To which class does the one York Transport satellite onboard belong, A or B? I remember there should be one of each class left to be launched among the York ones.

Type B, their Type A is staying on the ground.

A 24-hour time-lapse of Falcon 9 rolling out, going vertical, fading into a lovely sunset, and awakening to a stunning Vandenberg fog this morning before the launch scrubbed.

Second attempt of the Space Development Agency’s second Tranche 0 mission will take place tomorrow, Friday 9/1 at 7:26 a.m. PT.
