Now that is some serious reuse right there.  Way to bring down the cost per launch.

If only there was a fully reuseable 2 stage vehicle, hmmmm

Edit: This one has been on the 'up next' list for so long I'm starting to forget about it.  Hopefully this is the time, and get the booster back into the process for it's next cycle.

Something interesting ... a new Space Debris notice from the NGA.  Unless I missed something, the only change to the actual hazard information is an additional hazard period for March 1 only.

Subtracting the mission duration (1 hour, 4 minutes, 39 seconds) from the scheduled deployment time (02:41:43 UTC), the scheduled launch time should be 01:37:04 UTC on March 1st (8:37:04 PM EST on February 28th).

"Press Kit" capture with OCR, this time the website was bugged for me as none of the capture apps were able to auto-scroll through the page. Had to do a manual stitch, hopefully for the next launches the page works like before...
