With a two-hour launch window, the launch of Hispasat 30W-6 communications satellite will be attempted to transfer orbit geostationary by SpaceX on March 6 at 12:33am ET.
SpaceX says the Hispasat 30W-6 is the heaviest and biggest payload ever put in the orbit by the company.
Mr Musk tweeted afterwards: "Very proud of the SpaceX team!" Musk said on Twitter. The total cost of a Falcon 9 launch is predicted to reach £44 million ($61m). In the hyperconnected world in which we live, access to quality broadband is an essential need for economic, social and even personal development, and this satellite fulfils this need in places other technologies can not reach. It's his company's 50th launch since the Falcon 9 first took flight almost eight years ago. The launch - 50th for the Falcon 9, if all goes well - for Spanish company Hispasat was last delayed from February 25.
ULA, a Boeing-Lockheed Martin joint venture, recently completed the 76th Atlas V mission without a major failure.
The company said it will not attempt a landing of the Falcon 9 first stage during this launch.
Tuesday's mission is SpaceX's 50th launch and the fifth of the year.
SpaceX's booster recovery ship remained in Port Canaveral and didn't go to the location, due to the increasing risks from rough seas that could jeopardize the mission. "Utilizing the satellite's Ka band transponders, Hispasat 30W-6 will enable Hispasat to expand its broadband service offering in the European region and northwest Africa".
The satellite is Madrid-based Hispasat's 11th in orbit, concluding an expansion that more than doubled the company's fleet over the past five years.
Following take-off, the satellite would be deployed just under 33 minutes later, after which the first stage of Falcon 9 would fall back to Earth. Those types of missions largely moved overseas while ULA focused on USA government missions.
The launch that achieved the rocket's half-century took place from the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
