SpaceX has successfully test fired the Falcon Heavy Block 5 rocket for the first time ever. SpaceX will aim for a four-day turnaround from static fire to launch, targeting liftoff as early as 6:36 pm EDT April 9th.
Static fire data looks good so far. This is first launch of Falcon Heavy Block 5, so we’re being extra cautious. Launch date might move. https://t.co/qTqXtQQe2k
