SpaceX launches the coming Monday
If you missed your chance to watch these events in the past, then you have another chance to catch it live on Monday. As per the reports, the third Falcon Heavy launch is expected to launch on Monday, June 24 at 8:30 pm.
Even NASA is eagerly waiting for it. If everything goes according to their plans, then the mission will send around twenty-four satellites into space. Besides, among 24, NASA owns a handful of satellites.

As soon as the window opens, the Falcon heavy will head directly into space. However, the weather can become the reason for the delay in the launch. Furthermore, it can even push the launch dates to another day.
NASA is looking forward to creating a new future of spacelift by adding new experimental technologies and instruments to the spacecraft.
