Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming launch: It can occur no earlier than March 29th, because the launch of an Atlas V rocket has slipped to March 27th, and it requires about 48 hours for the Air Force to reconfigure its downrange tracking system for a launch from a different pad.

Further changes to the Atlas launch schedule could push the SpaceX launch into early April.
