80% chance of good weather at the launch site. Starlink 16 showed us that weather in the recovery area can still mess up a launch even when the forecast at the launch site is very good.

Planet SuperDoves!?!?!?!

SuperDoves are a pretty significantly upgrade over their ‘baseline’ Dove satellites. I don’t think the resolution is much different (resolution is primarily a function of physical size) but they can do a bunch more spectral bands.

I can't wait for this one - normally deployment is the most boring part of the mission - this time it'll be pretty exciting to watch real time.
