A bit of rocket porn from the guys over at NSF:

THERE SHE IS. THE FALCON HEAVY ON THE TEL.

Oh, it's in the hanger? I thought it was on the truck there...

Any rumors on the FH launch date beyond unset 'January' date?

I'm planning on setting aside 3 days (in case of the launch being held) so I can visit the cape and see it in person.

I'm considering livestreaming it for fun; and yes I know that SpaceX will also be livestreaming the launch but mine will be from my perspective, without commentary and potentially cluttering UI.

Hey, just keeping with the long-established tradition of grainy porn...

In other news, Falcon Heavy static fire delayed due to freak snowstorm.

Is there a good resource to follow in order to find out when FH static fire will be? I'm leaving for Daytona tomorrow and I'd hate to miss it.

I would think you’ve got a few days, at least. The static fire won’t be this week, sadly. What we will see first (maybe this week) is FH rolled out and erected at the pad for fit and fueling checks. Might even need more than one, the static fire will come some time after. (Read: days)

People are saying now (space reporters) that the Static fire will be very early in January (first week), with a launch following at a pretty normal interval after that (a week or so).

I'm out of likes but I support this.

Amusingly, my initial plan, back in college, was to double major in physics and journalism so I could become a super-credentialed science writer.

Reality slapped me in the face pretty quick and I dropped the journalism major, but it was always an idea in the back of my head.
