Crews have been inspecting/fettling the ship clamps on the HSR. Wondering, now, if this is the reason for a destack. Maybe the crewlift guys, that were up there yesterday, spotted an issue after stacking...?
@LabPadre #R2

For people wanting to view this on NSF before it gets trimmed off, work started at 6:47 a.m. CST ending at 7:19 a.m.  Of the two that were visible from the NSF camera, one of the clamps was continually being worked on.  At one point it appears that sawing was occurring on the connecter.  Lighting was poor as work on the HSR occurred at daybreak and some clouds were hiding direct sunlight.  Yes, there was one engineer that was blue but I'm confident he was not Thrawn.

PS  I have a video of that inspection coming up later.

Today's planned road closure has been revoked. No real surprise there.

The SQD press plate has been re-installed on S28, meaning she's pressurised and can support herself once the chopsticks have released their grip...without fear of denting.

Here is that video extract of the HSR inspection.  Length 17 min.

Time-lapse of Starship Ship 28 destacked from Booster 10, a day after the being stacked. It is unknown the reason for the destack, but hopefully it will be for a short period.

Starship were meant to fly and our next one launches in about 3 weeks, but I recommend waiting for a few more test flights before hopping on board

While we wait for Ship 28 to be stacked once again atop Booster 10, a comparison between the first stacking by the chopsticks of the four pairs we have had until now.
Stay tuned to @NASASpaceflight's Starbase Live to see what happens next: http://nsf.live/starbase

PA announcing "Hop of S28 beginning in 5 minutes." That's a cute way of saying "Stack" I hope!

#R2 also showed the stabilisation pins are engaged.

...and #LabCam shows the crane with hook down, most likely ready to remove the press plate.

The press plate has been removed from S28. Earlier, the ship was lifted, just a foot or 2...so crews could check the HSR attachment points, as they had checked the same points on the HSR. Hopefully they gave the all clear, and can now go ahead with restack.

We're hoping Ship 28 will be restacked with Booster 10 shortly. It's been hovering over the stand for a while as workers check out the aft.

Live for now on SBL before live commentary:

It was another beautiful sunset tonight. Booster 10 and Ship 28 were de-stacked early this morning.
It appears SpaceX is preparing to stack again.
Watch NSF’s live coverage.

Ship 28 starts the second lift after an overnight stay on the pad.  Lift off time 07:12:12 CST.  But stop 4 feet above the transport ring for 15 min. before continuing upward.

A bit too early.  Still hanging a few inches from mating.

It was difficult to determine exactly when the ship started to lower due to the slow and almost imperceptible descent that took nearly 1.5 hours.  But all the cams back off.  So the stack is connected.
