Of Course I Still Love You – OCISLY
The second ASDS barge, Of Course I Still Love You (OCISLY) services launches in the Pacific Ocean and was the site of the first landing of a SpaceX Falcon 9 first stage during CRS-8, the launch of a Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station.
Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship – ASDS
An autonomous spaceport drone ship (ASDS) is an ocean-going vessel derived from a deck barge, outfitted with station-keeping engines and a large landing platform. Construction of such ships was commissioned by aerospace company SpaceX to allow for recovery of rocket first-stages at sea for high-velocity missions which do not carry enough fuel to return to the launch site after lofting spacecraft onto an orbital trajectory.

They also operate from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, usually for polar launches. Another launch site is being developed at Boca Chica, Texas.
Will there be a sonic boom?
No, sonic booms can only be heard at the cape when they return to the landing zone.
Is this an accurate launch? I am not seeing it on SpaceX website.
Until the status says “Go for launch” the date may change.
Ok, get that. Where does this information get pulled from?
Our data is provided by https://thespacedevs.com/ and we have found it to be very reliable.
Where will the barge be?
Click the link under the mission section to see the trajectory. The booster will land off the coast of Baha.
Wasn’t B1063 originally slated for last November and then delayed? What was the issue with the booster? I’m pretty sure it hasn’t flown between then and now correct?
If you have a source for the information on B1063 we will let our data provider know.
Are times local to the launch site, GMT, or to the viewer? I am EST.
If your location is available the dates and times will be displayed in your timezone.
Smooth launch SpaceX………..
