50/40/10 raptors/stage-zero/heat-shield.Voted raptors to view results. (It was 6-months before the 14-engine static fire, with an all-engine static fire only happening last month). A lot of that was stage-zero, but I'm inclined to think most of that was raptors.

OK I've added an option for people who think the FAA license is an issue. In hindsight I should have added this one when I set it up. I know a lot of people don't think the FAA is a big problem but where launch is concerned what they say goes. If they aren't fully happy nothing will be leaving the pad anytime soon. I hope no one thinking "So what. Launch anyway. They're only bureaucrats." If they are they should realise that can happen only onceAfter that you are done. No more launches in the US. Ever. And ITAR will prevent Musk moving offshore and setting up again. BTW that would go for anyone else as well.
The FAA launch license is not and never has been the main holdup.
