Quoting from spaceflightnow.com:

"The Falcon Heavy static fire test has been rescheduled for no earlier than 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) Friday, the opening of a four-hour window."

As seen from space: Falcon Heavy vertical on the pad :) The space community is rooting for its success! @spacex @elonmusk

I wonder if they emblazon that ISS icon (right below the "SPACEX") each time they return. If so, I look forward to seeing one with two ISS icons!

Launch attempt of the "mysterious" Zuma payload with a brand-new F9 first stage coming up in less than an hour, with attendant 1st stage landing attempt. They usually go live around 20 minutes before launch, window scheduled for 0100-0300 GMT on Jan. 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST on Jan. 7).

For most of the world, the next Falcon 9 launch is the 22nd (tonight, for me). Reusing a flight-proven booster, launching from Vandenburg.

0127:23 GMT on 23rd (8:27:23 p.m. EST; 5:27:23 p.m. PST on 22nd)

In the past they have webcast throughout the deploy process. It's very pretty to see a chain of satellites against a backdrop of the Earth.

It's great to see so many different space launch concepts being attempted. Frankly, I hope they all find a niche; there's nothing like diversity, although at a guess I believe there will be a shakeout.
It's been a big week for space billionaires: Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin tests New Shepard spaceship, Elon Musk's SpaceX launches flight-proven Falcon + Dragon, and now Paul Allen's Stratolaunch conducts taxi test for world's biggest airplane. https://www.geekwire.com/2017/paul-allens-stratolaunch-space-venture-puts-monster-airplane-first-taxi-test/
