I said post mission that I saw no need for another uncrewed demonstration prior to a crewed flight, but this story is changing my mind on that. Just how many ways can Boeing screw up?
Here’s the story from Emilee Speck.
There’s no instantaneous launch window, and while launch weather looks good, recovery weather looks maybe iffy for the beginning of the window. I think the odds of it actually launching at the beginning of the window are sufficiently low that I’m not going to drag myself out of bed at 0430 on a Saturday morning to view it.
I made the right choice; scrubbed for weather.

Looking forward to the New Year will all of my readers. I expect it to be an exciting year for the space industry.
Bob Zimmerman has a year-end assessment. I expect next year to be a very exciting one, perhaps the most so since 1969.
