Starship 24's Starlink V2 satellite PEZ dispenser is permanently closed for business. The new cover is very thoroughly tack welded all around the edges now.

S24 has been lifted off of Suborbital Pad B and onto a waiting transport stand.

Ship 24 has been removed from its mount and released by the crane. It's now making a run for it! Hopper won't stand for any shenanigans at the launch site, however.

#SpaceX load testing the #booster hold down clamps by simulating the booster with a metal plate in the clamps, and putting them under load stress using the #LR11000 crane. Possibly pointing towards an upcoming *many* engine SF at #Starbase? @LabPadre

SPMT's have moved to the #MegaBay along with a large amount of counter weights. It's looking like a #Booster7 rollout possibly within the next 48 hours!

Starting to think #Booster8 testing has been put on hold

I really enjoy watching all this activity on the OLM, to me it looks like they're clearing off all the odds and sods from up there? @CSI_Starbase

Looks like clearing OLM to be ready to receive a booster?

Another thing on B7 rollout list checked... An SPMT has just gone under the OLM work platform's stand to finally move it away after weeks of work on the Table.
