    Falcon 9 v1.1 Launch 15 Sep 2013

    First and second stage on launchpad at Vandenberg Air Force Base for wet dress rehearsal:
    Rocket is noticeably taller.

    Falcon 9 v1.1 rollout, with fairing:

    Reusability Tests

    From an FAA waiver:
    This will be the first launch by SpaceX from VAFB. It will also be the first flight of the Falcon 9 v1.1 vehicle, which is larger and has greater thrust and payload capacity than SpaceX's Falcon 9 vehicle. SpaceX's Falcon 9 v1.1 launch vehicle will launch from VAFB and place the Cassiope satellite into a near-polar orbit. The launch vehicle will also carry five secondary payloads to the same orbit. The first stage will coast after stage separation, and then perform an experimental burn with three engines to reduce the entry velocity just prior to entry. Prior to landing in the water, it will perform a second experimental burn with one engine to impact the water with minimal velocity. The second stage will coast and then perform an experimental burn to depletion.

    Press Conference Tweets by Jeff Faust
    Postby rpapo Sun Sep 29, 2013 3:25 pm [at SpaceXTalk.com]
    Summary of press conference (followed through Twitter of Jeff Foust):

    (1) All satellites went into acceptable orbits.
    (2) Second stage relight had an anomaly that they already understand, and hope to fix before the SES flight, perhaps delaying it for that purpose.
    (3) First stage first relight succeeded.
    (4) First stage second relight started, but the stage "exceeded roll control" of ACS (Automatic Control System?).
    (5) Due to centrifugal effects, second relight shut down early.
    (6) They did recover portions of the first stage after splashdown.
    (7) Musk is still confident about eventually attaining full reusability. Says "all the pieces are in place".
    (8) All engines in both stages performed "slightly better" than expected.
    (9) There will be no recovery attempts for the next two missions so as to get maximum performance.
    (10) The next recovery attempt will be the CRS-3 launch (F9 1.1 #4), and they might even include the landing legs, though he wouldn't hold things up to install them on that mission.
    (11) They are working with the FAA and USAF to select potential F9R landing sites at Cape Canaveral.
    (12) They recovered video (presumably from the stage itself) of the first stage "reentry", and hope to post it later this week.
    (13) Texas site probable, but not yet final.
    (14) Canaveral Pad 39A would be used for NASA flights, and the current pad for commercial customers.
    (15) Falcon Heavy testing at McGregor probably by 2014Q2.
