April 11, 2019

By Chris Forrester

SpaceX was forced to again delay the launch of Arabsat 6a because of bad weather at Cape Canaveral.

The new launch date is now a hoped-for April 11th in the late afternoon local time. The launch window  opens at 6.30pm EST. The Florida launch site suffered dangerously high winds.

A Falcon Heavy rocket will launch the Arabsat-6A satellite, owned by Arabsat and the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, and is SpaceX’s fourth launch this year, and the first of two Falcon Heavy launches in 2019.
