There's no specified launch window, and that could force SpaceX to move liftoff to October 11th if it has to scrub the launch on the 7th. "We're all very excited".
SpaceX has previously landed first stage rockets on land after Florida launches but had not done so on the West Coast.
Perhaps even more jaw-dropping than the Iridium-4 spectacle that caused quasi-hysteria throughout much of California, Falcon 9 B1048 and its upper stage companion created an extraordinary show as the booster the booster separated, flipped 180 degrees, and began its boostback burn directly into the plume of S2's Merlin Vacuum engine. The company views ground-based rocket landings as better for expediting reuse, since drone ship landings require time to return to port.

Chinese Wary as Putin Visits India for Arms Deal
Last year India and China had a military standoff over a Himalayan plateau claimed by Beijing and Bhutan, a close ally of India. Putin said the two countries have agreed to step up cooperation in combating the menace of terrorism and drug trafficking.
The launch is scheduled for shortly after 7:20 p.m., Vandenberg Air Force base officials said in an advisory. But that's possible only when launching relatively light payloads to not-too-distant orbits; on other missions, there's not enough fuel left for the Falcon 9 first stage to maneuver all the way back to land. This facility, which SpaceX leases from the Air Force, used to feature two launch pads, known as SLC-4 East and SLC-4 West. SpaceX has converted the western one into a landing site and launches Falcon 9s from the eastern one.
The rocket, built by Elon Musk's SpaceX, was carrying the satellite SAOCOM 1A. SpaceX has several other missions planned for this year, including the Falcon 9 launches of another 10 Iridium Next satellites, Es'hailSat's Es'hail-2, and the U.S. Air Force's first GPS-3 satellite. The second satellite will be SAOCOM 1B.
SAOCOM 1, together with the Italian COSMO-SkyMed X-Band SAR constellation, make up the Italian-Argentine Satellite System for Emergency Management, or SIASGE. Its name is short for Satelite Argentino de Observacion Con Microondas.
