zuma fairing separation

zuma fairing separation (0 min 59 sec)

2 halves are clearly visible in the enhanced uslaunchreport footage. There are 2 gas plumes & the 2 blobs move from right to left as they separate. The only thing you could presume is the bottom half not moving far enough away to clear the payload, but they proceeded with later launches as if nothing happened.

Meanwhile, the FH static fire was reduced from 15 to 12 seconds. The shuttle got 20 seconds, but faster data fidelity probably reduced the need.
