Chopsticks have opened. Booster 7 is securely on the SPMTs.

Closure has been extended to 2AM, so, about 6 hours remaining.

A lot of vehicles currently at the suborbital tank farm. They returned to the pad at around 6PM local.

Methane recondenser is on! Confirms LCH4 presence. Good sign.

Propellant loading has not started yet. Per previous testing timelines, we would have expected it to begin by now. We will see what happens. Only a little over two hours left in the window. No time to go back to the pad and troubleshoot if necessary.

Looks like de-pressing which is depressing. 😩

1 of the 13 center engines on Booster 7  has been removed. I definitely expected more damage to the outer 20 R2's so this was a bit unexpected.

Great catch by agent @mouser58907

7 Raptors removed from B7 @LabPadre

Not clear if this is for inspection, repair or replacement.

Edit to add:

Raptors coming out of the megabay. Several were seen last night, and so far I've seen 3 today. Shots of the other 2 will follow in just a bit.

Celebratory depress vent. They don't take half measures when they want to start the depress "All vents, open!"
