Цитата06/12/2019 16:35 Stephen ClarkIt's a foggy morning at Vandenberg Air Force Base, and photographers gathered at a viewing site a few miles from the launch and landing pads report they cannot currently see the rocket.Low visibility is not a weather constraint for a launch at Vandenberg, so the countdown is counting to tick toward liftoff at 7:17 a.m. PDT (10:17 a.m. EDT; 1417 GMT).
Цитата06/12/2019 16:37 Stephen ClarkThe Air Force's Western Range has confirmed it is currently "go" for today's Falcon 9 launch and landing.
Цитата06/12/2019 16:41 Stephen ClarkAll stations on the SpaceX team have confirmed they are "go" to proceed with filling of the Falcon 9 with kerosene and liquid oxygen propellants.
Цитата06/12/2019 16:42 Fueling begins Stephen Clark"Launch auto sequence has started." The countdown is starting the first steps to begin pumping propellants into the 229-foot-tall Falcon 9 at Vandenberg's Space Launch Complex 4-East.RP-1 kerosene and liquid oxygen will be pumped into the Falcon 9 rocket. The liquid oxygen is chilled to near minus 340 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 206 degrees Celsius).

Цитата06/12/2019 16:57 Stephen ClarkThe Falcon 9's second stage is now filled with RP-1 kerosene fuel. As propellants continue flowing into the first stage, liquid oxygen will begin loading into the second stage in a few minutes.

It's a foggy morning at Vandenberg Air Force Base with all camera views of the Falcon 9 rocket currently obstructed by low visiblity. But weather conditions are "go" for liftoff with the Radarsat Constellation Mission at 7:17 a.m. PDT (10:17 a.m. EDT; 1417 GMT).

Цитата06/12/2019 17:12 Stephen ClarkThe Falcon 9's guidance and navigation system is now being configured for flight.
Цитата06/12/2019 17:13 Stephen ClarkThe strongback umbilical tower is being lowered to angle of 13 degrees from the Falcon 9 to clear the rocket for launch. The procedure begins with opening of cradles gripping the rocket at attach points, then hydraulics lower the tower into position for liftoff.
Цитата06/12/2019 17:14 Stephen ClarkT-minus 3 minutes and counting. Retraction of the strongback is confirmed complete. First stage liquid oxygen loading is concluding at this time.
