F9/Demo 2: Along with the FRR results, SpaceX plans to test fire the Falcon 9's main engines Friday afternoon and the crew will participate in a dress-rehearsal countdown at the launch pad Saturday

Edit to add:

Quote
SpaceX is targeting a 4:33pm EDT T-0 for the static fire tomorrow, the same time as liftoff May 27.

The crew’s dry run in the Dragon spacecraft Saturday will be timed in conjunction with the same 4:33pm T-0, but will end before the start of propellant loading into the Falcon 9.

Camera pointed at pad 39A and stream running. Fingers crossed connectivity holds for the next several days, but will be here in case it needs a reset.

PS Probably going to start a new thread either from the Static Fire or at least ahead of launch....but yeah, the launch day events won't be on "page 15" of this thread. :)

Also, check you're not posting a duplicate post, or some crappy news report with dramatic "OMG, weather might scrub it!" video.

Still the FRR announcement banner up on NASA TV
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."
