My guest this week on the SpaceQ podcast is Chris Gebhardt, Assistant Managing Editor of Chris and I talked about SpaceX, specifically the upcoming maiden flight of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket.

The launch is scheduled for today and this podcast was recorded the Sunday before. The launch window opens up at 1:30 p.m. EST (18:30 UTC) and extends to 4:30 p.m. (21:30 UTC). Currently the weather is favourable with a 80% probability of good launch conditions.  You can watch the launch live on SpaceQ starting around 1:10 p.m. EST (18:10 UTC).
