By Nancy Agarwal on June 28, 2019

In the present day, Falcon Heavy is the most robust and sturdy rocket. In this, each first-stage booster of rocket contains 9 engines for 27 firing all together at a total for takeoff from Kennedy SpaceCenter of NationalAeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). However, the first launch of Falcon heavy rocket was in February 2018.

Falcon Heavy Rocket Launch

Elon Musk’s announced that it was the most challenging and significant mission in SpaceX history which included four separate upper-stage engine burns and three separate orbits to deploy the satellites. The Company mentioned this on its website that all the satellites lifted into orbit had been deployed successfully. The satellites also made contact after the launch.

In Florida, From Kennedy Space Center a SpaceX Falcon’s heavy rocket blasted off after placing 24 experimental satellites into orbit after what the U.S. Space and Missile Systems Center called one of its “most strenuous launch” ever. After the delay of 3 hours from the actual launch time on Monday, the spacecraft upraised off to cheers from bystanders at 2:30 a.m. (0630 GMT).  NASA also included a toast heater sized atomic clock for proper navigation of its spacecraft.
SpaceX said that the booster rockets were separated cautiously as the craft began its mission to deploy the satellites for 6 hours. The two side boosters returned safely back to Earth, landing beside onto U.S. Air Force descending pads i.e. Cape Canaveral, but the center booster of the rocket missed its mark. As a result, got crashed in the Atlantic Ocean not surprisingly. Moreover, the mission is the 3rd for the SpaceX falcon heavy rocket and is dubbed from Space Test Program 2 (STP-2).

SpaceX has been garrisoning satellites for numerous agencies like National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and AtmosphericAdministration (NOAA), and also to defense department laboratories, various universities and a non-profit organization.
