    Well, candidate, it's not like they asked her. ;) Good to see the reusability going in the direction that was advertised.

    Well done! Their hover and landing code base seems to be very solid as it worked first time for Starhopper and SN5. Even this early design legs did...

    Starship SN-05 had a successful static fire. No accidental mass simulator launch or tank farm schrapnel strikes. so all set for the hop!

    Yes it's all good now. Just a bit of water left to drain at Boca Chica, SN5 still standing and prepping for static fire as we speak.

    If the hurricane path changes a bit, we might see the 150 meter hop before the static fire test.
