Launch time re-set to 4:05pm Pacific after a couple hiccups.

...and another hold. If this keeps up it'll be a night launch (fingers crossed).

Cool! Something interesting to watch during the mandatory quarterly MegaCorp Sales/Marketing self-love webcast. Thanks!

Watched the SpaceX launch this morning at 7:13am. Was still in bed, so watched on my phone, lol. Some controversy about NOAA blocking part of the broadcast. Dunno.

Sounds like a little bureaucratic turf war over what is a remote sensing 'spy' satellite and a launch craft with a 'GoPro' zip-tied to the second stage. Who knows with the T'Rumpf administration. It wouldn't surprise me if Pres. 'Deadbeat' Donnie ordered his subordinates to mess with real billionaires who're actually successful in business without running to the bankruptcy court every few years.
