They should have built an EV crawler.  Won't someone think of the climate?!?

Should just launch from the building. This is what happens when there are no evil geniuses or slow witted henchmen on your design team.

So that's what NASA has been missing all these years!
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.

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

The FAA has now pushed back the completion of its environmental review to the end of April.  Who didn't see this coming?  That was a rhetorical question.

Continuous video for the first stage landing on the drone ship.  It didn't blank out like it normally does.  That was pretty cool.

And then it cuts off
I think someone pushed the wrong button somewhere.
I just checked the launch site (Vandenberg) should be in day light now but video was showing a night launch

Sigh

Warning AA tends to over dramatize things so when I get more time I will do some digging.

Quote
The Sierra Club is claiming victory as the Army Corps of Engineers closes the Starbase permit for expansion for environmental concerns.  Why did SpaceX fail to provide the required information in time?  Has Elon Musk already decided to move Starship launch operations to the Cape?

Starship may NEVER launch from Boca Chica! Environmental groups claim victory over SpaceX.

I've heard this is a nothing thing.  This is just expanding certain buildings on the site.

Corps of Engineers is going to approve just about anything SpaceX wants.  But there's no point expanding anything until the FAA gets off their ass and gives a decision on the launch permit.
