Main Engine Cut Off

SpaceX Doubleheader

SpaceX delayed BulgariaSat-1 due to a fairing valve issue, which sets up a tight launch schedule next weekend: BulgariaSat-1 on Friday, Iridium-2 on Sunday.

Back in April, ULA announced layoffs at Vandenberg, which seemed to indicate that they dropped their launch team on the west coast. Two months later, it looks like SpaceX has two independent launch teams up and running.

Feeling good about my dinner bet.
