Google Maps view of SpaceX fleet
« on: 12/16/2020 03:26 pm »
Google Maps has a pretty good shot of the majority of SpaceX’s fleet at Port Canaveral.

Seven of the vessels can be seen here all berthed together.

Also visible are a booster being processed on the stand, the transporter, and the second crane used for booster lifts.  Octagrabber is on OCISLY, and JRTI is in the process of being upgraded.

Scroll north a short distance and you can see a recovered fairing being processed.

Must be a reasonably old image, JRTI still has its new thrusters on deck. Cool regardless!

I count six... 2 ASDS, two with helipads between them, and two fairing catchers below them. Which one am I missing??

You're missing the helipadless ship sandwiched between the two helipadded ships.

At least I'm in good company in making that mistake now!
