Why the delay?  39A is available, yes?

has CRS25 on the same day.

Seems unlikely they would do both on same day so perhaps it is an either /or : ie if CRS25 is able to launch on 7th they will do that but if there are further delays to CRS25 then they will do 4-21 from pad 40 keeping pad 39A available for CRS-25.

Is that a possible plan?

So Starlink 4-21 has been delayed for over a week from June 26th to July 7th. Why the long slip?

I’d understand if it’s a 24-hour delay from out of nowhere, but 11 days?

If it is not ready for 26/27th it may not be ready for 28th-30th either. There is also possible clash with SES22 on 28th.

Note the change of pad.

NextSF has CRS 25 on 7th from 39A. That will take priority so the pad 39A that it was planned for cannot be used in ~9 days before based on minimum turnaround time for that pad.

Pad 40 planned use on 28th so 7th 9 days later is about as early as it could be planned from pad 40.

I doubt they will do 4-21 on same day as CRS-25 more likely to be one or the other or neither on 7th July.

Thanks Raul for posting these NOTAMS. It is puzzling to me that the splashdown areas are often made up of multiple areas with shared coordinates, rather than a single area.

This Starlink launch appears now to precede SpX-25.  No date/time change to this launch.
Ben Cooper has now (25 June version) reversed this order putting 4-21 first. No 7th just "July TBA" so on the order logic and what looks like a deliberate change, it is probably going to be later than 7th. (On 8th it would only be ~5.5 hours later than 4-21 which might be a bit close?)
Yeah I believe it's been delayed again. I don't know why but the dates are changing wildly it seems. I'll try to keep an ear on what's the outlook if it is not published elsewhere before.

This appears to be an update of just the boost phase launch hazard area. The old area is a paler pink quadrilateral, the new area in red.

SpaceX Drone Ship "Just Read The Instructions" heading out to catch another Falcon 9 Booster.

Love the flex of the sideways tug.

Payload 53? Starlink satellites to 53.2 degree inclination on a northeastern trajectory.  Initial orbit of 325 x 337 km x 53.2 degrees?

Why question marks? Don't we know by now for sure?

Possibility of unannounced rideshare payloads with every upcoming Starlink launch.  ;)
