a contrast with bloated, pork driven Federal Agency NASA, which has corrupted, screwed up every contractor they have dealt with.. Thankfully, Elon’s SpaceX finally said “FU NASA, we’ll do it ourselves”..

      Given how many Falcon 9s they’ve launched since then, it’s fair to say they haven’t stopped.

    27:00 the perfect double booster landing is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen in my life.

      @Mr Mike Same here !

    • AceStormtrooper says:

      Yeah, it felt good and satisfying.

      Did the third one land ?

    • A Ament says:

      ​@Kaasmeester i can totally agree with you that its emotional. Watching 2 massive vertical poles fall from the sky and then land is just mind boggling. On land and from a distance at Kennedy Space Center you would have though they were landing telephone poles. I was so glued with my own eyes I forgot to zoom in with my camera. So many good moments. The roadster and dont panic everyone was going nuts. Everyone was hi-five-ing..

    • Kaasmeester says:

      @A Ament That must have been something. I count myself privileged to have watched it live on TV, and I’ll admit I cried a little. That launch was a bold statement flung in the face of all the bad news and negativity of the last decade, saying: Yes! Mankind is still awesome.

    Nobody can beat the coverage of a SpaceX launch and recovery, their coverage is second to none, beating out all other competition with awesome camera footage, impressive commentary where people don’t talk over one another, the commentary stops as others update the mission and then resume as though never interrupted. There has never been a better space related subject in my opinion which can beat a double booster landing one a couple seconds behind the other. Outstanding work SpaceX team. Falcon heavy not flown for 3 years and then fly again as though it was a normal routine. You are the most professional SpaceX, the most enjoyable to watch and the most initiative of all other space companies. Way to go, thank you for an outstanding viewer sensational overall coverage. Star ship next 😊

    Hearing SpaceX employees wildly cheer at each stage of the launch and landing was a joy to hear. They were cheering their own work and its quality, and were proud of it. I cheer them!

  6. S. B. says:

    the booster landing never gets old

  7. Pellaeon says:

    Seeing those boosters land simultaneously will never get old.

    Amazing work, SpaceX.
