Stuff That’s Hard to Do

Everybody’s launchin’ this week!
(all times Eastern)

Per the Launch Handbook: Scrub, Reschedule, Rinse, Repeat
I expect this-week’s schedules to bounce around like a pool break.
Check back daily for the latest schedule guesses.

• Thu night Electron SARsat from NZ (previous mission had failed)
• Sun night 11pm Falcon9 Starlink from the Cape

¡¡ UPDATE !!


• Dec 28 Falcon Heavy, USSF Spaceplane X-37B from the Cape
• Dec 28 Falcon9 Starlink from Vandenberg

I’ll add the video links when they’re available
