question for you doc
will the shutdown of your governement have any effect on the launch of this mission ?
and of further mission for SPACEX and or other launch providers ?
SES: We'll wait for SpaceX details on non-reignition of Falcon 9 upper stage before shipping SES-8. Anyway Cape closed w/ govt shutdown...
The shutdown of the U.S. government has rendered moot the date of SES-8

It's in the news now as well that SES gave a green light to have SES-8 shipped to the Cape on October 2nd!

Hmm, that might be watchable for me... DST change comming up should push this to before midnight for me :)
Also, DocM. Could you please tell more about that Delta II hangar? Is it close to their launch complex? Will they ship approved stages there or also payloads? Etc :)
Sweet, didn't know about that hanger before. Tnx :)
Did know about the Pad 39A & Brownsville developments. To bad that the shutdown is now going to even further drag that GAO ruling on BO's protest :( About Brownsville, I had hoped SpaceX would have made it final already... but I guess they are waiting for the final version of the EIS by the FAA before announcing. Do they own enough plots of land yet to develop all desired structures?

Falcon9 / SES-8 now supposedly NET 22nd of November!?

I noticed here that the NET date for Falcon9/SES-8 moved to the 25th!
This confirmed and what would the reason be? Spaceflightnow.com's schedule doesn't show this change!
