[i]At a Sept. 26 briefing, Bill Gerstenmaier, SpaceX vice president for build and flight reliability, said the company had already started preparations for the upgrades needed at SLC-40 for cargo and crew launches. "We've already started the work to begin the preparations for pad 40. We've ordered some hardware, put some contracts into place," he said.
He didn't elaborate on the work needed to prepare SLC-40 for cargo and crew missions. "We'll do cargo first. We can do that fairly easily," he said. "It gives us some flexibility to move some things off 39A, which helps us balance launches off both pads. We'll add crew at the right time."[/i]
