Starship B7 static fire
SpaceX has cleared the pad decks of both Suborbital Pad B and the Orbital Launch Mount. With an alert notice in effect, static fire testing of both S24 and B7 is possible. Now waiting for final personnel to clear the area and for the roadblock to go up.
Roadblock is up. Just awaiting final pad clear now. Then, commentated stream!
More solid confirmation that they will test the booster. Chopsticks are going up!

Orbital launch mount chilldown has begun. Static fire occurred a little over two hours from this point on Tuesday. We will see what happens today!
The left side of the orbital launch mount is now venting in what looks like an engine chill bleed line. This is a new spot as compared to what we saw two days ago. Could indicate different engine(s) will be fired today.

LOX subcoolers are spooling up and the orbital launch mount is venting again. Could they be going again!?!
And now the support van is lining up at the roadblock. I think this tank farm thing was a false alarm. We'll see.
