Cars back to the pad, and sheriff's deputies seem to have abandoned the roadblock (though they're both now parked outside the launch site gate, so it's not really clear if the road is open or not).

Apart from the venting, there was what sounded like another igniter test as cars were returning to the pad.

You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

Well, it's a new week, and the pad seems to be clear for today's testing. Some venting on and around OLM. No OP notice.

Frost-line growing on CH4 tank now too. Alex notes on stream that the methane re-condensers in the OTF don't seem to be running, so not 100% clear what's being loaded right now. Expectation seems to be a spin prime test.

Oof, I don't think they were planning for the fire part!

Still smoking, but seems to be much less than earlier.
