New test tank alert! Overnight, SpaceX stacked a brand new test tank in the Megabay. While we are yet to learn the official name for this test tank, this is the 13th 9m wide test tank that has been produced at Starbase, so weíre calling it Test Tank 13. (1/6)

📸: @ChameleonCir



In this video, you can watch the forward and aft sections move into the Megabay, and get stacked with each other. (2/6)

📸: @LabPadre @NASASpaceflight



If you have been watching the RGV Starbase Weekly streams, you may recall a test tank forward section inside of the Starfactory. Well, we finally know what itís for! (3/6)



The aft section is reassigned from Ship 28, and has been modified. Most notably, the stringers over the dome weld have been partially cut off. This reverts it to a nearly identical design to S24ís stringer layer. (4/6)

📸: @CosmicalChief @RGVaerialphotos @LabPadre



Donít worry about Ship 28 though. There had been signs that a different aft section was reassigned to S28 for a little while, this just finally tells us why we observed this. (5/6)



So there we go. A test tank with a Ship Aft due to go onto the Can Crusher should be an interesting sight! Hopefully we see this make it's debut soon. (6/6)

Booster 7 conducted what appeared to be a multi-engine spin prime test. Meanwhile, work on Booster 10 and the Orbital Launch Mount continued.

Several trailer loads of unknown mystery unknowns brought in to the launch site. Didn't catch the tarps coming off, but these seemed interesting. But I'm obviously unsure why.
