Launch Cost: $90,000,000
The ViaSat-3 is a series of three Ka-band satellites is expected to provide vastly superior capabilities in terms of service speed and flexibility for a satellite platform. Each ViaSat-3 class satellite is expected to deliver more than 1-Terabit per second of network capacity, and to leverage high levels of flexibility to dynamically direct capacity to where customers are located.

Falcon Heavy – SpaceX
- Family: Falcon
- Length: 70 m
- Diameter: 12.2 m
- Launch Mass: 1400 T
- Low Earth Orbit Capacity: 63800 kg
The Falcon Heavy was manufactured by SpaceX with the first launch on 2018-02-06. Falcon Heavy has 5 successful launches and 0 failed launches with a total of 5 launches. The Falcon Heavy is a variant of the Falcon 9 full thrust launch vehicle and consists of a standard Falcon 9 rocket core, with two additional boosters derived from the Falcon 9 first stage.
Strap-On Booster Landing
The side-booster will attempt to land back at the launch site.
Return to Launch Site – RTLS
A return to launch site usually means that after stage separation the booster flips and does a burn back towards the launch site, landing near where it initially launched from.
Strap-On Booster Landing
The side-booster will be expended following its 8th flight.
B1068 will be expended after its first flight.
Atlantic – N/A
The Atlantic ocean on the East coast of the United States is a common landing area for expended boosters.
Ocean – Ocean
Typically indicates a landing in which the booster is not recovered.
SpaceX – SpX
- Type: Commercial
- Abbreviation: SpX
- Administration: CEO: Elon Musk
- Founded: 2002
- Launchers: Falcon | Starship

- Country: USA
Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX, is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by entrepreneur Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars. SpaceX operates from many pads, on the East Coast of the US they operate from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and historic LC-39A at Kennedy Space Center. They also operate from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, usually for polar launches. Another launch site is being developed at Boca Chica, Texas.
Falcon Heavy at work again!:)
Falcon heavy is the one to see, as it visually parts the sky, on its way to orbit.
Will both side boosters land back at the Cape?
The landing information is available above. It looks like only one of the side boosters will land back at LZ1.
Can we get a re-count on the # of successful Falcon Heavy Lauches?
Seems like the counter is stuck on Five (5).
The correct number is five launches.
