today sucks, someone needs to ctrl+alt+del the Simulation. 

Maybe at least tomorrow will be less foggy?

Vandenberg

At its most basic, our summer marine layer is those low lying grey clouds over L.A. that are particularly prevalent between May and September.

At a little less basic, the clouds are much bigger than a dreary day at the beach. They're just the edge of a giant atmospheric system called a stratocumulus cloud deck that stretches hundreds of miles out into the Pacific.

Marine layer

While it is most common in the month of June, it can occur in surrounding months, giving rise to other colloquialisms, such as "May Gray", "No-Sky July", and "Fogust". Low-altitude stratus clouds form over the cool water of the California Current, and spread overnight into the coastal regions of California.[1]

but seriously, y’all are making it complicated. LEO Starship can just drop off a BLEO payload attached to a kick stage. Can even be a big solid for integration simplicity. Still a big potential cost savings with minimal risk vs FH.

I have no idea what SpaceX's policies are, but a lot of big companies would rather absorb the occasional loss than pay out a constant stream of insurance premium money.

About yesterday's abort, the internal F9 computer identified an off nominal reading on one sea level merlin and stopped the countdown. Today is go, 20% chance of weather violation
