Scrub for weather.
Launch delayed 30 minutes according to webcast.
No. But we'll find out during the webcast. I'm guessing yes but could be wrong.
First time a set of fairings have been reused.
First time a carrier is launching their own payload that is not paid for by someone else.
I think this is from being in Silicon Valley and Elon's coding days. You get a bunch of coders together and push through to a goal. It's...

Excellent points. As Bezos mentioned, it's up to future generations to make the science and engineering work. All off planet habitation and life...
I find it fascinating that these satellites are nothing at all like the test articles already sent up. This design allows for a much quicker...
I'll just give it a Wow.
I'll add, that is incredible use of space. They used the interior space of the fairing to its maximum.
