This is why they need that bridge crane. Temporary solution... chop a hole in the top of the high bay for the crane. A very SpaceX'ish fix to the problem. 😉

It's time to make those bets for SN11...

I'll take all squares.  Betting on an airborne explosion.

Are we betting like roulette?  I'm guessing it plonks on the border of C2 and C3.

Looks like SN11 had a good static fire today so unless there's something we're not aware of yet SN11 could be flying within the next few of days, tomorrow even.

SpaceX will be landing Starships on Mars well before 2030. The really hard threshold is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining.

Status on LabPadre shows "no launch today" but there is tank farm activity, not sure why. Maybe another static fire?

I have received an “Alert” notice and a road closure has been scheduled from 7 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 26. According to the Cameron county the closure is for engine testing (static fire) and 10km flight. 🔥🚀🔥@NASASpaceflight

Tank farm activity already 

It appears they're going for both a static fire and flight the same day

Cool fog around SS and the tank farm in the moist morning air in addition to the usual morning fog there

Static fire
Now waiting if Mary gets an evac order for the village, if she gets one that is a sign it was a good static fire and there should be a flight attempt today
