Extra bonus points if it comes down in Mexico

If this was NASA this wouldn't be so funny. With every hard landing NASA would have to pause for a year or two while they conduct a $100 million study and then spend $3 billion changing the design of a valve. Elon turns his head and yells "NEXT! and change that %$#! valve by tomorrow morning" while we play landing pad bingo.

Road closure has been canceled so a scrub is assumed. Think the weather is the issue

Oh crap, we're screwed. Maybe she'll treat it like her border job and never show up.

No hop on Monday! The Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) for May 3 has been removed. TFRs are currently posted for Tuesday and Wednesday, meaning the soonest that Starship SN15 could fly is now May 4.

At some point it makes sense to make that airspace its own actively controlled airspace like any other airport.  Temporary everything bureaucracy is pointless waste and drag.

Thanks.  I have the video up, but the sound turned down.  I didn't noticed the title change to note it was scrubbed.

Did we skip over Spacex bring four astronauts home on a night landing a few days ago?

Get in the bunker!

Rocket debris from China's space station launch is falling back to Earth — but where?
The Long March 5B rocket's core stage could fall from space any day now.

If it's unpredictable, how are they telling us about it before it happens?

"Raptor service truck" back to the pad. Could be a scrub or just a check. Still over 4 hours left in the launch window.
