Falcon Heavy | ViaSat-3 series satellite

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
April 30, 2022, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Communications

The ViaSat-3 is a series of three Ka-band satellites is expected to provide vastly superior capabilities in terms of service speed and flexibility for a satellite platform. Each ViaSat-3 class satellite is expected to deliver more than 1-Terabit per second of network capacity, and to leverage high levels of flexibility to dynamically direct capacity to where customers are located.

Falcon Heavy | Psyche, EscaPADE and Janus

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
Aug. 31, 2022, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Planetary Science

Psyche is a NASA interplanetary mission to visit the main belt asteroid of the same name, 16 Psyche. Spacecraft will take 4 years and one Mars flyby to reach the asteroid, which is of particular interest due to being comprised mostly of iron and nickel. Psyche is theorized to be a remnant of an early planet's core, and may offer insights into how solar system formed and evolved. The mission is led by Arizona State University, with NASA JPL being responsible for mission management and operations. This launch also includes two secondary payloads: Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers (EscaPADE), which will study the Martian atmosphere, and Janus, which will study binary asteroids.

Falcon Heavy | VIPER

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
Sept. 30, 2023, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Lunar Exploration

NASA’s Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover, or VIPER, is a mobile robot that will go to the South Pole of the Moon to get a close-up view of the location and concentration of water ice that could eventually be harvested to sustain human exploration on the Moon, Mars — and beyond. VIPER represents the first resource mapping mission on another celestial body.

Falcon Heavy | GOES-U

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
April 30, 2024, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-S Series (GOES-S) is the second of the next generation of geostationary weather satellites. The four satellites of the series will provide advanced imaging with increased spatial resolution and faster coverage for more accurate forecasts, real-time mapping of lightning activity, and improved monitoring of solar activity.

Falcon Heavy | Gateway PPE & HALO

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
May 31, 2024, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Human Exploration

The Power and Propulsion Element (PPE) and Habitation and Logistics Outpost (HALO) are the foundational elements of NASA's lunar-orbiting space station "Gateway". The PPE is a 60-kilowatt class solar electric propulsion spacecraft that also will provide power, high-speed communications, attitude control and the capability to move the Gateway to different lunar orbits. The HALO is the pressurized living quarters where astronauts who visit the Gateway, often on their way to the Moon, will work. It will provide command and control and serve as the docking hub for the outpost. HALO will support science investigations, distribute power, provide communications for visiting vehicles and lunar surface expeditions, and supplement the life support systems aboard Orion, NASA’s spacecraft that will deliver Artemis astronauts to the Gateway.

Falcon Heavy | Europa Clipper

SpaceX | USA
Kennedy Space Center, FL, USA
Oct. 1, 2024, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Planetary Science

Europa Clipper is the first dedicated mission to study Jupiter's moon Europa. Mission is developed by NASA and comprises of an orbiter spacecraft, which, while in orbit around Jupiter, will perform numerous flybys over Europa. Europa Clipper payload suit included high-resolution cameras and spectrometers for imaging Europa's surface and thin atmosphere, an ice-penetrating radar to search for subsurface water, and a magnetometer and gravity measurements to measure the moon's magnetic field and unlock clues about its ocean and deep interior.
