#Iridium8 Update: As you may have guessed, the #SSOA launch slide had a domino effect & pushed us back a few days. But, we're happy to report the 1st pair of #IridiumNEXT satellites are onsite @ VAFB & in processing for a Jan 7, 2019 target launch date!

Preparations continue for our final (historic!) launch 8 on January 7th. Final 2 (of 10) sats just left the factory (we track them by Iridium IoT) for the base; 6 of 10 are already mated. Everything needed is there - just need to put it all together for a launch in 24 days!

... this raises a question about the potential impact on the launch date for Iridium's final launch with Falcon 9.

ULA Delta IV Heavy NROL-71 will Launch NET Jan. 6, 2019

(Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., Dec. 28, 2018) -- The United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy carrying the NROL-71 mission will launch no earlier than Sunday, January 6, 2019. The mission will launch from Space Launch Complex-6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

ЦитатаDelta 4-Heavy launch with spy satellite pushed back to January
December 28, 2018Stephen Clark

...
A Falcon 9 rocket built and operated by ULA rival SpaceX was previously set for liftoff from a nearby launch pad at Vandenberg on Jan. 7 carrying 10 Iridium voice and data relay satellites, the last of a set of 75 upgraded commercial Iridium spacecraft launched by SpaceX since January 2017. Iridium CEO Matt Desch wrote Thursday on Twitter that the launch remained scheduled for Jan. 7 at 7:53 a.m. PST (10:53 a.m. EST; 1553 GMT).

The Air Force-run Western Range at Vandenberg typically requires a day or two to reconfigure safety and tracking assets between rockets, raising questions about whether the Falcon 9 launch was postponed, or if the Delta 4-Heavy on a national security mission might take priority over a commercial SpaceX launch.

In a subsequent tweet Friday after ULA's announcement, Desch wrote that he has not heard of any delays in Iridium's launch. The 10 satellites, built by Thales Alenia Space and Northrop Grumman, are at Vandenberg, fueled with maneuvering propellant, mated to their dispensers and encapsulated inside the Falcon 9's payload shroud, Desch said.

The NROL-71 and Iridium missions will be the first launches of 2019 for ULA and SpaceX.

Meanwhile, in "VandyLand":

We're waiting on the Static Fire test for Falcon 9 on SLC-4E ahead of the Iridium-8 launch. Currently understood to be NET Friday.

Static fire test of Falcon 9 complete. Working with customer to determine best launch opportunity to complete the Iridium NEXT constellation; will announce targeted launch date once confirmed.

So the Static Fire has been conducted, but as intimated earlier, the 8th is no longer the launch date. Probably a delay of a few days.
