L-1 forecast still looking good for 's next Starlink flight, which is on for Tuesday (yes, tomorrow). Still waiting on static fire. Liftoff from LC 40 at 1159 ET (1659 UTC). If on time, that'll mark ~49 hours between in-flight abort and Starlink.

It is coming up quickly! Still lots to do though. The last week included EVA and robotics training as well as medical testing and training. We also had a day of lessons here in Houston. Headed back to California next week. More training!
