And another one for B7.

That's four Spin Prime tests in total this window for those keeping count.

Frost line now forming on Ship 24.

Chopsticks were also lowered after Booster 7's static fire.

And big Ship 24 static fire. Looked good. Two engines fired according to SpaceX.

A few residual fires around the pad afterwards, but soon burned themselves out.

Ship 24 fired what appeared to be multiple Raptor engines just a few hours after Booster 7 conducted a single engine static fire.
