I wonder when we will see a rideshare manifest? 👀 The day before launch?

Any mention of an Alba Orbital Cluster?

How many payloads that we thought would/might be aboard Transporter-9 will ride this launch instead?

Yonhap News seems to be reporting a 48 hours slip to this launch (to December 1st UTC/2nd KST) due to weather, although I am not sure Internet translation is accurate - they are likely to have an English version of this article out later - and don't see any changes to related NOTAMs yet (I can't check the marine navigation warnings): https://www.yna.co.kr/view/AKR20231128086300504

Well the ESA webcast shown a few posts above also shows a December 1st launch date now, so that's confirmed.

Is there any chance that the other Korean sat CAS500-4 is also on this launch?
LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

SpaceX is targeting Friday, December 1 at 10:19 a.m. PT for a Falcon 9 launch of the Korea 425 mission on to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

A live webcast of this mission will begin on X @SpaceX about 15 minutes prior to liftoff. Watch live.

There are a total of 25 spacecraft on board this mission, including KOREA's 425, Space BD’s ISL48, SITAEL’s uHETSat, D-Orbit’s ION SCV Daring Diego, York Space Systems’ Bane, and PlanetIQ’s GNOMES-4.

This is the 17th flight of the first stage booster (B1061) supporting this mission, which previously launched Crew-1, Crew-2, SXM-8, CRS-23, IXPE, Transporter-4, Transporter-5, Globalstar FM15, ISI EROS C-3, and seven Starlink missions. Following stage separation, the first stage will land on Landing Zone 4 (LZ-4) at Vandenberg Space Force Base.

Edit: So the idea of >15 flight boosters only flying internal missions didnt last very long lol. Love to see it.

"Countdown to launch: Australian-made SpIRIT nanosatellite
The Australian-made SpIRIT nanosatellite is scheduled for launch this week, which means we’re getting very close to the in-orbit demonstration of some amazing home-grown technology.

The SpIRIT mission has been led by the University of Melbourne, with key Australian project partners Inovor Technologies, Neumann Space, Nova Systems and SITAEL Australia.

SpIRIT is the first Australian satellite to carry a foreign space agency’s scientific instrument as its main payload, namely the Italian Space Agency’s HERMES X-ray detector.

Check out this video to meet some of the scientists who brought the SpIRIT mission to life.

The Australian Space Agency is proud to support the SpIRIT mission with almost $7 million in funding."

PDF of online press kit. Unfortunately, as Korea 425 is a military spy satellite, SpaceX will only be showing the landing sequence after fairing separation. Deployment times for the commercial satellites have not been provided.

Can someone post the Twitter livestream link? Thanks.

The SpaceX web site has not posted the actually broadcast link on the mission web link of:

https://www.spacex.com/launches/mission/?missionId=korea425

I'll try again later tonight at midnight my time.  I will not be up (maybe) for this launch.  I will post the other video links I have later tonight.

µHETSat originally was manifested aboard a Virgin Orbit LauncherOne flight, followed by a Vega SSMS rideshare:
NET April 2021. SSMS rideshares include

PRETTY
RadCube
SUNSTORM
uHETSat

https://esamultimedia.esa.int/docs/corporate/DGPressConf2021JosefAschbacher.pdf

µHETsat was originally booked on a Virgin Orbit LauncherOne flight.

However, µHETSat was not on VV19 launch manifest:
Rideshares are:
- BRO-4 (Unseelabs)
- RADCUBE
- SUNSTORM
- LEDSAT

And, it was carried forward as a future Arianespace piggyback or rideshare payload afterwards:
2022
Piggybacked:

TBD - µHETsat - Vega / Vega C - Kourou ZLV

MDQUBESAT-2 (apparently) not onboard Transporter-9:

Thrilled to announce the successful integration of @innova_space's MDQUBESAT-2 pico-satellite 🛰️✅

MDQUBESAT-2 is a 2P PocketQube launching with us in Q4 2023 as part of a picosat constellation for global IoT data services ▶️ https://ow.ly/bBK350PG7nx

Lynk Tower 5 and 6 not onboard Transporter-9:
Lynk has two sats launching this month.  Not entirely sure which flight.
Quote
Lynk will launch Lynk Towers 5 and 6 on a SpaceX November 2023 launch.5 Once Lynk Towers 5 and 6 have launched and begun operations, Lynk will be operating five of its ten authorized satellites, consistent with Paragraph 34

Lynk plans to launch the remaining five satellites in the constellation by April 2024.

L3Harris RapidEO satellite (apparently) not onboard Transporter-9:
Quote
Kongsberg Satellite Services AS (“KSAT”) provides this information pursuant to Section 25.120 of the Commission’s rules1 to supplement its request for 30 day special temporary authority (“STA”) for its earth station in Maui, Hawaii (“Station”) to provide launch and early operation support for the RapidEO satellite (“Satellite”) a satellite operated by L3Harris Technologies Inc. (“L3Harris”) for a U.S. government classified program.

The Satellite is scheduled to be launched on the SpaceX Transporter 9 mission, planned for November 7, 2023. Grant of the STA by November 6, 2023 is needed to meet the communication needs for this classified satellite program.

GNOMES-4:
GNOMES 4 license was granted on November 6, but that seems kinda late to be on [Transporter-9].

The ION SCV could be -012; that serial number was skipped over for the Transporter-9 payload.

Several cubesats and/or pocketsats could be aboard the "Daring Diego," including perhaps an Alba Orbital Cluster?

What is ISL48?
