Here's a new notice with the same obsolete information, but note that last line. I don't recall seeing anything like that previously. It was probably included by accident, but I like it and hope it becomes a regular thing!

Oops, brain fart.
I was told this is the reserved zone to ditch the 1st stage booster if boost-back burn fails.

Watch SpaceX's 29th Cargo Launch to the International Space Station (Official NASA Broadcast)

Quote
Scheduled for Nov 9, 2023  #SpaceStation #NASA #Science
SpaceX's 29th cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station is scheduled to lift off at 8:28 p.m. EST on Thursday, Nov. 9 (0128 UTC Nov. 10), from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

This uncrewed launch of SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft will carry a new laser data communication investigation device, a study on the effects of spaceflight on ovulation, research on the respiratory system, an infrared instrument to measure atmospheric gravity waves, and essential supplies for our astronauts living and working aboard the orbiting laboratory.

NASA Invites Public to Share Excitement of SpaceX’s Launch to Station

NASA Communications
NOV 07, 2023
ARTICLE

NASA is inviting the public to take part in virtual activities ahead of the launch of SpaceX’s 29th commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station. Liftoff of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft is targeted for no earlier than 8:28 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 9, from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The mission will carry scientific research, technology demonstrations, crew supplies, and hardware to the space station to support its Expedition 70 crew. The science on board includes NASA’s ILLUMA-T (Integrated Laser Communications Relay Demonstration Low Earth Orbit User Modem and Amplifier Terminal), which will demonstrate the use of laser communications systems to transmit data in space, and AWE (Atmospheric Waves Experiment), designed to study bands of light in Earth’s atmosphere and improve our understanding of space weather in the upper atmosphere.

Members of the public can register to attend the launch virtually. As a virtual guest, you have access to curated resources, schedule changes, and mission-specific information delivered straight to your inbox. Following each activity, virtual guests will receive a commemorative stamp for their virtual guest passport.

The live launch broadcast with commentary will begin at 8 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 9, and will air on NASA Television, YouTube, X, the NASA App, and the agency’s website. Learn how to stream NASA TV through a variety of platforms. For more information about the mission, visit NASA’s launch blog to learn more.

Weather officials with @SpaceForceDoD are forecasting 95% go for Thursday’s launch of the @NASA + @SpaceX #CRS29 mission to the @Space_Station!

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft are targeting a launch time of 8:28pm ET from Launch Complex 39A:

Weather 95% Favorable for NASA’s SpaceX Launch from Kennedy

Weather officials with Cape Canaveral Space Force Station’s 45th Weather Squadron predict a 95% chance of favorable weather conditions for liftoff of the 29th commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station from NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A in Florida, scheduled for 8:28 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 9. The primary weather concern is the thick cloud layers rule.

Packed with more than 6,500 pounds of cargo, SpaceX’s Dragon will deliver scientific research, technology demonstrations, crew supplies, and hardware to the International Space Station to support its Expedition 70 crew, including NASA’s Integrated Laser Communications Relay Demonstration Low Earth Orbit User Modem and Amplifier Terminal (ILLUMA-T) and Atmospheric Waves Experiment (AWE).

Arrival to the station is scheduled for approximately 5:20 a.m. EST Saturday, Nov. 11. The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft will dock autonomously to the space-facing port of the station’s Harmony module.

The spacecraft is expected to spend about one month attached to the orbiting laboratory before it returns to Earth with research and about 3,800 pounds of return cargo, splashing down off the coast of Florida.

has 6-27 and Transporter-9 but not CRS-29? Is that strange?

Edit Never mind it is there now.

Fog is obscuring the normal rollout view this morning. It appears Dragon is now just passing the Starship launch tower

Edit to add: view near the pad, with better lighting, is clearer

L-1 weather forecast. 95% 'Go' for November 9/10. 90% 'Go' for November 10/11. All Additional Risk Criteria are Low.

Falcon and Dragon have gone vertical at 39A.
