    Sounding like they got to their fill percentages they wanted to see- 67% Lh2 and 63% Lox and the leaks they saw were in the allowable range.

    They may isolate some areas and pump in helium, obviously another very small molecule to do a leak check that way after the torques are done. Sounding like they are moving forward.

    I should know today because we are all set for hydrazine skirt de-servicing on Friday if they are proceeding towards a launch.

    Deservicing the skirts is pushed to Monday 2nd shift, sounds like they are trying to push forward. Wdr5 up in the air at this point. Questionable on weekend support I see this getting pushed.

    Be interesting to see if they do it quicker than the BC tower.

    I figure they will, they tend to do things quicker and with less components on the subsequent iterations.

    I can't wait to see either tower with the black clading.

    Pretty cool day today, I got to watch X fairings get mated, I've got a Nilesat 301 patch coming to me and I think I'll be getting a Hangar X tour in the next few weeks.

    I heard there was actually more stuff pre fitted on this tower. Maybe I’m mistaken.

    There are some blast shields preinstalled on this one that were added after the fact on the first. Probably quite a bit more too. SpaceX likes doing revisions. It's arguably one of their strongest traits.

    That, and being willing to step away from old/obsolete hardware. One of the craziest things about the space shuttles was that each was slightly different, with their own quirks and capabilities depending on when/how they were manufactured.
