SpaceX launches Falcon Heavy rocket carrying 24 experimental satellites
SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, carrying 24 experimental satellites in what Elon Musk’s rocket company called one of the most difficult launches it has attempted.
The craft blasted off to cheers from onlookers at 2:30 a.m. after a three-hour delay from the original launch time late Monday (June 24).
The boosters separated safely and the craft began its six-hour mission to deploy the satellites.
