SpaceX Launch Schedule Thread
« on: 10/24/2013 08:20 PM »
Over the years I've really liked the consolidated launch schedule thread:
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=15134.0

Everything is in one place, you get a history of slips and an eye on the bigger picture.

What popped into my mind the other day is that we could pin a similar thread into the SpaceX Missions section, but add in dates/data that right now are spread all over the place.  For example:

Launch 23 - NET XX/XX/XXXX
1st stage left California - XX/XX/XXXX
2nd stage left California - XX/XX/XXXX
1st Stage tested in Texas - XX/XX/XXXX
2nd Stage testing in Texas - XX/XX/XXXX
1st Stage arrived at launch site - XX/XX/XXXX
2nd Stage arrived at launch site - XX/XX/XXXX
Spacecraft/Payload at launch site - XX/XX/XXXX
WDR - XX/XX/XXXX
(and eventually) Launched - XX/XX/XXXX
(Splashdown when appropriate)

Having a single dedicated thread with this info for each launch would both allow for big picture tracking of where they currently are, and in addition make history -> predictions data much easier to handle.

Anybody willing to fill in data for the next three launches?

I have to say, despite the unlikelihood, that the most convenient method of conveying this would be via a shareable calendar.

I currently subscribe to:-
F1 calendar
and
UK holidays

Would be incredible to be able to subscribe to a calendar that listed space events either solid or speculated in the future (and even what's happened in the past, as I think it could be a fantastic historical resource).

cheers, Martin

That level of detail is something we're only allowed to use in L2 (and not even that much on the stages transports for security reasons), so this thread in the public areas is DOA.
