Space travel technology company SpaceX is planning another mission for its Falcon Heavy rocket Wednesday, evening April 10.

The rocket's primary launch window opens at 6:35 p.m. EDT from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The rocket will be launching the Arabsat-6A satellite.

The Arabsat-6A satellite will deliver television, radio, internet and mobile communications to customers in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

After booster separation the Falcon Heavy's two side boosters will attempt to land it at SpaceX's Landing Zones 1 and 2 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

SpaceX's website claims the Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in the world and can lift nearly 64 metric tons of weight into orbit, more than twice the payload of the next biggest rocket. It cost about $90 million to build.
