How to watch historic Falcon Heavy launch live online tomorrow

Crews positioned the Falcon Heavy vertically ahead of launch from LC-39A at Kennedy Space Center.

As noted in a SpaceX mission overview, today's launch from the Kennedy Space Center in the U.S. state of Florida is scheduled for 6:36 pm local time (11:36 pm United Kingdom time), but with a generous launch window that will bleed over into tomorrow.

In fact, the two side boosters that will fly tomorrow are already earmarked for Falcon Heavy's next flight, now slated for June.

Media outlets in Central Florida report sonic booms could potentially be heard in Brevard, Orange, Seminole and Volusia counties.

According to Space.com, Falcon Heavy flights cost SpaceX customers between $90 million and $150 million.

About seven minutes after launch, the Elon Musk-led company will attempt to land two of the vehicles' boosters on pads on the Cape.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have welcomed their first guest at their newly renovated cottage in Windsor. However, according to protocol, the Queen's doctors can not be completely excluded from the delivery.

For SpaceX, the addition of the large and reusable Falcon Heavy to its launch business gives the company the ability to bid on heavier payloads than it can with the smaller Falcon 9 rocket, opening up the market for big commercial satellites launches and national security missions. During the rocket's first launch in 2018, the side boosters made it, but the center core missed its drone ship landing.

SpaceX's launch livestream will go live approximately 20 minutes before liftoff, now scheduled for no earlier than 8pm ET (00:00 UTC, April 11).

Launch weather officials are monitoring upper-level winds that could push the Falcon Heavy liftoff to the end of the launch window. Their caution with the new boosters was noted when they delayed the original April 9 launch date to the next day, April 10.

Wednesday's launch will be SpaceX's second flight with the Falcon Heavy rocket, which had a successful debut flight in February 2018. The two strapped to the main booster are created to break apart and land back on Earth. That will be the first Falcon Heavy flight to re-use boosters. SpaceX is expected to attempt to land all three this week.

The Arabsat 6A that will depart Earth this week, on the other hand, will stick around in orbit, providing Ku-band and Ka-band communications coverage for the Middle East, North and South Africa.

"Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars". The mission is to launch a Saudi Arabian communication satellite about the size of a school bus into space. The company hopes to get there on the back of the Falcon Heavy.
