Now that it's been some time since that launch, it's time for the company to return to its regular routine. The latest delay, according to a tweet Saturday, is to allow additional time for final checkouts. The starlink satellite aims to provide low-priced Internet access on a global scale. This time, the sun's coming up at 6:49 a.m., so the pre-dawn magic show could be thrilling. According to Space.com those experimental solutions include parachutes and equipping recovery ships with metal arms. Why not? The Falcon Heavy will give a boost to multiple planned space missions that were technologically not feasible until now, literally.

Nonetheless, it is known that humans can make it possible to bring in minerals from asteroids, considering the Falcon Heavy's first successful test fire. As the report notes, other components of the Falcon 9 are already recycled from previous missions, including a stage booster that launched the Taiwanese Formosat-5 satellite back in August 2017.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch, which will blast Starlink broadband satellites and a radar-imaging satellite called Paz into space, has been delayed.

SpaceX is all about reducing the cost of launching things into space, and right now one of those costs it think it can eliminate is having to use a new fairing every time it launches a rocket. The company even used reusable rocket technology on its superb launch of the Falcon Heavy Rocket.

One of the charred side boosters that helped push Heavy and its payload - Musk's red Tesla Roadster driven by "Starman" - to space is now on display at KSC for the next few days for all to see.

SpaceX has failed to explicitly mention about these satellites, though, and they only came up to public knowledge via documents the company filed with the Federal Communications Commission.
