As per Musk, Falcon Heavy will fly at speeds “equal to 18 Boeing 747 aircraft at full throttle” with a total 2,500 tons of thrust. He had also confirmed earlier that Falcon Heavy’s hold down test fire will take place next week.

Parallel to this, SpaceX has announced the delay of its Zuma mission yet again, which has already been delayed from its previous take off which was scheduled for November. As per the recent tweet by SpaceX, the private space company is now eyeing January 7 as the launch date for the US government satellite. The company is apparently facing extreme weather conditions due to storm Grayson (also known as Bomb Cyclone) as a major hurdle to give a go-ahead to the launch.

Alongside the much secretive mission being undertaken by SpaceX, the Falcon Heavy is gaining the eyes because of the recent posts made by the company and Elon Musk on various social media platforms. It is surprising that even Musk is not sure about the how the launch of the Falcon Heavy will play out. Though one thing that he guarantees is a thrill for space enthusiasts – “Excitement on launch day guaranteed, one way or another".
