    These are being re-used by SpaceX for their own Starlink missions, 60 sats at a time on the cheap!

    Such a killer business advantage... no way China or Russia can launch their own orbital network anytime soon.

    Boo.

    This is the first time I've been awake before 7am since this pandemic started. Welp, time to go sleep until 10 minutes before my first meeting for the day.

    Congrats to SpaceX and NASA.
    So different with Astronauts talking back to SpaceX control, so used to silent cargo missions.

    Livestream is still going and will for the 19 hours to ISS, or rewind as required.

    Edit: Livesteams split up to 3 for reviewing:
