No more SpaceX news? :eek:h: I will make one. :p :lol:

SpaceX is targeting launch of the Telstar 18 VANTAGE satellite to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The four-hour launch window opens at 11:28 p.m. EDT on Sunday, September 9, or 3:28 UTC on Monday, September 10. The satellite will be deployed approximately 32 minutes after liftoff.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Landing rockets on barges is almost boring now.


Almost. :)


Can't wait for BFR grasshopper testing next year (ET - Elon Time).


Signature updated... but I feel like I missed a launch and stage recovery somewhere between 7 August and now due to the holidays. Didn't an Iridium go up from Vandenberg?
