Elon should sell bits of his crashed starships.

I'd buy one for my kids.

Hold on declaring a winner of the Starship bingo. Elon did say the crater was in the right spot. Did SN11 blow up in the air or upon impacting the pad? %$#! fog

If a piece of a rocket landed on my property, I sure as heck would not give it back.  Unless it was hazardous.

SpaceX is planning to rollout Starship SN15 as early as Monday. In preparation for its arrival, a hydraulic ram has been installed at Suborbital Pad A to simulate Raptor forces against its new Thrust Puck.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN-9dgJm59M

This is an interesting angle and worthy of discussion, but I just could not digest AA's format for this discussion.  Constantly breaking train of thought to thank whatever patron throws a buck into the chatroom is no way to have a content driven presentation, especially when you then have to also add praise for each region of the country/world that each donor is from.

Evidently the mass fractions are so close, and the efficiency of Raptor so high, that this scope of reusability is just not possible with any other chemical rocket engine.  Merlin, BE-4, RS-25, F1, whatever.  Can't do it without full flow staged combustion.  Which has never been done before Raptor.

What we have going on here is on par with the end of the turboprop and the rise of the jet engine, but also at the same time the peak of chemical rocket propulsion.  There is just no getting significantly better, without eliminating chemical reaction mass (i.e. that giant container of O2) in favor of some other means of energetic acceleration to enjoy the benefits of Newtonian physics.
"But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist."

A later statement from SpaceX confirmed that after the landing burn started, "SN11 experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly," adding that "teams will continue to review data from and work toward our next flight test."

I thought it stood supreme until I was informed of an actual intentional space maneuver entitled "lithostaging": the intentional removal of spacecraft sections via collision with a hard surface.
