The launch was supposed to take place on July 26, but it was postponed due to a safety issue. They resolved the issue and will try again on July 27. Both the rocket and the satellite are in good working order.
Jupiter 3 will have the wingspan of a large airplane and will join the Hughes Jupiter fleet of satellites. This satellite will aid in the provision of services such as in-flight Wi-Fi and the enhancement of private Wi-Fi through the use of other technologies.
The launch will take place from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and it will be the seventh time this large Falcon Heavy rocket has been used.
