SpaceX | Pushing Falcon Heavy Harder Than Ever Before

For the second time in 2023, SpaceX will launch the Falcon Heavy rocket from Launch Complex-39A, Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Unlike the last Falcon Heavy launch, which featured the landing of the two side boosters back on land, this Falcon Heavy will be fully expended, meaning none of the three boosters will be recovered.

Marking the sixth Falcon Heavy mission, SpaceX will launch two payloads, one significantly heavier than the other. The 6,400 kg (14,000 lb) ViaSat-3 Americas satellite will have a smaller companion riding along side called Arcturus, which only weights 300 kg (660 lb). Both of these satellites will be placed into a geostationary Earth orbit.
