So launch should be at: 19:01:07? UTC + 1:03:49 = 20:04:56 UTC?

B1049 is truly an incredible booster, and tomorrows launch makes it better.
It's been roughly 1000 days since B1049 debuted. Roughly 1000 days before that, SpaceX landed a Falcom 9 for the first time. Roughly 1 in 25 of all satellites ever launched were launched by B1049.
