It’s been a while since the last time we all had the opportunity to see Falcon Heavy fly high above with its deafening engines. However, this morning it took the skies once more after that long break to show that there is a strong future ahead for it.
With 27 Merlin engines, the USSF-44 Falcon Heavy lifted off the ground from the Kennedy Space Center carrying two classified U.S. Space Force satellites into orbit where they will…well, I guess no one is meant to know exactly what they are for. So that part is a mystery. But it launched, if lifted, and it delivered (or so we assume as we don’t get to see that part).
If you’d like to see the full event take place, you can do so by watching the following video from SpaceX. Additionally below, we have also shared the landing of the side boosters taken from a distance that provides another great experience.
An amazing launch with an amazing finish that was experienced by so many. As the launch could be seen and heard from quite far away. However, those closer to the action go the best views. Even from a distance. The scene of the take off was quite a bit foggy, but the side boosters landed at Cape Canaveral where the weather was perfect to capture the event from all angles.
One of those lucky enough to capture the landing was Twitter user Forger Stucky, which can be seen in the following video. Even at a distance, the view is majestic. Just imagine experiencing something like that in person (of course, if you were there, you wouldn’t have to imagine anything). Yet again, another double touchdown for the history books.

Congratulations SpaceX on another successful display of well-placed effort and skill.
