The rocket, launched from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida, will put the Saudi communications satellite Arabsat-6A into orbit. After the boosters perform their task, they must land on their own engines at a given point for reuse. The launch was repeatedly postponed and it was previously planned to launch the rocket on April 11, but due to the strong wind it was postponed for a day.

The first flight of the SpaceX super-heavy rocket Falcon Heavy took place in February 2018. In the maximum configuration, the carrier is capable of delivering up to 64 tons to low Earth orbit.

April 4, it became known that NASA is considering the use of the Falcon Heavy super-heavy rocket and the ICPS (Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage) rocket stage for the first Orion manned mission to the Moon. To do this, it is necessary to solve the problem of fueling the Orion spacecraft as part of the Falcon Heavy head part.
