SpaceX Manifest Updates and Discussion Thread 4
« on: 05/04/2016 05:30 PM »
Discussion of the manifest, and updates. The best guess at the current manifest is in this post. 
Discussion of the table format should be done here: SpaceX Manifest Table Format Discussion
This table is now being maintained by gongora

The biggest question is if we know for sure that the RTLS pad/infrastructure will be in place in time for Formosat/Sherpa and how soon we might get a launch date for the west coast.

Why does this update need its own thread? Are you going to start a new thread for every change?

This new thread is started by starhawk92 so now he can edit the first post in place, and update the subject line...

edit: maybe not... see below...

No, it's been hashed over pretty well for a few weeks.  Probably will only update after a major event (like a launch) or when a lot of smaller updates accumulate.  Each new publication of the table will get it's own thread.  Senior Members and Moderators know about this.  If this does not work out, we'll go back to the old way.

Probably going to rename this thread and lock (3).... by having the lead post be Starhawk92's they can edit the post similar to how the abort scrubs is handled and it is easy to find since it's the lead.

(https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=40049.0 is thread three)

Mass for JCSat 14 (JCSat 2B) is 4696.2 kg

Source: Federal Communication Commission

Click on "Attachment Menu", then on "Attachment Schedule S Documents". At the last page it says "Mass of spacecraft & fuel at launch: 4696.2 kg".

Oh, a separate thread for each update? This doesn't seem consistent with what Lar wrote below (and he's a mod).

edit: I meant below the quote, so, above this!  ;D

I guess I should talk to starhawk92 about this but I assume they were going to edit the header post with updates. NOT a separate thread for each update.... that's way too many threads.

Edit: All good, that's how it will be, the header post will have the latest. I put a link back to thread 3 in the header as well.

Props to Kabloona, who estimated it at 4500kg.

So, definitely lighter than SES-9, will be interesting to see how this affects the recovery profile (or not).

For comparison: on space.skyrocket.de there is also a manifest for the Falcon 9 v1.2 and for the Falcon Heavy.

When you click on the links for the payloads you get nice information and references to sources.

This article was interesting from the standpoint that MDA executives see a trend starting that has two prongs: GSO sats are getting heavier (those not on contract yet) and the LEO constellation sats are multiplying rapidly.
http://spacenews.com/mda-corp-says-commercial-satcom-bidding-is-at-record-high-level/

For SpaceX this implication is that there will be an upswing in use of FH for GSO sats and a possible increase in launches out of VAFB for commercial customers probably using the now heavier LEO capable F9. Also the impact on the manifest would be that the LEO constellations would probably launch sooner than the new heavier GSO sats. I would not expect the wave of larger GSO to be NET 2019 and more likely 2020. They would probably grow in size to be up to the capabilities of a Vulcan/ACES or Ariane 64 whichever is lower. This size would also put them at the edge or beyond F9 capabilities meaning a lot more FH launches in the 2019 and latter time frame.

Four missions in May?! Oh that would be great if it were true.

Half of that will still be great. And just one will be fine (as long as it is followed by another in June).

On April 29 spaceflightnow.com:
"Falcon 9/Eutelsat 117 West B & ABS 2A delayed; Falcon 9/Thaicom 8 moved forward"

They've swapped the order of these flights. Thaicom 8 as "late May" and Eutelsat 117 in June.

yes, "-" or "NR" where is definite no recovery would be nice. Unknown would stay blank.
