Booster is B1052.3.  It is planned to come back to set down at LZ-1.

They know the booster's ready when it sticks to the wall.

Nice! Launching just 13 minutes after sunset. This should be pretty. Maybe not as pretty as west coast sunset launches, because the plume won't be backlit. But still colorful hopefully. Can't wait!

The 1957 Spaghetti Harvest


Thank (insert personal Deity here) they finally eradicated the spaghetti weevil.

Did they delay it?  https://www.spacex.com/launches/ says "Live in 24 hours (Jan 28 5pm)"
 
2022-01-27 5:48:14 PM  
With Starlink on Saturday (3:00 PM EST), and NROL-87 on Wednesday (11:37 AM EST).

Plus Battlebots tonight, to make up for the (presumed) lack of Kaboom! on today's launch.

Still wish they'd get things moving again with Starship / Super Heavy...

Destructor: Did they delay it?  https://www.spacex.com/launches/ says "Live in 24 hours (Jan 28 5pm)"


Yeah, it's been rolled back 24 hours.  Tomorrow at 6 PM EST for Oontz.

Dammit.
 
2022-01-28 4:54:32 PM  
Here we go again. 70% chance of acceptable weather (60% yesterday). Here's hoping. This feed is live if you don't want to wait for oontz.

Weather is not currently a go. Another scrub likely.

You're probably right, but the SpaceX webcast site is still showing 16 minutes till start of coverage.

They're going to make the call at T-2. It could still happen. They are fueling just in case.

Oontz.

"we are hopeful Florida will stop being Florida in the next few minutes"
 
2022-01-28 5:58:09 PM  
Weird that the range is red and the clouds violate the rules but they think it will clear in 10 minutes.  Those clouds aren't going anywhere that soon, even with Florida's fickle weather.

she specifically said "hopeful"

I'm hopeful I'll suddenly find a few million in my account, but I'm not -confident- of such.

They gotta do what they need for safety, but I still want to see them get three launches within six days.
 
2022-01-28 6:01:38 PM  
I've watched so many of these that the script is getting annoyingly repetitive.
 
2022-01-28 6:02:33 PM  
10 to go, will weather suddenly improve?

They can still go even shorter than seven if the west coast launch falls between the other two.
 
2022-01-28 6:05:30 PM  
Clock reset to 15.
 
2022-01-28 6:06:14 PM  
See you again tomorrow. :(
 
2022-01-28 6:06:15 PM  
Scrubbed for the day
 
2022-01-28 6:06:15 PM  
Scrubbed for weather.  Tuna in tomorrow.
 
2022-01-28 6:06:29 PM  
bah another scrub.
 
2022-01-28 6:06:36 PM  
grab my rubber ducky, because we are once again scrubbing

Hell, if this one launches tomorrow and the other two go according to plan, that would be *two* launches tomorrow and the third on Feb. 2 (Groundhog Day...)  THREE, Ah, Ah, Ah, THREE Launches in FIVE days!

Thanks for the scrub word, Farkers. By watching SpaceX I would not have known. They need a graphic for scrubbed launches.

/ I propose a Brill-O Pad.

Did they forget to play the "ztnoo" sound?

Reporter "Where will this satellite be going?"

Italian scientist: "FIrst, it goes pasta da Earth.Then it goes pasta da Sun."

Reporter: "We heard the launch is delayed"

Itailian scientist; "Yes, the launch will be a little latte."

Huh. I just learned that this booster previously flew twice as a Falcon Heavy side booster.
 
2022-01-29 5:40:33 PM  
scrubbed again.

Trying again tomorrow with the Starlink launch pushed to Monday.
 
2022-01-29 6:25:13 PM  
Those responsible for rescheduling have been rescheduled.

The Heavy side must have run out of cookies.

My God, I hope the next two come off as planned.  That would give them three launches in four days.
 
2022-01-30 5:48:37 PM  
On the YouTube feed, it looks like launch will be slightly after 7 pm EST
 
2022-01-30 5:52:01 PM
