NOTAM for the launch. It indicates a one day slip.

Wikipedia sure is trippy. I looked up the list of all F9 cores (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Falcon_9_first-stage_boosters) trying to figure out which cores are left, and it showed B1049 as launching February 17, 2021 (correct) but that it was lost in landing attempt (??). I refreshed a couple of minutes later and it now shows as awaiting launch with a planned landing attempt.

Hopefully the first time I looked wasn't s simple time machine wormhole mistake.

B1059 instead of B1049?

Did those birds come all the way from port on the ASDS? It was hundreds of miles out in the ocean. If they were kicked off from the landing it would be a long journey back to land. I suppose that after the landing was done they could head back and continue to use the ASDS as a moving base of operations though..
