Falcon Heavy launch this weekend, with double sonic booms

This Saturday, SpaceX prepares to launch the USSF-67 mission for the U.S. Space Force from Florida’s Space Coast.

The Falcon Heavy rocket is set to take off at 5:55pm, Jan 14th, from LC-39a at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and weather conditions are projected a favorable 80-90% Gor for Launch

The payloads on board this flight include the Continuous Broadcast Augmenting SATCOM (CBAS 2) communications satellite and Long Duration Propulsive ESPA 3A (LDPE 3A) rideshare satellite with multiple experimental payloads aboard.

The Falcon Heavy is capable of producing more than five million pounds of thrust at liftoff due to its three first-stage boosters and 27 Merlin engines; creating an awe inspiring experience for those who witness it firsthand.

Launch viewers will even hear its sonic booms throughout Central Florida, which will occur approximately eight minutes after launch when the two side boosters land back at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station
