A few more boosters and proper timing, I think they could push earth into path of SMOD.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

I wonder what the lifting capacity of that crane is, and the weight of the rocket.

That is a Liebherr LR 11350 with a 1500 ton capacity.

Super Heavy is estimated to be about 300 tons dry.

Thought I was seeing things at first but it's being followed by a fuel tank.

Good views of the tiles. Still big gaps thought. Amazing it's already rolling down the road considering they only just put the nosecone on yesterday.

Winds are too high today. Looks like wind speed will be low enough to stack early tomorrow morning.

That's one tall rocket.  I wonder when SpaceX will get their problems with the FAA squared away so they can launch that beast?
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.
