The Falcon 9 rocket's first stage will return to landing at Landing Zone-1 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
SpaceX announced Thursday it was postponing the Friday launch of its Falcon 9 rocket, with the secretive government payload known as Zuma, to Sunday. The delay was caused by "extreme weather", likely the result of storm Grayson, which appears to have left the United States to deal with freezing cold temperatures. Musk also confirmed that the Falcon Heavy's hold down test fire will occur sometime next week.
"There's a lot of risk associated with the Falcon Heavy", he told SpaceNews. SpaceX also announced plans to fly a Crew Dragon spacecraft, carrying two people, on a circumlunar mission in late 2018 using a Falcon Heavy, but the company has provided no updates on the status of that effort since announcing it in February 2017. In December, Musk announced the rocket would carry his own Tesla Roadster sports vehicle on a trajectory that would take it past the planet Mars.
