SpaceX has got the approval to launch 10 Starlink satellites on this mission.

 ??? Making it Starlink v1.0 L17 ? With L17 becoming L18...

From past SpaceX nomenclature schemes. It could be Starlink v1.0 R1. R=rideshare.  ;)

This is the Transporter 1 mission.  Throwing a few Starlinks on top doesn't change the name of the mission.

[Space News] Iceye to launch three SAR satellites on SpaceX rideshare flight
Quote
Iceye is preparing to send three Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites into orbit on the SpaceX Falcon 9 small satellite rideshare mission scheduled for launch Jan. 21.
...
In a Jan. 12 news release, Iceye said it “has big plans for 2021” and the upcoming “launch is just the beginning of a multi-satellite deployment strategy for the upcoming year.”

Iceye tends to wait until flights are imminent before revealing plans to launch satellites. Iceye is building another eight satellites.

Delfi-PQ will unfortunately not fly on the upcoming  Transporter-1 launch... stay tuned...

This was one of the PocketQubes in cluster 3 that was going to fly on the Momentus Plaza Deck. So I take it that the Plaza Deck payloads are delayed alongside Vigoride.

[Taiwan News] Taiwan to launch domestically made satellites into space
Quote
Wu said two of the CubeSats, YUSAT ("Yushan," 玉山) and IDEASSat ("Flying Squirrel," 飛鼠), will be transported into space by a SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Jan. 21. He said this will be the first time Taiwan launched its CubeSats.

According to NSPO, the YUSAT CubeSat can monitor ground traffic as well as improve maritime navigation safety. The IDEASSat CubeSat is capable of monitoring the thermal, chemical, and electro-dynamic structure of the ionosphere while detecting plasma irregularities that can disrupt satellite and terrestrial radio communications.

From the pictures in the article looks like IDEASSat is 3U and YUSAT maybe 1.5U or 2U?

edit:  These may have been in the ISILaunch deployers, which may or may not all still be on the flight...

Sounds like several of the other PocketQubes have reported a delay, so the Alba Orbital cluster probably was removed in its entirety.  There were also cubesat deployers from ISILaunch on the Plaza Deck.

As Momentus Vigoride 1 was dropped from the launch, all payloads, which were to be deployed from it are also not on this launch:

These include AuroraSat 1, VZLUsat 2, Alba Orbital Cluster [SATTLA 2, EASAT, HADES, Grizu-263a, LibertyQube 1, Pycubed, TRSI 2, Tartan Artibeus], SW1FT

Just FYI, some of those PocketQubes were demanifested and new ones were added. Alba Orbital announced cluster 3's satellite list after integration (https://www.albaorbital.com/integration) (so all of the PQ's will have to wait until Vigoride gets manifested.)  The PocketQubes that will fly on cluster 3 are: Grizu-263a, Delfi-PQ, TRSI-2, EASAT-2, HADES, Sattla-2, Unicorn 1, Unicorn 2A, and Unicorn 2D.

First satellite appears to be THEA, launched on mission SSO-A.

Quote
THEA, a 3U CubeSat built by SpaceQuest, Ltd. of Fairfax, VA to demonstrate a spectrum survey payload developed by Aurora Insight, Washington DC. The objective is to qualify Aurora’s payload, consisting of a proprietary spectrometer and components, and demonstrate the generation of relevant measurements of the spectral environment (UHF, VHF, S-band). The results of the experiment will inform future development of advanced instrumentation by Aurora and component development by SpaceQuest.

Of Course I Still Love You droneship is outbound for the Transporter-1 mission.

Finn Falgout is towing OCISLY 553 km downrange. This will be the first droneship landing on the CCSFS southern launch corridor.

That would make for a 46 day turnaround, the second fastest ever.

It might be first, don't rush horses.
It will takes another 10 days (definitely a delays for something not insignificant) for Starlink L16 to be lost to this
My parents was just being born when the Apollo program is over. Why we are still stuck in this stagnation, let's go forward again
