    Kinda disappointed USSF44's been pushed back to next year. I thought we had two falcon heavy launches before the end of the year, looks like they're both pushed back to next year now :(

    Been aaaaages since the last one. Also still no updates on the extended fairing, either. EDIT (other than that both nasa and space-force/nsa appear to be content that it'll be ready when they need it)

    isnt the lack of heavy launches because the satellite not being ready ?

    That's correct, both the delay to USSF44 and USSF... I'm going to get this wrong cause I've not got the schedule in front of me, but 53? fifty something anyway, both delays are because space force and the payload manufacturers are behind schedule. *jingle music* It's a boeing/northrop-grumman/lockheed-martin/maxarr thing *jingle music*
