    Default SpaceX gets ready for Falcon Heavy #1

    Now that the first Falcon 9 v1.1 launch is out of the way, and 2 more are set.for rapid-fire flights in November & December at KSC, Vandenberg is getting a new high bay like KSC's.





    This is for the vertical integration of the payload, payload adapter and fairing for some national security payloads.

    They need to get it done because the next launcher up to bat at Vandenberg is ... drumroll ... Falcon Heavy #1.

    They're also putting the finishing touches on the *massive* Falcon Heavy test stand at McGregor Texas, which is partially underground to limit the noise townsfolk will have to put up with.

    That MoFu is gonna be LOUD!
