Lots of activity at Starbase and rumor is Elon will be making a big announcement on Thursday.

Abort  at 13 seconds
Waiting to see if they recycle

edit: Was actually aborted at engine ignition. Clock was showing 13 which was actually +13 and I had a duh moment.

Scrubbed for the day.
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.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Moving S20 to the chopsticks. They may do a lift tonight or tomorrow.

Not good

SpaceX has lost as much as 80% of the Starlink satellites launched on Thursday due to a solar storm, combined with the intentionally low deployment orbits used for debris managements.

Sigh, not yet.

Methinks they've encountered a few more bugs than they expected.  It is the first time they have attempted this procedure, after all.

They started to do the lift less than 5 minutes after I decided they were probably going to wait until tomorrow and I went to bed  :facepalm:

Rewind to 10:00pm and go from there https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhJRzQsLZGg

B4 + SN20 = 4-20

Now did Elon do that on purpose or not?

No, it's all just proof we're in a simulation.
