Issues with at least one of the two engines BO delivered to ULA. Hint: It started leaking fuel on the ULA test stand.  :facepalm:
And BO is asking for more money  :O  ;/  :facepalm:

SpaceX is targeting Friday, August 19 for a Falcon 9 launch of 53 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is at 3:21 p.m. ET (19:21 UTC), and a backup opportunity is available on Saturday, August 20 at 2:59 p.m. ET (18:59 UTC).

The first stage booster supporting this mission previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, and three Starlink missions. Following stage separation, Falcon 9ís first stage will return to Earth and land on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Just another day at the office for SpaceX.   =)
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

BoeLock really screwed up getting in bed with Jeff Who.

Heh, I should build a Vulcan-Centaur in KSP but engine it with Raptors and send screenshots to ULA. =D

Whoops
Go back to 10:25:20 CDT and watch the chopsticks crunch up some scaffolding.
May have to full screen to see clearly.

Looks like workers arriving at the pad I guess to inspect things.

After depressurizing the lines after the crunch looks like they're back at it. so I guess they figured no harm, to the test at least, done.

This is what the SpaceX/T-Mobile get-together was all about.
T-M will use Starlink sats to provide service in areas not served by cell phone towers.
Musk also has a Plan B for Starlink 2 Sats if Starship is delayed. They will downsize Starlink 2 Sats a bit to enable them to be launched on F9.
