Do we have a launch time? Perhaps made available to us via NOTAMs?

As terrible as this year has been in other areas, it has been tremendously exciting for spaceflight. May our journey into space always continue to give us such hope!

Email update this morning to the mailing list - no new information, but a good summary:

Quote
Watch the fourth flight of the same New Shepard hardware this Sunday. Liftoff is planned for approximately 10:15 am ET and the live webcast starts half an hour earlier at 9:45 am ET at www.blueorigin.com.
 
 On this flight, we’ll intentionally fail one string of parachutes on the capsule. There are three strings of chutes and two of the three should still deploy nominally and, along with our retrothrust system, safely land the capsule. Works on paper, and this test is designed to validate that. We’ll also use this flight to continue pushing the envelope on the booster.
 
 As always, this is a development test flight and anything can happen.
 
 Watching a rocket launch (and rocket landing!) might add a little extra fun with the kids on Father’s Day -- enjoy.
 
 Gradatim Ferociter!

We're assuming https://www.blueorigin.com/ will change to a player (like Arianespace do) or the notification at the top about a webcast will become clickable closer the time. All a new thing for all concerned!
