Speculation this is just a test fit so SN20 may be coming back down.

Yep, Elon just wanted to see if everything fit together. SN20 is back in the barn getting the rest of the tiles put on. Reminded of a kid playing with lego blocks.  :rofl:

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

Disregard bureaucrats, acquire orbit.  =D

I like that they rolled with the computer failure and didn't abort the whole show.  *looking at ULA*

How long has BO been working on the New Glen rocket?  Development was started in 2012.  First launch was slated for this year, but has been pushed back until first quarter of next year at the earliest.
I'm skeptical of that projected time, too.  I guess I'll believe it when I see it.
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.

Booster & Ship will return to orbital launch pad on Monday (winds allowing). Just finishing off some small plumbing & wiring, which is easier in high bay.

NASA "reluctantly agrees" to extend the stay on SpaceX's HLS contract by a week bc the 7GB+ of case-related docs in the Blue Origin suit keeps causing DOJ's Adobe software to crash and key NASA staff were busy at Space Symposium this week, causing delays to a filing deadline. lol
