Booster 7 now returns to high bay for robustness upgrades & booster 8 moves to pad for testing.

Next big test is probably full stack wet dress rehearsal, then 33 engine firing in a few weeks.

Booster 8 is now rolling out of the Mega Bay! Elon said just a few hours ago it would be going to the pad for cryogenic proof testing so that means the test campaign for Orbital Flight #2 is now ON!!

Ship 25 and Booster 8 seeing eye to eye. Hopefully this should be the next full stack flight from Starbase. Coming soon!

No engines installed on Booster 8, as expected. It does have all chines and HPU covers so it's certainly more complete than when Booster 7 rolled out first

Booster 8 is entering Highway 4, as the local air force (birds) provide a flypast.

 I guess this is a big deal for the coyotes. It sounds like 50 of them howling at the pad.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

 An evening pad pic, Ship 25 taking a sunset stroll, and what Jupiter and three moons look like with a handheld camera in the wind.
 I think Jack did a fair bit better tonight.
