SpaceX video
SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, November 1 at 9:41 a.m. ET (13:41 UTC) for Falcon Heavy's launch of the USSF-44 mission to a geosynchronous Earth orbit from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Following booster separation, Falcon Heavy's two side boosters will land at SpaceX's Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

A magnificent launch (in spite of the fog-bound start) and it's great to see such a powerful rocket back in action.

Anybody notice the slight difference in separation times of the side boosters? The difference in event times increased as more events occurred all the way down to the landings.

Has that much of a difference happened before? Never noticed...

The past flights have had the two side boosters landing one after the other, but yes, the separation times were more noticeable on this flight. That said, this is only the fourth flight of Falcon Heavy and so what is normal or not only SpaceX knows.
