echostar?
Yup.

I just learned echostar's HQ are just a few miles away from me.

thats pretty sweet.   Amazing they are able to launch again so fast if they do in 10 days, but i guess they should have a stock pile of cores since they didnt really need to make any tweaks to hardware, just procedures.

So i guess that means the new launch site is ready, thatll make it even more exciting

Oh I hadn't even thought about that. This was my first launch from California, and next week is the first from 39A

Yup SES 10.

Launch order is Echostar, ISS resupply, and then SES 10. February hopefully.

SES 10 net Feb 22.

Seems like a launch every two weeks is their goal.

Heavy could be in April. That's not too bad.

Dragon 2 should also be this year.
