SpaceX Falcon Heavy's first commercial launch (for a paying customer). In February, 2018, SpaceX did a demonstration launch of Falcon Heavy, carrying Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster with Starman into space. Launch site: LC-39A, Kennedy Space Center, Florida (the Apollo launch pad). The SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launched the Arabsat 6A communications satellite for Arabsat of Saudi Arabia into geostationary orbit. Arabsat 6A will provide Ku-band and Ka-band communications coverage over the Middle East and North Africa regions, as well as a footprint in South Africa. This marks the first time all three rocket boosters from Falcon Heavy successfully returned and landed on Earth.
