If the delay grows beyond a few days, SpaceX may slide in a Starlink launch instead.

A. If Go Beyond returned the port we already know that the delay is more than a few days.
B. If the want to slip in another starlink, Go Beyond would not return to port.

Catch 22 logic.

Any ideas why there's a scrub today? I wonder what caused the week long delay, and if pushing it until tomorrow is realistic or if it'll be another week delay.

Any longer and they'll have to swap with starlink.

Seems like this mission has had basically zero information recently.

Map from the NGA notices. Like USSF-62, there appears to be a second stage dogleg at some point.
