Is Tomorrow The Big Day For SpaceX’s SN11

It could be – they’ve done a couple of static fires and they seemed to go well, no signs of any engine abnormalities.

There are road closures planned for tomorrow, as well as TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions) for tomorrow and Saturday.

Elon Musk is on his way to Texas.

The notice regarding road closures says that they’re for a static fire and a flight – that’s unusual, since the flight is usually a day or two after the static fire, not later in the day. We’ll see, but who am I to think that something outrageous and never done before won’t be done by SpaceX?

Keep tuned in tomorrow to the Lab Padre feed on YouTube, the NASASpaceflight channel (not actually associated with NASA, BTW) on YouTube, or, about ten minutes before launch, on SpaceX’s own feed on their website at

(I’m betting they launch about 1:45 to 1:55 in the afternoon, just because I’ll be somewhere I can’t watch for a couple hours around that time. Murphy’s Law…)
